Leading High Performance Teams

View booking options


The content is suitable for recently appointed or more experienced managers and supervisors,  as well as senior professionals managing teams across a matrix. The focus is on the underlying people dynamics within teams, and delegates will gain a deeper understanding of what motivates individuals and the role that they as leaders can play in shaping the environment in which high performing teams can develop.

The Insights Discovery profile is a key tool used in the workshop to help classify self and co-workers, and to accurately define practical techniques for leading them.

The workshop is a full day, with a small amount of preparatory work.  Several short inputs, discussions and practical activities form the day, culminating in an action planning session.  Content is drawn from a variety of sources, including Jungian psychology and the Insights Discovery psychometric.

    Really enjoyed this highly practical and well delivered class.
