How efficient is your team? Is it operating to its full potential, and what can you do to improve it?

Whether you play a strong team role or lead a creative team, how often do you stop and evaluate your own part, and your day-to-day experience to assess where performance could improve?

To be part of a team that produces the absolute best work, you need to work within your team in a dynamic way that enables it to function at the highest level.

At this half-day workshop with creative business expert Emma Collins, you’ll explore the essential workings of an effective team, what makes a great team tick and how to make it happen.

This workshop will cover:

  • The key stages of team formation and main characteristics of high performance teams.
  • The differences between a group and a team.
  • What makes a high performance team excel.

  • Key behaviours that create group emotional intelligence.
  • Valuing and understanding individual differences.
  • Common goals and shared purpose:
  • Why teams without purpose and direction flounder.
  • Aligning values and motivations.
  • The importance of shared learning and celebration.

You’ll walk away with the ability to:

  • Evaluate the dynamics and effectiveness of your team.
  • Increase your own performance and effect within your team.
  • Understand the type of environment and culture you need for high-performance.
  • Understand the different personalities in your team and how you can work well together.
