Leading High Performance Teams

Task and People Skills for Middle Managers


Specially designed for those leading larger teams where understanding people and team synergy is key to business success 

Uses the MBTI® to raise self awareness and awareness of others

This 2-module programme enables middle managers to become highly effective team leaders. It uses a model for building high performance teams based on the following 5 areas of team development: 

Interpersonal relationships – which build team synergy 

Talented members – who feel confident and competent to contribute 

Clear responsibilities – so that everyone knows what to do 

Effective operating procedures – so time is used effectively

Reinforcement systems – so people feel good about high performance teams 
  
Middle managers need to be confident about their leadership style. This means being aware of themselves and the natural gifts they bring to leadership. They also need to learn how to adapt their style for situational leadership. Participants will learn how to produce outcomes in these areas and use check lists to ensure that they take these skills back to their team in the workplace.
