About the course
Teams are at the heart of organisational life and their effectiveness strongly influences the success of the enterprise overall. A high performance team will exceed expectations given their composition. Therefore achieving superior performance in teams has become a major business imperative. But turning individuals into a cohesive and productive team is far from straightforward.
This two-day, well-established, intense and practical programme will examine:
- The key elements of a high-performance team, drawing on examples from corporations, not-for-profits, consultancies and sport
- Team roles and responsibilities, dynamics, and outcomes
- Personality types that make up a high-performance team
- Dealing with conflict and coping with difficult team members.
Cambridge Judge Business School offers a distinctive approach born out of the University of Cambridge way.
