Managing and Developing Successful Teams

Using practical exercises, delegates will identify strategies and approaches to equip their teams with the skills and capabilities to optimise productivity and performance, and deliver high-quality results.

Our training courses are currently being delivered in a live, virtual, interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is facilitated by experienced subject experts.

Course Context

Inspired and cohesive teams who work together can deliver results and services faster, better and more cost effectively. In this course, delegates gain the skills and knowledge to structure, measure and tune performance in their team environments.

An awareness of the characteristics of effective teams will be increased by attending this course, together with the importance of individual roles and styles and their impact on team performance and culture. Stages of team development are considered, as well as strategies and approaches to build teams to maximise overall performance. During the day, the factors which influence performance from a task, team and individual perspective are also identified.


Duration: 1-day face-to-face course or virtually over two shorter sessions.  

Format: Virtual, live, interactive session or face-to-face where possible.
