Leading High Performance Teams

Engaging your team for top results

Organizations continue to shed traditional hierarchies in favour of empowered work teams. This program equips leaders with the concepts and tools they need to build high-performance teams that are engaged, purposeful, inspired and customer centric.

The interactive, hands-on format is specifically designed to provide a wide variety of real-world skills that can be applied immediately back at work. 

This workshop is for line/department managers, team leaders and others with responsibilities for creating a culture of continuous improvement. Those with fewer than five years of on-the-job experience will particularly benefit from attending.

  • Lead your team to higher levels of performance and personal satisfaction
  • Engage team talent for better results and a stronger organization
  • Transform your measurement system to improve accountability, ownership and performance
  • Develop a sense of team commitment and foster a culture that nurtures innovation and change
  • Inspire “healthy conflict” that brings team members together
  • Maximize the potential of team members, and ensure that the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts

The Process

  • Selecting the best team structure for your circumstances
  • Leadership tools for delegating, motivating and empowering others to maximize potential 
  • Increasing team participation and making better group decisions 
  • Running meetings that serve their true purpose of accelerating productivity

The People

  • Dealing with stress and ambiguity – for yourself, as well as for others
  • Identifying, building and engaging talent through effective coaching
  • Deepening relationships and improving performance through active listening and targeted feedback
  • Building consensus and loyalty by establishing rapport and reading situations with higher emotional intelligence

The Problems

  • Dealing with naysayers and low morale
  • Managing change as smoothly as possible
