Team Leader

Course
Transferring from a role of an expert to a leadership position is a complicated quest.
One can suddenly find themselves surrounded by many new questions and challenges.
  • How do I actually manage a team?
  • How should I talk to all these people?
  • Why is Katia sabotaging everything, why is Anton late all the time, why does Bohdan seem angry, but he doesn’t say anything?
  • How can I set personal goals that people won’t reject?
  • And how can I set a team goal so that everyone would want to achieve it?
  • How the hell can I set up the teamwork and bear with all this responsibility?
  • Maybe, I’ll just do everything myself?
If you feel like you’re trying to pass this quest blindfolded, dragging an enormous weight of responsibility on your shoulders, lost in anxiety, join our “Team Leader” course. Together we’ll be forming a leader mindset and values, learning to unlock personal and team potential to reach maximal results.
We’ll use coaching as one of the key methodologies because coaching is about healthy productivity. It’s about reaching goals through understanding your needs and triggers. It’s about the deep, sincere motivation for everyone on the team, including yourself. It’s about sharing responsibility because delegation helps both leaders and teams grow. When a team feels trusted and valued by their leader, they are more engaged in work and achieve the best results.

So, take a seat in our rocket, and let’s fly!
