Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Workshop summary

The experience of working within a team - or managing and leading a team - can be fraught with unnecessary difficulty. However there are many practical ways to ease this process. This 1-day course allows individuals to understand their personal working preferences and those of fellow team members underpinned by the DiSC® behavioural framework. It forms the basis for setting clear expectations, agreeing targets and deliverables, getting stakeholders and team-members onboard, and communicating developments and changes appropriately: techniques that can make both the personal and team experience more effective and enjoyable.

During this 1-day course, participants will explore the following:

• What Makes a Team?
• Improving Team Dynamics
• Avoiding Conflict
• Team Vision and Keeping on Track
