The Tailored Team Leader Development Programme
Team Leaders are key people in the organization who have invaluable knowledge and experience, but they often struggle when it comes to assuming leadership behaviours. Our Team Leader Development Programme offers a “hands-on” approach with greater emphasis placed on shadowing and mentoring the Team Leader during their daily routine. It tailors a ‘from-to’ path for each participant based on an understanding of their needs, the organisational culture, the shop floor management system and the development plans of their organisation.
We understand that for Team Leader Development Programmes to be effective, organizational context is critical. Our Guiding Principles for the programme are therefore;
- Through a scoping visit by our Coaching Team, we will develop a clear understanding of your organization’s strategic goals and how your team leader structure fits into that strategy.
- We will work with you to establish the current state and agree the scope of the development programme to be offered.
- We will tailor the programme to fit with your working patterns, with delivery typically in three phases over a 60-day period with an on-site Benchmarking Review and coaching session at the end of each phase.
- We will ensure continuous feedback to management and stakeholders at the end of each phase to appraise them of progress and highlight any areas that may require further support.
In addition, our Programme offers participants remote support from coaches as and when required, as well as the opportunity to visit other manufacturers to observe best practices. This is particularly impactful for visual learners.
As part of the programme, each Team Leader will identify a continuous improvement activity/plan which we suggest should be linked to your internal recognition process. The continuous improvement activity/project will involve the Team Leader working with both team members and support team members and will ideally include the application of a problem-solving tool. The activity/project could, for example, include a 5S project, a Quality problem, a cost reduction activity or a team building exercise.
