Teamwork, so powerful, yet so rare!


About this course

Leaders throughout the world of business will be able to recall numerous times where teams of strong individuals have struggled to pull together in synergy.

Company politics, internal competition, disagreements, things left unsaid, or things that should have been left unsaid – whatever reasons apply, there is undoubtedly a large amount of untapped potential in teams in the business environment.

Patrick Lencioni, author of “The Advantage: Why Organisational Health Trumps everything else in business” sums this up succinctly.

“Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare.”

Think about it for a second. Have you ever…

  • Left a meeting where everyone seemed to agree, but then action wasn’t taken?
  • Watched teams make slow or no decisions by struggling to gain consensus?
  • Witnessed individual team members become defensive or aggressive?
  • Had projects incomplete because ownership fell across members of the group?
  • Seen actions on the minutes of the last meeting left undone, and simply added to the minutes for review next time?

If any of these resonate, you’ll recognise why business leaders have a massive opportunity to enhance effectiveness in teams, increasing the strength of decision making and ultimately business results, whilst enhancing leadership ability and self-awareness.

The session will help attendees to:

  • Reflect on what makes great teams
  • Recognise why communication not content creates performance
  • Understand key steps to take to shape team unity
  • Develop their thinking on enhancing team synergy and effectiveness
  • Make teamwork fun and energised as well as productive.

Effective meetings save time, create efficiency, hold people accountable and deliver greater efficiencies into a business.

The session will be interactive, fun and thought provoking, with learning from one another positively encouraged, and with everyone coming away with knowledge which can be immediately applied to further releasing the potential that teams already own.
