Leadership for Performance in HE: Building and Leading High Performance Teams

Programme leadersRichard Andrews

The way that Leaders and managers develop and empower their teams has a profound impact on efficiency and on an organisation’s ability to innovate and meet new challenges. Research from Gallup and others indicates that those organisations that lead effectively, are able to better their competition by 20% or more, experience lower absenteeism, and meet the challenge of change effectively and with enthusiasm.

To achieve the best value from teams, Leaders and Managers need to develop an understanding of their own leadership style and the ability to adjust their approach to best meet the organisation’s objectives. An ability to understand and respond to the intrinsic motivators of staff creates an engaged and success driven culture.
