What makes a Successful Team?
Successful teams are created when the leader provides a clear sense of purpose while focusing on building an environment where members are empowered, motivated and challenged and where individuals feel their strengths are being acknowledged and fully utilised.
"High performance teams" always look for ways to improve their business performance. This stand-out feature sets them apart from others.
In this course leaders will focus on:
- Managing team dynamics to ensure the team is working at peak performance.
- Enhancing awareness of team processes and the stages of team development.
- Recognising one’s preferred and most effective role within a team.
- Experimenting with new behaviour by enhancing behavioural repertoire in order to adequately lead in given situations.
- Ways to lead groups to deliver objectives and outcomes.
- Acknowledging the impact team member fulfilment has on team performance.
- Identifying team member strengths and their role preferences.
- Team roles: task focused and maintenance focused.
- Analysis of one’s own preferred role and the effect it has on other team members.
- Giving and receiving feedback in order to create trusting and viable work and personal relationships.
- Understanding the power of open, respectful and courageous feedback.
- Implementation of behavioural change created by increased self-awareness.

Securing Your Organisation’s Future:
High performing teams don’t just happen! Developing teams of people who work well together and who harness the differing strengths and attributes of all team members requires leaders and managers who understand the process involved and are prepared to put effort into the things that will make the difference.
Every team is different but the factors that determine a team’s success – or otherwise – are well understood and can be developed so that success isn’t something that is left to chance.
