Leading High Performing Teams

Engineering context

Organisations are increasingly reliant on the skills of specialist teams to connect and support the executive strategy and other corporate structures. However, teams are not consistently producing expected outcomes. Therefore, organisations need to critically understand the issues preventing teams from being responsive to their environment as well as the financial and cultural implications.

This one-day course will explore the differences between underperforming and high performing teams. You'll learn the key characteristics of a high performing team, the role of culture in team behaviour, and how to create environments that focus on the success of the team over the individual.

Upon completion, you'll be able to assess how your team performs and the key focus areas for improvement. You'll also be able to build the critical enablers of trust and commitment in teams and develop a team performance plan.

Prior to the commencement of the course, you will be expected to complete a pre-course exercise.
