ACL Team Leadership Development Programme

Adair-Team-Leader-Level-2015Action Centred Leadership™ or ACL® has been developed by John Adair to become one of the best known leadership models in the world. Organisations worldwide use it to develop their leadership capability and management skills because it is both practical and highly effective. Our Action Centred Leadership courses are focused, practical and immediately effective at developing the skills and understanding your Team Leaders need to deliver outstanding leadership in your organisation.

What is the ACL Team Leadership Development Programme?

It’s a complete programme designed to deliver more effective team leadership and employee engagement.

Leadership is the Captain of the Ship, setting the direction of travel and making sure you get to your ultimate destination. Team Leadership is the delegated responsibility that makes sure the whole organisation is aligned and moving in the same direction. Leadership is complementary to and different from Management. Your Team Leaders will identify the crucial differences between Team Leadership and Team Management and the different focus and skills that each discipline requires of them.

It’s about Leadership Skills.

Skills are always the application of knowledge. It is not enough for Team Leaders simply to know what Leadership is, they also have to be able to do it, to apply that knowledge in specific circumstances. More than that, they need to understand why and how what they do works. On this programme they will learn the knowledge, skills and understanding of Team Leadership which comes from practice over time and be able to apply those lessons to have a direct impact on your people and your business immediately.

It’s about Development.

Development is a progression from one state to another. Development should follow a carefully designed sequence where one stage builds on the foundations of the previous stage. Your Team Leaders will develop their Leadership capability by progressing from simple activities to complex exercises, from general principles to specific application, from familiar situations to more challenging Leadership experiences – a proven way for them to learn effectively and thoroughly.

It’s a carefully designed and proven Programme.

A Programme is a series of complementary activities that collectively lead to a planned and pre-determined outcome. Your ACL Team Leadership Development Programme will take your Team Leaders through a series of preparatory steps, followed by exposure to practical learning based upon experiences, supported by sound Action Centred Leadership theory and consolidated by planned and evaluated application of their learning. They will be provided with systemic support to enable them to apply their learning back in the work place to achieve outcomes you can measure in your business.
