Team Building and Development

Team Building and Development


A key aspiration for all managers is to create, build and maintain a working environment where employees collaborate in work teams that are high performing and consistently produce good results. To achieve this, managers need to develop the skills of managing and understanding people at individual, group and organizational levels.

This programme draws on contemporary research to explain the factors that contribute to the formation of teams that consistently deliver great results. These include work design, appreciating individual differences, the dynamics of group development and an engaging leadership style.
