  • Building and Sustaining Effective Teams

    Date: Tuesday 21 and Wednesday 22 May 2019


    Price: £295.00


    Teamwork is integral to the way most organisations operate.  Despite this, there is often a lack of clarity as to why a team exists or any explicit agreement on how the team members will work together to effectively achieve objectives.  A high performing team has a common purpose and vision, balances the right mix of people with the right skills and knows how to creatively hold differences so as to optimise success.

    To develop and sustain successful teams, effective team leaders/managers create a strong sense of mutual commitment and interdependence.  Such Leaders/managers know how to co-create a culture that nurtures authentic relationships and facilitates the constructive management of difference.  The team leader generates an appreciative culture that is collaborative, embraces ambiguity and achieves quality outcomes.  They also recognise that their team is part of a wider organisational system and know how to support constructive exchange and connection between team members, the wider organisation and key stakeholders.
