Description:
In most organisations people are concerned with building the team, working as a team, and my team, but few team leaders really understand how to create the experience of team work or how to develop an effective team. The skill of the team leader is to use a blend of authority and freedom in order to increase individual and collective ownership and productivity. This workshop will refresh the skills of existing team leaders or managers to improve the capacity of the team to deliver the desired levels of performance.
