Week 6: Challenges for every leader
Welcome to Week 6 of the free badged course Leadership and followership. Last week, you looked at followership from the perspectives of both follower and leader, and considered the importance of follower engagement and development.
This week, you’ll focus on some of the key challenges that leaders face – building an effective team, dealing with internal politics, motivating and developing staff, and leading change. Each section will encourage you to consider the issues and look at potential solutions to each challenge.
Now watch this video as Lynne introduces the week.
By the end of this week, you will be able to:
- recognise a range of common leadership challenges
- reflect on challenges you have observed or experienced
- describe ways in which common leadership challenges might be addressed.
