Building High Performing Teams Workshop

The Building High Performing Teams Workshop is an immersive training and learning experience that covers how to build, sustain, and lead high-performing teams that effectively deliver while dealing with the constantly changing dynamics in today’s world of work.

This workshop helps leaders understand how their natural dispositions might affect their team and how to influence the workplace empowering teams to thrive. Leaders will learn how to grow high-performing teams and create a safe-to-fail environment while fostering a culture of transparency, inspection, and adaptation to allow for experimentation and continuous learning within their teams.

Participants will leave this workshop with the knowledge and tools to understand and assess complex team dynamics and apply team development models like Tuckman and Drexler/Sibbet to help them align teams around a common purpose, build mutual respect and trust, and get teams started off on the right track. Participants will learn techniques to improve team communication and collaboration, minimize conflict, and guide teams to overcome their weaknesses while leveraging their strength to build and sustain high-performing teams that continuously deliver value and delight their customers.

This workshop is part our 3-part leadership development workshop program that includes Developing Future Leaders, Building High Performing Teams, and Leading Organizational Change, and can be combined with the Leadership Agility 360 assessment and coaching program to help leaders identify their current default style and coach them in developing a path to become more aware and competent in the other styles.
