Creating High Performance Teams


high performance team

Creating effective teams is becoming more and more important as an organisational asset because tasks being done require multiple skills and experience. Teams must also be adaptable to the changing environment. Work places that exemplify teamwork have differentiated themselves. Our institutions such as schools, our family structures, companies, and our pastimes emphasise working together but many times, this doesn't happen. In effect, efficiency suffers.

Organisations have been working with people who are diverse with regards to their ideas, backgrounds and experiences. It is possible, however, to create a culture with great teamwork by doing just a few things right. With commitment and appreciation for a common goal and corresponding behaviors, you can create an overall sense of teamwork in your organisation.

In this highly interactive session, teams will participate in discussions, cases and activities which require team communication, co-operation and problem solving. They will get the opportunity to see the importance of seeing "the big picture". The purpose of the session is to foster a sense of empathy and respect for other team members and to build a sense of community that, when properly accomplished, will translate effectively back to the work environment.
