The Team Leadership and Motivation Diploma Course provides the information and tools needed to forge your own path and create your own ideas of what makes a great leader, whilst being backed up by a foundation of knowledge from those who have gone before you.
The Team Leadership and Motivation Diploma Course deals with the 'what'. To give a better understanding of what leadership actually is, as well as how it differs to management, this module introduces the concept of leadership and being a leader; discussing definition and purpose.
The study of leadership is a historic one but this said, it is not one that never gets stagnant, as changes in society and the challenges faced by leaders, demand constant evolution of theories and practices. You will learn the history of leadership theories as well as the different types of leadership.
The course hones in on the more specific and simplified categories or frameworks of leadership, known as 'leadership styles'. These ways of behaving, often guided by a leader's own aims and personality are discussed at length; giving insight into how no style is 'better' than another but could be more fitting to a particular situation and how it can be necessary to switch leadership styles as circumstances demand.
We look at motivation and how to motivate is one of the most important things to understand, to be an effective leader. You will learn the definition of motivation, the conditions that support or impede it, its relationship to leadership, and how to use it in the workplace.
Being a leader is not for everyone and is certainly not for the faint of heart. They are responsible for developing vision, leading and motivating diverse groups of people, facing daily personal issues and managing the problems and expectations of others too, taking on company responsibilities to enhance productivity and achieve growth, and keeping up with technological and cultural changes, and this is before attending to the ever-growing to-do list.
