Most of us say we work in teams, fewer of us know how to make teams work well. While we naturally work in teams to achieve things we can’t do alone, working well together in them doesn’t come so naturally. We have to learn how to do this…

Team-working skills are vital for everyone. Without team-building skills, many people bumble along, making the same old avoidable errors that get teams in a tangle. The ability to mobilise cohesive teams and get people to work in well with each other is an absolute necessity for all leaders. Getting clear on what it takes to work well in teams makes a big difference to people fitting in and getting along. 

To stay in top gear, teams need some fine-tuning, maintenance or even, from time to time, a total makeover.  That’s where our Building Better Teams clinic comes in...

“Thoroughly enjoyed this great workshop. It’s already started to achieve a better working environment. The structure was well planned and the content all related specifically to our working together needs. Bill did a fantastic job getting people to open up, feel comfortable and raise work issues over the 2 days.” Larissa Payne – Latrobe University

Building Better Teams is a 2-day toolkit clinic that explores the art of working better together in teams.  Whether you’re tuning an existing team or starting one from scratch, it covers key design dimensions and tools to form teams, facilitate them to work collaboratively, get commitment to common goals, create cohesion and rethink how your team works together. Attend this energising, uplifting clinic and learn how to.....

“Well worth attending. The structure was quite practical and the workshop had variety. Life would be so much better if more leaders and teams adopted these concepts to understand the people we deal with. The more people who are aware of these concepts, the better.” Ron Zahner - Queensland Health

Course Features: Work through key steps, issues and choices critical to forming and sustaining successful teams. Analyse the way your team works now using our Team Functionality Dimensions.

Is this right for you? This clinic can benefit anyone who leads teams – from director level down – who wants to work on developing shared visions, new team designs, operating principles, workroles and decision-making practices. It’s also useful if you’re looking to learn how to plan and facilitate teambuilding sessions or reform and revitalise teams...

“A very engaging workshop, really well constructed with constant involvement of so many great activities to help us understand issues we need to work on as a team. You were very captivating and it was a great opportunity to talk about how we function, focus on real issues in our team and then apply tools we’d just discussed to these situations. Thank you again for your fantastic workshop. I thoroughly enjoyed it.” Vanessa Moulday - Latrobe University
