Contributing as a Virtual Team Member
Companies often opt to create virtual teams in place of on-site teams. This allows employees to work from home or remote locations. However, if not managed appropriately, remote working may cause breakdowns in communication, collaboration, and teamwork.
In this course, you'll learn how to develop the skills you need to show team leadership and be an effective member of a virtual team. You’ll explore personal traits that are useful when working on a team remotely. You’ll also learn strategies to stay connected with other team members, and ways to manage your time and overcome the challenges associated with managing teams remotely.
In our ever-changing business world, the successful organization is the one that innovates successfully – survival depends on it. Innovation leadership plays a pivotal role by developing and supporting a culture that is open to a creative, innovative mindset.
In this course, you'll learn the requirements for successful innovation and how to overcome obstacles to innovation. You'll also learn the characteristics of an innovation culture and how to establish a flexible innovation process that encourages creativity and innovative thinking in others.
Leading with Strategic Thinking
Charting the future in today's business environment requires leaders to think strategically like never before. Strategic thinking requires analysing opportunities and problems from a broad perspective, continually assessing your organization and industry, and applying your insights to achieve sustainable competitive advantage.
In this course, you'll learn the characteristics that distinguish leading with strategic thinking and the competencies required to do so. You'll learn how strategic management incorporates sound business strategy into your decision making, helping you meet your team's and organisation’s goals.
Leadership Insights on Strategic Thinking
Thinking strategically is all about the big picture, not individual brushstrokes. Leaders need to ask lots of questions to gain the new perspectives that are so vital to developing successful strategies. To get it right, get out of the box!
Building and Leading Successful Teams
No one is an island, and this is particularly true in business. Success is dependent upon skilled, committed individuals coming together to achieve common goals. Building teams is essential to personal and organizational success. Whether your group is permanent or temporary, efficient and effective team leadership is essential.
In this course, you'll learn methods for team building and team leadership. You'll also learn strategies for avoiding and mitigating team dysfunction and conflict. Finally, you'll learn how successfully leading teams is integral in the modern marketplace.
Leadership Insights on Building & Leading Teams
Building and leading an often-disparate group of people is a formidable challenge, but done correctly, teams offer numerous advantages. Find out when and why you need teams, as well as how to develop teams that are highly effective.
Creating a Successful Business Execution Culture
Leaders must execute the strategies they help create. Without execution, a strategy is just an idea. In this course, you'll learn how to build and lead an "execution culture" that empowers employees to translate strategy into action.
How to Build Trust in a Team
The leader should embody credibility, reliability, intimacy and low self-orientation, and encourage a focus on others, collaboration, long-term relationships, and transparency. Comment on other’s feelings; encourage them to speak up; be vulnerable yourself.
Leadership Insights on Leading Innovation
To lead innovation you need to first avoid the mistakes leaders make in innovation. Then you need to create a space for innovation—where debate and learning can foster creativity and people can join together to do the work that matters.
Leadership Insights on Leading a Culture of Execution
Are you ready to get the job done? If so, you need to first let it go! Leading a culture of execution starts with delegation. To develop high-performance teams, empower others, define project expectations, and create a level playing field.
Leadership Insights on Leading through Change
Businesses fail without change, so it makes sense to learn everything you can about leading through change—from planning for resistance to engaging teams to moving forward without losing day-to-day focus. You can make change possible.
Leading through the Challenge of Change
Things change. This is a truism in both personal and business life. Whether that change comes in the form of personnel, organizational hierarchy, or processes, change is inevitable in the workplace. Leading change requires successful leaders to have a process for managing change, whatever its source.
This course will help you undertake change management and set the stage for implementing change. It will provide strategies for overcoming resistance to change and steps to help lead your team through the change process.
Leadership Insights on Leading Collaboratively
Collaborative leadership requires reciprocity, humility, and modelling collaboration for team members. Discover tools leaders can use to foster collaboration.
Facilitating Sustainable Change
All organizations must go through some type of change in order to adapt to new market forces. Adapting to change, whether it involves new processes, strategies, or personnel, is never easy, but is a vital aspect of a company’s long-term success and resilience.
In this course, you’ll learn about key outputs of a change initiative, such as success factors that improve an organisation’s flexibility and make it more resilient. You’ll explore how to identify stakeholder groups needed when adapting to new processes, and the roles they play in changing operations. You’ll also learn how to evaluate the three keys to sustainable change: discomfort, vision and proper skill level.
