The first reaction of most new leaders is to take on more work - it's a natural reflex. How else can they be sure their project gets done right? But the more the leader takes on, the less motivated the team members become.
The greatest challenge for team leaders is to let go of their work. The leader's job is to provide the tools, motivation and direction the team members need to do the work itself. Unfortunately, many leaders get no formal training in running a team. Giving Leadership Away can help both new and experienced leaders take on that challenge.
The Giving Leadership Away training tells the story of a newly promoted team leader who discovers that giving leadership away is not as easy as it seems. Used to making decisions himself, he starts making decisions for the team, inadvertently preventing them from doing their jobs. And when he does try to share responsibility, team members are not always willing or able to take on the task. But eventually, he learns how to share leadership and foster everyone's potential.
