Leading Teams

back to Programs

Leading Teams is a program designed to build leadership capacity of aspiring and entry-level managers, teachers (Year-level coordinators, ASTs, APs) support staff and IT Senior Support Officers and Consultants. The program focuses on developing an understanding of ‘the why and how’ of effectively leading others, creating the team conditions for creativity and innovative thinking and building personal leadership skills that support high-performing team practices. These practices include effective communication skills, understanding and resolving conflict in the workplace, how to build capacity, how to delegate and empower others, and how to enact processes for working in teams.

This program is delivered as online and offline learning. The online workshops are real time, locked in calendar events, whereas the Canvas learning components of the program are self-directed activities that can be completed anytime.

Scheduling is mindful of adequate screen breaks and a range of participants’ workplace contexts; to maximise the benefit of being released from duties for a day to engage in professional learning, the online workshop sessions have been scheduled 2-to-a day with the middle part of each day as potentially off-screen activity.

By the end of this program participants will be able to demonstrate their growth in knowledge and skills and will:

  • gain understanding of team dynamics
  • gain understanding of leadership to build effective, high-performing teams
  • enact leadership across the workplace
  • build capacity in team members to lead in your local context
  • gain knowledge and understanding of styles and attributes of leadership
  • understand and utilise a range of team processes and protocols to support effective team practices.
