Exhibiting any of the classic leadership sins is a sure fire way to alienate your team and lose motivation. This session tackles many of the skills that are required of a leader to motivate individuals and get them working together effectively as a team.


INTRODUCTION This guide is designed for a manager or a facilitator to deliver a short workshop featuring videos from the Video Arts Leadership Essentials Series.


Each video comes with a series of activities around the following structure:

LOOK - watch the video and reflect on the content and message.

THINK - activities and questions linking the video to their own experience and workplace. REMEMBER - a summary of the key learning points.


These activities will take about 15 minutes to complete. At the end of this guide is a practical exercise to help bring all of the learning points together.



 Control freakery (Rachel will breathe when I tell her to breathe!)

 Avoiding conflict (It’s fine. It’s just…banter)

 Dithering (Don’t tell them about the specials board now! I’m wrapping this up!)

 Being loved (‘Bezzies forever, love Bad Leader’)

 The importance of small talk (But it’s boring! There I said it)

 Vanity (I now rule over you all from the fourth floor)
