Team Leader Training Course Content

Team Leader Training - Day One - AM

Introductions

What is the purpose of the training?

We are here to answer this very important question:
How can you get the best performance from yourself and others?

The purpose of this team leader training is to initiate a process of improvement, by means of achieving a shared understanding of the exact methods that we need to employ, to rapidly achieve our goals.

What is the reason for the training?

You may have “evolved” into a team leadership-management position; mainly because your organisation has grown recently, and by your high degree of ability.

Now you are a team leader; you may find yourself being expected to lead and manage the team, as well as continuing to work on the front-line and help with the provision of the job.

In addition to doing the front-line work, you must also contend with people-management issues, time management issues, leadership and morale issues, for which you may not had any formal training.

We are here to get some sound and practical guidance on how to get the best performance from ourselves and the team.

We will cover six themes:

Clarity of Purpose is the starting point of all achievement.
  1. Clarity of purpose (Goal focus)
  2. Clear communication skills; accurate language
  3. Time management and delegating skills.
  4. Rational conflict management
  5. Inspire and motivate yourself (personal management)
  6. Inspire and motivate other people (leadership qualities)

Let us take each of these team leader skills in turn:

The number one skill of the team leader is to become a “Goal focused individual”.

A “Clear Goal Focus” is the thing that makes the biggest difference to you results.

The word, “Success” means, “The achievement of a Goal”. Therefore, GOAL FOCUS is the most important quality of the successful team leader.

How to correctly set and communicate goals.

8 part SMART targets - Eight-part SMART makes goal setting a series of eight questions:

  1. What is the goal you need to achieve?
  2. How do you specify that goal using numbers?
  3. How do you specify that goal using words?
  4. How would you measure progress?
  5. What abilities do you need to improve?
  6. What resources do you need to acquire?
  7. What is the time limit?
  8. Is that limit reasonable or over-optimistic?

Exercise: Develop your skills by doing real life, example.

Develop the art of asking the right questions:

Ask questions that relate to your goals and how you can achieve them. How to use the eight-part SMART questions as a delegation tool.

Impression management: The art of making the right impression.

Every day, you leave impressions in the minds of the other people in your team.

How do you want to be perceived by the people in your team?

What impression do you want to leave?

What team leader and personal qualities do you want to be known for?

Exercise: Develop your skills by doing a practical example of "Impression management".

The proper (and the improper) use of humour at work.

A good sense of humour is important.

How can humour work to add value to yourself and the rest of the team?

How have you seen the MIS-USE of humour cause problems in a team?

  • What is the right use of humour?
  • What do you think is the wrong use of humour?

Exercise: Develop your skills by doing practical examples.

Clear communication.

Clarity is a virtue;
Vagueness is a vice

In important quality of team- leadership is to become an accurate communicator.

Leaders-managers must know how to communicate their message with clarity and accuracy. There should be minimal chance of misunderstanding based upon an ambiguous instruction.

Team leaders-managers must NOT give any vague instructions.

You must define your message, and always be able to explain precisely what you mean.

Leadership requires accurate language.

Exercises: Develop your skills by doing practical examples.

Affirmative language or Negative language.

Affirmative language is talking about what you CAN do. (The can-do portion of the job)

Negative language is talking about what you CANNOT do or WON’T do. (the NO-CAN-DO portion of the job).

Non-leaders spend too much time, talking about the no-can-do portion of the job.

Leaders talk about the can-do portion of the job.

There are a billion things we cannot do.

But we are more interested in what we CAN DO.

Leaders spend most their time talking about what they can do and will do.

Practice exercises in turning the conversation from the negative to the positive.

Positive v negative suggestions.

We influence each other by the way we speak. Sadly, some people emit too many “negative vibes”.

For example: The phrase: “DON’T WORRY” is a suggestion to WORRY.

On this course, you will learn how to stop giving negative suggestions, and we hope you will become much more conscious of the way you word your message.

Ensure that the last thing you say is about: "What you DO want".

Exercises: Develop your skills by doing practical examples.

Team Leader Training - Day One - PM

Conflict Management Training

Use reason to resolve conflict, not avoidance nor high emotion.

Conflict is inevitable. Not everyone shares your views.

Interestingly, a conflict can even be beneficial but only if it is handled correctly.

How you handle conflict is an all-important question.

As a team leader, you need to know exactly how to:

  • Use logic to resolve conflict; not anger, upset, tears or tantrums
  • How to resolve a conflict quickly; before it escalates into something more dangerous
  • You need to know when you should compromise: And when NOT to compromise

Proper conflict means:

  1. Never attack the person's character. If you attack their character, you will trigger a negative response. And you will make a dangerous situation, worse. Be careful how you verbalise your message. We will learn how to verbalise conflict messages
  2. Be more factually objective and specific, try not to become emotional and opinionated
  3. Learn the difference between objective language and subjective language. When in conflict, use objective language
  4. Tell them precisely what is wrong, in non-emotional factual terms
  5. Suggest a way out of the conflict situation. Suggest a corrective action
  6. Distinguish between reasons and excuses for not doing something: have a different policy for each
  7. Know when to give ground and compromise and when to NOT compromise

Five common conflict situations: Role play for you to practice your new-found skills

How would you manage these five real-life situations?

Role play practice

Specific tips for constructive conflict management.

Team Leadership Training Summary

Team Leader Training - Day Two - AM

Time management and Positive mental attitude

Time management is the art of making the maximum progress in the minimum time and effort.

Q1 Crisis, Q2 Productive, Q3 Busy, Q4 Fruitless

Time management is about organising yourself and your team so that they are always doing the right things in the correct order.

  • Time managers do not necessarily do the most comfortable things first
  • Time managers do the most valuable things, in the most logical order

Here is the question you should always know the answer to:
What is the most valuable use of your time, right now?

Use the two principles of "Task deadline" and "Task value" as key indicators.
Then do things in the right order:

  1. Q1 Crisis: High value, late work
  2. Q2 Productive: High value, Preparation, prevention and planning
  3. Q3 Busy: Low-value busy-work
  4. Q4 Fruitless: Waste of time activity. Gossip

Distinguish between being "Busy" and being "Productive"

Our most hated enemy is the “Busy but non-productive day”.

Have you ever had one?

Have you ever suffered from the feeling you were busy, but not making much progress?

Time Wasters S.O.S.

Three-time wasters SOS: Self; Others; Systems

Let us do battle with the three time-wasters

  1. Your own bad habits: How you mess-up your time management
  2. Other people: How other people mess you up: And what are you going to do to limit the damage
  3. Poor systems: Do your organisation have any inefficient systems that mess you up. What are you going to do to limit the damage?
You are a limited resource facing an unlimited demand: Therefore, you must prioritise.

Time tips questionnaire.

We have a list of time management questions that are designed to tease-out exactly how you could improve your time management.

You pick four of them and add them to your list.

Delegation – Delegation is the art of entrusting a task to another.

  1. The right way to delegate a task
  2. The common errors to avoid

Prioritisation – the art of putting things into the right order.

Manage your priorities by means of a decision matrix.

Five different types of a decision matrix for you to master:

  • Priority decision matrix : What is the most valuable use of my time right now?
  • Priority decision matrix : What is the most logical sequence?
  • Yes or No decision.
  • If yes, then which one, or what kind?
  • Problem - cause – solution, mapping?

What are the advantages of using a structured approach to decision making?

Manage interruptions by means of the 80/20 principle

The Pareto time management principle states that 80% of the value comes from 20% of the effort.
80 / 20 thinking is about finding the small number of important things that will make most of the difference to the end result. Separating the important from the trivial.
80% of the value of the interruption will be in 20% or less of what they want to say.

Manage the interruption using the “Pareto question”.

You need to figure out a formula that will get 80-100% of the value in only 20% of the time.

How to use Pareto 80-20 rule in time management

Apply Pareto 80/20 to quadrant 3 activities.

We have an important question for you:

How are you going to gain the maximum benefit from any interruption; in the minimum amount of time; without causing offence?

Team Leader Training - Day Two - PM

Every problem contains the seed of an equivalent, or a greater benefit.
Your task is to find it.

Personal effectiveness

How your mental state affects your results. Your attitude affects your actions and your actions affect your results.

Your productivity is dependent on the quality of your actions.

  • If you feel motivated and strong, then you work well and are more productive
  • If you feel demotivated and weak, then you don’t work well and are not very productive

Team leaders need to manage their own levels of self-confidence, positive attitudes, optimism and self-discipline

Your feelings affect your results.

Positive mental attitude techniques

We will show you exactly how you can maintain a positive mental attitude, especially during tough times.

How to affect the emotions of others in the team:

Emotional intelligence. EQ.

Improve your understanding of how to affect the emotions of others and how to instil in them a more positive outlook.

Learn how to avoid common errors. Some managers make so many mistakes they end up demotivating their staff.

Have you ever met a demotivational manager?

We will show you what mistakes you MUST NOT MAKE.

Conversation control. How to manage the content of your conversations. (Do not allow your language to become destructive).

Smart Purpose, Plan, Action, Feedback, Change

Learn the success formula.

All successful action can be described by a simple five-part formula.

  1. Clear goal - Purpose
  2. Formulate your best plan in writing
  3. Take consistent action
  4. Gather and evaluate the feedback. Both positive and negative
  5. Make progress by continually adapting and evolving the plan

This diagram suggests success formula questions:

  1. What is your goal?
  2. What is your detailed plan?
  3. What are your top priority actions?
  4. What feedback measures will you track?
  5. What has been the recent positive feedback?
  6. What has been the recent negative feedback?
  7. What adaptive changes do you think we should make to our current plans to improve on the current situation?

Failure formula; Failure is the opposite of the success formula.

  1. No clear goals
  2. No written plan
  3. No action, slow action, Procrastination
  4. Fight feedback: Become disheartened in the face of setbacks and disappointments
  5. Stand still. Do the same thing this year, as you did last year

The value of “Critical Feedback”

  1. The role of “determination” in success
  2. The role of “stubbornness” in failure

Two Forms of negative feedback. Constructive and destructive.

How to ensure your negative feedback is seen as a constructive communication.

The power of an idea lies in its application.

Team leadership - Final Summary

How will this team leader and management training help you to get the best from yourself and others?

Actions / Feedback / Close

The course has been a true eye-opener, especially how ones own experiences and actions can influence others within the work place, but also in everyday life experiences. A very well presented and factual presentation. The trainer had great interaction and engagement with the delegates. Excellent. Thank you!

The Course Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!
