Critical Skills for Team Leaders

Applying an organisational development approach to leading

Author, consultant and director of ANZSOG’s Executive Fellows Program, Robin Ryde, demystifies leadership and shares insights in how to align personal, team and organisational elements of leadership.

“Leadership is not that mysterious, although it’s easy to lose your way,” Robin Ryde says. “Having a clear view about who you are as a leader, and how this aligns to your role as a team and organisational leader is critical.”

Key benefits

This two-day workshop is ideal for emerging leaders who want to advance their careers and are keen to understand what they will need to do and how they will need to think, when they take on senior leadership roles. New and emerging leaders who want to work more effectively with their team will understand how to impact and influence team activity and morale.

You will develop the diagnostic skills to help you understand organisational health and the variables that impact on workplace culture, as well as the contribution and impact of your own personal leadership style on your team.

You will learn skills to develop your confidence and resilience. You will gain a greater level of self-awareness, and clarity about where to focus your attention when exercising leadership. You will strengthen your ability as a team leader and discover a model of team performance that values trust and pays attention to conflict and commitment.
