Small Team Leadership


If you run a small, tight-knit team, this course is tailored to help you get the most from the group.


Is the small team you lead really high “High Performing”?  Could it actually do better?  Do its members cooperate so perfectly that their total output can be considered outstanding and far exceed the sum of its individual components?

Leading a small team can be tough. When asked, most leaders of small teams will first say that their team is fantastic but, push a bit harder, and it usually becomes clear that there are discordant notes.  Alice doesn’t trust Bob.  Ahmed has financial worries and has been off-form at work for three weeks.  Janice is unhappy and no one knows why.

This short course discusses the dynamics of leading a small team and how, with the right approach, a leader can take it to High Performing Status
