Team Player Skills We hear much about team leadership and rightly so – steerage is fundamental to optimum team performance. But what about the players? What is their role? How can each make a better contribution? This workshop aims to clarify how individuals can make a more valuable contribution to any team they are part of with the aim of improving the overall performance of that team. While the focus will be on those skills needed to become a valuable team player, the programme will give opportunity to evaluate overall team performance.
Who should attend • Anyone who wants to make a better contribution to their team • 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 it does not seem to work as well as it should. The success of that group is down to the collective skills of each player where the performance of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This programme is designed to give participants a clear understanding of their own behaviours and equip them with the skills to make a better contribution leading to improved performance overall.
What the programme will cover • The types of teams are there in organisations? • What sort of team player am I? • A process for evaluating each individual’s contribution to a team • Ten steps to successful team playing • How can I be more assertive? • Developing rules for improved 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.
