Leading High Performance Teams

Start Date: September 24, 2014 | Duration : 2 days | Price : 4500 AED

Context to this Workshop

  • There is a difference between leading a team versus managing a ‘group’ of colleagues
  • Many times the Manager does not see the opportunities to leverage teamwork and motivation which can be refined through team development
  • The primary focus of the leader tends to be on ‘people’ and their individual development, with a lack of attention to the health and development of the team
  • The development of a team is a 24/7 process, and  is not achieved by a one-off teambuilding session

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Undertake a simple assessment exercise to define the state of their teams using practical case studies, from which clear action plans can be developed
  • Demonstrate key teamwork and team development concepts through a series of practical activities
  • Describe the role of team development by developing a continuous improvement process 
  • Leverage teamwork and team dynamics to improve business results
