Building and Managing High Performance Teams

This three part webinar series explores the activities required to develop a high-performance work team, the common stages of team development and the impact of your management style on the team. It also explores the causes of team dysfunction and how to deal with conflict within your team.

Organisations which have put the concept of ‘high performing teams’ into practice succeed through creating dynamic, autonomous and highly focused teams which pass the test of time. High performing teams do not happen by chance but are the result of good management, planned development and open communication. To manage and maximise the talent within a team requires more than technical expertise. To achieve your business goals as a manager you must be able to inspire and lead your team by driving performance, engagement and flexibility. Building and maintaining a high-performance team is not an event it is an ongoing business process.
