Leading teams – how to build and lead effective teams

Leading teams is about working co-operatively, within the department and across units to achieve shared goals. The perception that staff do not necessarily need to work in teams should be challenged. There are numerous benefits to working together within the unit and across others units in organisations. These include joint problem solving, knowledge sharing and motivation.

Our aim as leaders should be to help everyone take responsibility and contribution to their own and other teams.

Course content

This workshop style training includes the following

  • To help participants deal with conflict – mediate conflicts between staff

Participants should have reflected on the aspects of team working that affect their work. They should be able to identify the things that they are doing right and areas where they need to work on. The aim is to encourage all staff to work with teams more often and value and measure the benefits.

People learn best by doing, not by listening. The training sessions will include a variety of learning activities which include brainstorming, simulations, problem solving, group and individual presentations, video recorded interviews with feedback.

This programme includes 1-day or half-day sessions for organisations and individuals. We suggest a maximum group size of 10 people and we ask people to commit to some homework.
