How do you build strong resilient teams that can go the distance? Teams that can handle disruption, teams that are focused on achieving important longer term big bold goals rather than short term tactics. Against a backdrop of businesses having to reassess and re-evaluate their short medium and long terms aims, do your teams and your leadership and teamwork skills need a re-think?
This foundation module focuses on the core elements of developing a thriving and effective high-performance team capable of achieving big bold goals. The teaching, exercises, and takeaways will leave each delegate with both the knowledge and the tools to be able to shape the foundations of their team whether they are a team leader, aspiring leader, or a team member.
These tools and ideas apply whether you are developing an existing team, a new team coming together, or you are turning a team around to become a better performing team by putting people first.
This session is designed to provide leaders of people with the tools to create a compelling vision and plan for their team.
