A team is a dynamic, flexible and highly motivated force that is capable of consistent high achievement. A group is simply a number of people who happen to work together. As organisations and businesses grow in size and complexity, effective teams are required to work together in co-ordinated ways to achieve objectives. So does an effective team evolve or does it have to be developed?

The largest single influence on a team is you. The attitudes and behaviours of the team leader/manager will be reflected in the culture of the team and will determine ‘The way we do things round here’. The CMBD workshop looks in detail at team development and dynamics and the characteristics of high performing teams. An audit of your own team will suggest objectives and development areas for you to consider on your return to the workplace.

The course covers a number of team models such as Belbin and Tuckman and looks at the status, linking, communication, role and leadership structures and how they can affect the team performance. The group is a powerful influence on the individuals within the team and this can have a positive or negative effect. The objective for the day is for you to understand the forces at work within a team, how to focus these to improve cohesion and performance and to start to create a team development plan.

Designed for:

This is a course that suits managers and leaders at first line, middle and senior levels. It assumes that you have some experience of managing a team, department or organisation and that you will be able to relate the concepts and theories to your previous experiences. The course content is excellent for the private, public and third sectors, and compliments the Leadership Skills workshop. If you are new to team management, then we would suggest that you have a look at the Effective People Management course as an excellent introduction to both Teams and Leadership.
