This intensive, three-day advanced skills course — Trainers of Team Building: Developing High Performance Teams? – will empower workplace leaders to take their teams to the next level. Learners will really get to know their teams, define different team types, improve teamwork by thoroughly understanding and applying the characteristics of effective teams, and much more. The result will be a leader who employs practical, tested techniques that develop trust and rapport, who is able to push their team forward, beyond average engagement levels and into superior performance results. We have included advanced sessions on dealing with conflict, and understanding how action planning and analysis will help teams to achieve better results.
Trainers will benefit from a content-rich training package, including a detailed instructor guide, student workbook, step-by-step activities, and pre-formatted slides. These training materials can be customized in just as much time as it takes to make changes to any Word or PowerPoint document, whether you want to enhance training by creating case studies specific to a particular group, or grow your own brand.
