Leadership Essentials: Supporting
Numerous studies suggest that when people feel supported at work they are more productive. There are numerous ways that leaders can provide support, but proactively looking after the health and safety of your team, finding ways to make the workplace more fun and upbeat, and ensuring that no-one is bullied or harassed are all important.
‘Leadership Essentials: Supporting’ provides an overview of why a safe and enjoyable working environment is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how supporting your team can help you become a better leader.
The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at supporting in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:
Health and Safety
Fun and Humour
Bullying and Harassment
Please note: You can only unlock Leadership Essentials and Spotlights if you are a member.
