Developing High Performing Teams

Engineering context

High performance leadership is a desired outcome for every good business and project leader. Organisations demand high performance leadership to ensure profit margins are maintained and key personnel are retained and grow in their roles. Unfortunately, however, teams are not consistently producing the expected outcomes across the board. 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 course will develop the skills required to drive team performance and explore the differences between underperforming and high performing teams. Participants will learn the key characteristics of high performance, the role of culture and communication in team behaviour, and how to create environments that focus on the success of the team, rather than the individual.

Upon completion, you will 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, positivity and commitment in teams and develop a team performance plan.
