Having an effective team around you is crucial. However, it is an area that is often left to chance, which can lead to demotivated individuals that do not feel part of the business and consequently do not perform.

This course looks at what it takes to lead an effective team and how you can get the best out of the people in it by understanding the role of leader, both personally and from the point of view of the team.
