Team Leadership No one is an island… organisations prosper through the activity of groups of people working together towards a common goal. We all know this, so why does it go wrong so often? This workshop aims to demystify the function and leadership of teams and provide a pragmatic resource to assist managers in getting the best out of the teams that they have to work with. While the focus will be on those skills needed to lead a team, the programme will give opportunity to evaluate individual’s existing team leadership skills.
Who should attend • Anyone who wants to lead a team more successfully • All those people who feel that their team’s performance could be improved
Why you should attend When groups of people come together to do work – we recognise this as a ‘team’ – we know that sometimes there seems to be so much conflict. The success of that group is often down to the conflict-handling skills of the leader who can resolve any issues, get the group to focus on the task in hand, and ensure that everyone functions as effectively as they can. This programme is designed to give participants a clear understanding of their own behaviours and equip them with the skills to resolve the team’s problems leading to improved performance.
What the programme will cover • The types of teams are there in organisations? • How to start teams on the right track • A process for evaluating individual’s contribution to a team • Ten steps to successful team building • The four ‘A’ approach to managing conflict • A review of group communication techniques • The development of clear action plans to put learning into practice
Training Methodology This workshop will be highly participative and your seminar leader will present, guide and facilitate the learning, using a range of methods including discussions, case studies and exercises. Where appropriate, these will include real issues brought to the workshop by delegates. The workshop is backed-up with a full delegate workbook, visual aids, and case material where appropriate.
Workshop Duration Usually one day as a guide although some organisations have benefited from a more comprehensive two-day programme – sometimes split over a few weeks as issues that arise on the first day may take a while to resolve internally. Be prepared to be flexible – we are!
Maximum Group Size Ideally, no more than 12 people per workshop but since this event is designed as an in house programme with your key people, it can be adjusted to accommodate your needs.
