Course No. ML17

Course Introduction

Some groups work together like a well-oiled machine while others grind and creak along with frequent explosions and clashes, sometimes juddering to a complete halt and often running at much less than their potential capacity. Why are they different? Does it matter? Research into teams and groups invariably shows that organisations benefit in many ways when managers know how to encourage effective team working:

  • greater productivity
  • efficient use of time
  • effective use of human resources
  • reduced stress-related absenteeism
  • increased flexibility and innovation

Course Objectives

Participants are introduced to the various roles that individuals play in a group and the positive benefits available from taking these into consideration. Case studies and group-work bring about good assimilation of principles presented by facilitator.

Target Audience

Directors, executives, line managers, professionals, project managers, supervisors.
