The workshop starts with a personal assessment showing participants their most natural traits when it comes to encouraging and sponsoring teamwork. We define the terms and basic building blocks of teamwork, but also dispel myths that are commonly held views but not very helpful. The facilitator keys into these preferred roles of the participants and shows how this knowledge can be used to improve team performance – in the participants’ own peer team and in their subordinate teams.

Critical to all teamwork is the underlying issue of communication. The communication process is broken down into component parts and each is examined in relation to the building blocks of teamwork, and the individual styles of the participants.

Throughout the workshop, participants receive tools to help on their teamwork journey, and there is plenty of time to practice them. This programme is supported by a number of online tools that are available to participants following the workshop, including the ability to contact the facilitator for guidance after the workshop ends. A great management development opportunity.
