Team Leadership and Supervisor Development

Team Leaders and Supervisors are the primary link between your organization’s goals and the people who turn those goals into results. The attitudes, decisions and actions of your Team Leaders affect profit, productivity, service levels, and morale.

Most Team Leaders and Supervisors, however, are not well equipped. They have had little or no preparation for effective leadership.

Through one-on-one coaching or group facilitation, we enhance the effectiveness of new and existing Team Leaders.

We begin with a battery of assessments that help determine how a Team Leader can most effectively lead according to his or her natural talents and value system. We then develop the Team Leader's core abilities through one-on-one coaching relationships (or group facilitation when requested).

Team Leaders apply new skills and habits directly to their jobs while they work with us and are held accountable for progress. This assures sustainable, positive change.

After our initial coaching (typically 12 one-hour meetings), we continue with accountability coaching at intervals of 1, 2, 6, 10, and 16 months with goals and accountabilities between meetings - instilling leadership and goal achievement as a permanent and sustainable part of the Team Leader's life.
