Effective Frontline Leadership

Empowering the Workplace for Greater Impact

Format availability:



5 Days

Introduction to the course

Why is it that some organisations are so responsive to changes in the marketplace, updating technology and meeting customer needs and others aren’t? It links directly to effective leadership at all levels of the organisation but especially at frontline level. Many organisations claim “people are our most important asset” but research shows that employees frequently admit to giving 50% or less of their potential. Effective team leaders know that they get closer to 100% when they empower their team with their imagination and energy.

Whilst there is no single formula, this comprehensive Effective Frontline Leadership training course explores the critical role of frontline leaders in creating and sustaining employee engagement as a driver for well-being, growth, and profitability within the organisation. Delegates will examine the leadership competencies, skills and behaviours required to build and maintain successful teams and productive outcomes. If you are a frontline leader of teams, this training course offers a compendium of ideas and grounded theory that will impact your practice immediately.
