Learning how to get the best from a diverse group of people who need to work together to achieve their goals can be challenging. Team leadership is often a first step on a leadership career. Learn to lead well now and it will be a building block for your career progression. Teams are notorious for failing to deliver to their potential. Don’t let your team be one of them.

Team Leadership is a complex, judgemental, psychological task. I am a chartered organisational psychologist with over 25 years' experience working with leaders to build teams and improve team performance. I know the theory and have experienced the practice. I have selected the best of both to speed your learning journey in this complex area. By the end of this course, you will be better equipped to create a high-performing team.
