It’s amazing what you can achieve within a training session when you get the right content. If you’ve ever delivered a successful presentation, you’ll know what we mean.

Armed with our Powerpoint presentation slide decks, participant manuals, exercises, and some great expert guides, we’ve managed to pack a lot of great content into a course package that’s practical enough to be easy to present.

We’ve broken the content down into 6 key steps.

1. Introduction to group dynamics

Want your audience to be inspired by your group dynamics skills training courses?

Then, use the course content below to ensure that your presentations are strong, compelling, and practical.

We want you to share key areas, to provide practical, awareness-building, and useful content — content that fits what your audience is looking for.

To make your presentation stronger, use the content provided to:

  • Present a definition of group dynamics.
  • Explore the different types of groups that can exist in the workplace.

Want your audience to also work more cohesively?

Start with understanding your audience.

Imagine what it is like to be them. Understand what makes them need this course. And, know exactly what stops them from working more cohesively.

At that point, you will meet their needs with this content.

Share the types of group dynamics that can exist within their workgroups. This will make your audience feel more connected. They’ll generate more awareness. It will show them what to do next, how they can learn more about group dynamics, develop more understanding, and build more practical skills.

2. Focus on performance factors

You might think performance factors are challenging to explore.

But that’s not true.

To help you find that right balance, and still get all of your information across, use the content to discuss group performance factors. These include norms, size, composition, and how factors may help your audience.

This allows your audience to better understand group dynamics and feel more connected to the skills required.

Next, use the content to highlight:

  • Investigation.
  • Socialization.
  • Maintenance.
  • Resocialization.
  • Remembrance.

To foster more engagement, incorporate examples from your own experiences within groups.

End this section by exploring the phases of group socialization.

3. Teach your audience about group cohesiveness

When people talk about group cohesiveness, they often refer to teamwork, communication, or even leadership.

You can dive deeper and deeper into the material, and share the factors and consequences of group cohesiveness.

4. How you can make group communication easier

Behind every successful group is great communication, and sharing this benefit makes the course more interesting.

Don’t want to sound obvious?

Start by focusing on the different types of communication that can exist within groups.

Add an element of personal experiences to your presentation.

You’ve probably have heard this before. But, it’s important.

Because it helps you form connections with your audience. And it makes your courses more unique from other training courses.

5. Understanding the main stages of team development

To improve your presentation, use the content to outline teambuilding skills and the stages of team development.

A clear discussion of forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning helps you connect with your audience and stay on topic. This also ensures that you get recognized by your audience for your expertize.

What’s more, a good discussion on these areas will demonstrate that you are there to help them. And, this generates better levels of audience participation.

6. Focus on management team roles

Want to keep your audience connected to the content?

Start with putting yourself into the minds of your audience, and consider how you’re encouraging them to focus on management team roles.
