Effective team leadership requires the ability to communication your ideas and intent, using influence and behaviour. “Connection before Content”, start the day with several practical team activities designed to build group identity and establish connections between participants. Why? This will achieve leadership support for participants from within the group, which will assist them for the life of this programme and beyond. By working on improving candidate’s leadership presence and communications skills early in the programme we ensure all modules are positively impacted by improved communications and presentation skills. In this module the participants will prepare and present individual and group presentations. Immediate video feedback on their performance will be provided in order to maximise learning and leadership development.
- MODULE 2: DECISION-MAKING & PROBLEM SOLVING
The second workshop focuses on Decision-Making and Problem - Solving methods and models. The day starts with an immersive problem - solving scenario to define the participants start point level of competency. Next up will be pairs immersive practical scenario-based decision-making using industry related scenarios. Defining your decision space and what autonomy participants have as a team leader, directs these practical decision-making sessions. The afternoon will shift to team project scenario-based decision-making simulations. Learning will be immediate and constant as feedback will be provided to each candidate on completion of each decision-making scenario.
- MODULE 3: LESSONS LEARNED & COACHING
In the third module the candidates will engage with lessons learned ̶ how to lead a learning orientated team. We start outdoors in order to engage in a team leadership practical challenge. The duration of this challenge is two hours. The performance levels during this team challenge will provide the data for the participants to practically apply the “Hot Wash Up” lessons learned method and learn how a well-presented After-Action Review (AAR) that is positively “coached” can significantly improve team performance. The aim is to positively challenge the participants to lead a learning focused team. In the afternoon the candidates will learn how to investigate organisational performance and how to conduct a written AAR utilising real world business examples. Their analysis will then be examined in detail and the candidates will present their AAR for consideration and decision. Again, in line with our method we will provide immediate feedback to the candidates on their individual performance and their team leadership performance.
