Generally, team building is mainly associated with the initial stage of creating a team and putting a number of people together to achieve an objective. Team building therefor consists of many management techniques as well as attending team building events for a shared experience which help bring a team together.
However, as a team matures, a team leader should be on the lookout for new potentially damaging developments. For example, research shows that team members can develop a tendency to agree with each other on everything as a way to avoid confrontation. This constant agreement can then lead to poor decision making because no one is willing to highlight the obvious issue.
This course is designed to cover such areas and help managers stay in control of their team. Many times, awareness of an effect is enough to help a leader make the right decisions when managing a team. As a result we have included many engaging stories and case studies to help leaders learn about various management effects and also help them remember the guidelines.
The course contains a variety of exercises to help delegates learn the techniques by applying them directly to a realistic case. These are then followed by group discussions as delegates are encouraged to share their experiences.
