A group of individuals or a true team working towards achieving agreed goals?
Anyone that is responsible for a team of people needs the ability to analyse both themselves and their team members. What type of leader are they and what are the strengths and weaknesses of their team?
Whatever euphemism is used for change taking place in today’s corporate world, e.g., mergers, takeovers, restructuring, downsizing, consolidation, etc., people can find themselves either thrust into a new group of people with a newly appointed manager, or a manager inherits a ‘team’ of people who are expected to perform as a team from day one!
So much depends upon teamwork and the theories and mechanism that support it.
This course is designed to provoke and challenge thought concerning teams, making it ideal for both new team leaders/managers and those already performing such a role. Delegates will explore the elements concerned with improving team direction, motivation and achieving performance.

- An appreciation of where they currently are in terms of their team’s development

- Qualities and management skills
- Examination of their style of leadership
- The part credibility and trust play
- Motivation theory and its likely impact
- Team Roles
- Communication rules
- Conflict reducing behaviours

What’s been said by those attending it:
‘I never really appreciated how much there was to understand in managing a team’.
‘I now realise, that my problem is that I manage the team the same way that my manager did with the team I was in – and badly!’
‘Times have changed, where once fear ruled, I now understand that fear is short term, getting people on your side by other means makes life more enjoyable for everyone…’
