There are many aspects which affect the manner in which a successful manager leads their team. One of the most important aspects is the size of the team. Small teams (usually 3-10 members) require a completely different approach to leadership than larger teams (between 50+) do.
This course is designed to give participants an introduction to the dynamics of running either small, medium or large teams. Different approaches, strategies, techniques as well as management styles will be discussed in order to understand how best to approach ones own management style. At the end participants should understand the dynamics of their teams, how these teams interact with each other and how to adjust the structure of the team to achieve its goals and vision.
