Course features

This course will show you how to and how not to lead a project team, and includes many principles for line managers to adopt. We follow reluctant team leader, George, making mistake after mistake as he starts out in his team leader role. With the help of Harry and his team at his local pub, George learns the three steps managers should take to inspire confidence in their teams, how to involve the team and use their skills, experience and initiative for the benefit of the project.

Set in everyday surroundings, the performers act out realistic situations in a light hearted and entertaining way that will help you recognise some common errors and understand how to correct them. The familiar settings will help you to apply the material to your own workplace.
