This training will teach you how to recognize individual differences in your staff, analyze situations, apply appropriate leadership styles, and develop staff to assume delegated responsibilities.

What combination of personality traits, professional training, and mentoring makes the "best leader?" There is a dearth of information on this topic in both management and social science literature, and no one has formulated a recipe for concocting all that leadership implies: authority, administrative skill, effectiveness, initiative, foresight, energy, influence, and more. The complexity and mystery of leadership do not permit a simplistic approach.


Do you make effective decisions? --Do you act quickly and responsibly? --Can you gather information and present reports based on the information? --Do you use your time and resources effectively? --Do you devise efficient and effective plans, procedures or methods to carry out work?


Show a commitment to your team member’s personal and professional development. It pays to care and to be supportive of the human needs of a team. Work is not accomplished through task orientation alone. A good leader fosters esprit de corps, which keep employees motivated. Team members are happy when they feel that their leader appreciates them as individuals, and when team members are happy, work goes smoothly. As an additional benefit, loyal team members become very protective of a leader or an organization over a hump.
