Leadership Skills Book in PDF Format
Successful team leadership has more to do with making a success of the team you have been given, rather than building an ideal team from scratch. This free eBook explains the core principles of team leadership that will help you get the best out of any team that you find yourself managing.
You will learn how to apply these leadership principles to three different types of team. Firstly, a project team where, even though you are not an expert in all of the technical aspects of the project, you are still expected to coordinate the team's efforts. Secondly, a support team where there are problems with motivation and high staff turnover. Finally, a high-level strategic team where you do not have any direct authority over the other participants.

One of the great challenges when it comes to proper leadership is balancing the various interests of those who you are required to lead. Not everyone is going to have the same goals and aspirations, even within the same business or organization. Therefore, it is the job of a good leader to reconcile all of those various interests and bring them together in a way that keeps the team working in the right direction. With good leadership, it is possible to bring everyone together in a common pursuit even if they have divergent goals among themselves.
