This course is conducted entirely in Polish and only for groups of at least 10 participants
Quite often the terms manager, leader, leadership, management are used interchangeably. These terms are not the same, although they are often intertwined. A manager manages, learns and develops competencies in order to achieve the goals set for him by the organisation, relies on habit and communication with the team, delegates tasks and becomes an auditor. The leader, through his authority and experience, motivates people to action, arouses their desire to develop themselves, their will to achieve the goals together, in a team, and makes them see the sense of what they are doing. All this translates into much better and longer-lasting results.
The course prepares the leader to lead a team based on a workshop that allows for efficient communication, understanding the level of functioning in a team and methods of achieving goals.
