      Overview: Effective teamwork is fundamental to the success of any organisation. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance, or other similar goals, teams are the central methodology of most organisations in the private, non-profit, and government sectors.

      With teams at the core of corporate strategy, your success as an organisation can often depend on how well you and other team members operate together.

      In most teams, the energies of individual members work at cross-purposes. Individuals may work extraordinarily hard, but their efforts do not translate into team effort, and this results in wasted energy. By contrast, when a team becomes more aligned, a commonality of direction emerges, and individual energies harmonise. You have a shared vision and an understanding of how to complement each others’ efforts.

      This one-day workshop is a basic course for team leaders and team members, designed to focus on the characteristics of an effective team player and the elements of an effective team. You will leave the workshop with plans for your personal development as a team player and ideas for developing your team.

      Overview: Being able to let go and delegate tasks to others can be one of the hardest managerial responsibilities. The temptation is just to do it yourself – right? You think it will be quicker after all you're likely to do a much better and quicker job and you simply haven’t got the time to show someone else.

Understand your own management styles to develop the potential of your staff, yourself and ultimately your organisation.
