BUILDING HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAMS
A team is a group of people linked by a common purpose. However, a team does not automatically form. It must be built to ensure that all the members develop effective relationships and coordinate their actions. This allows them to get into the ‘team zone’ together.
In this session, speaker John Farrer will help us to understand that it is teamwork that wins games, as seen on the sports field. And in organisations, the same is true; effective performance depends on effective teamwork, whether in a management team, a project team or a service delivery team.
Key take aways:
- You will have the opportunity to experience team working directly together before considering some of the key research findings about how to build this elusive thing - a high performing team.
- By relating theory to practice, there will be many insights and ‘ah-ha’ moments, and members will return to their organisations motivated and with some specific actions as to how to build the team they lead or are part of.
