Team Leadership is always going to be a major challenge, yet by undertaking a team development workshop with Martin Smith Learning and Development we can help you to focus on the areas of your team where you can gain maximum performance improvements and benefits.
It could be that you want to:
- Define and understand your team identity and agree your purpose
- Get to know and understand each other better
- Improve your team communication
- Define new ways of working together
- Focus on a particular problem or issue that you face as a team
Whatever your reason for wanting a team development workshop, Martin Smith Learning and Development can help.
We start the process by listening carefully to your needs and then working in partnership with you to design and deliver an informal or a fully structured workshop. This can be based around achieving your objectives and meeting your needs through the use of a range of experiential learning activities, group discussion and self-exploration techniques.
A team development workshop enables team members to identify behaviours and actions which enhance or inhibit team performance. We then formulate a critical change process by identifying alternative, more productive behaviours and ways of working. This results in the performance of the team becoming more focused, more effective and ultimately more powerful.
Your team workshop will be intentionally structured to deliver lasting benefits, rather than short-term fixes. We’ll need your input, particularly at the early planning stage, to define the issues important to you and your desired business outcomes.
Focus areas might include:
- Improving communication
- Enhancing emotional intelligence
- Crisis management and handling conflict
- Problem solving
- Understanding and overcoming the barriers to change
- Building a new team
- Improving productivity
- Encouraging teamwork
- Building Leadership
Who is this for?
- Newly formed teams.
- Teams where there has been a change in Leadership
- Temporary teams, for example project teams.
- Teams with new members recently joining or new managers/leaders.
- Existing teams where there is a new direction/purpose or where there are clearly defined team development needs.
