Programme Overview
Teams are needed because the world we live in requires constant experimentation, a continual response to changing conditions. In our exploration of new conditions and possibilities, we have to rapidly integrate new partners and different work disciplines. The team structure adapts most easily to changing conditions and has the greatest potential for creative solutions and new approaches to work challenges.

This five-days course teaches participants how to develop strategies for leading diverse teams, brainstorming, managing virtual team members, techniques for ensuring effective and productive team meetings, leading vs following and creating highly motivated staff members.

The programme also provides a successful team development process that facilitates the development of a new team or the revitalization of an existing team. Whether your team is an ongoing work group, or a special project based team of limited duration, you will rapidly increase its effectiveness with the use of these teamwork tools and skills.
   
Who should attend
Managers, Program and Project Leaders, Supervisors, Team Leaders, Team members, Individuals who wish to lead teams to high performance, and those preparing for promotion into a managerial role.
