This is an experientially-based course which develops the crucial skills to form and lead teams to high performance. Multi-disciplinary, multi-functional, multi-national and virtual teams are rapidly growing in importance in 21st century organisations. The course draws upon well-validated frameworks and tools to help learners implement new, practically-oriented ways of leading and inspiring people in work teams. Theories and frameworks come from psychology, leadership, management and validated consulting practices.

Psychometric instruments will be used to provide feedback on individual and team effectiveness. This feedback on the key behavioural competencies will map on to topics covered during the course. Utilising the feedback, you will develop and apply skills for facilitation, providing constructive feedback, coaching others, managing performance, using conflict constructively, thinking creatively and achieving high performance in face-to-face and virtual teams.

You will learn how to create and sustain team momentum and build a culture of achievement and accountability in delivering effective team outcomes.
