More and more projects are being executed outside of traditional corporate hierarchies, by interdepartmental or even intercompany teams assembled based on competencies. In teams like these, there is often no disciplinary leader. Instead, the team has a lateral leader. That leader is then responsible for the project results but without being a superior in charge of the team. In this course, we will explain what exactly the special characteristics of lateral leadership are. We will use a practical example to show you how lateral leadership operates and what leadership tools are of special importance.
