Course Overview

Team leaders gain respect not from their position, but from their actions. Our course enables team leaders to develop the core principals of communication and motivation, as well as managing performance and giving balanced feedback.

If you want to become a driven leader who understands team dynamics, enrol right away.

How will this course benefit me?

This course will communicate the key skills necessary to become a great team leader. Effective team leadership can bring disparate individuals together and make the team much more than the sum of its parts. This qualification will provide team leaders with the necessary tools to draw the best out of each member of staff for the greater good of the team.

How is the course delivered?

This course benefits from a dedicated website where learners can download course materials. It is made up of five modules, four core and one optional. Each module has an assignment workbook for you to complete and then email back to Buttercups to be assessed. Of course, you can still choose the paper-based version and submit homework by post if preferred.
