Course overview

When teams are formed properly, it offers so many opportunities for success.

Greater productivity will be achieved by boosting output, reducing waste, and maximizing profits.

However, a lot of teams are not set up correctly.

And, this course is designed to target this issue.

Course participants will learn key insights, uncover models of teamwork, and explore the world of high-performance teams.

The course is for people serious about developing their teamwork and team-building skills, and who are ready to bring their learning to the next level.

Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 4 key sections of this training course.

1. What is a team?

Start by focusing on your audience’s understanding of teamwork.

Encourage them to think differently about team-building skills.

This will ensure that your audience feels more connected to the course content provided. And, how they can build more practical skills.

This is where it gets interesting.

  • Explain the differences between working within a group and teamwork.
  • Examine types of team structures and teamwork.
  • Understand the differences within these structures.
  • Focus on the stages of team formation – a key part of understanding group dynamics

The idea here is to introduce the “aspects” that offer value to your audience. The more you can break this value down, the better.

To illustrate, what makes people interested in team-working?

The answer is quite simple. People get interested in things when they make a difference in their lives.

So remember, your audience will be asking:

“Does this content make a difference to me?”

“Will it help me?”

“How can I use this in my life?”

Basically, your audience will want content that really resonates with their lives.

Continue by using the content to look at things like:

  • The roles and responsibilities that can exist.
  • Team-building skills and work structures.
  • The impact of ambiguity and interdependence.

2. Focus on models of team working

Up to now, the content focuses on what is a team and sharing this value with your audience.

Next, you can use the content provided to:

  • Discuss aspects prohibiting successful team-working skills.
  • Explore team balance and autonomy, levels of communication, and media available.

3. Introduce your audience to the world of high-performance teams

Tired of hearing about “high-performance teams?”

You know the feeling when you hear people singing the merits of high-performing teams?

Yet, no one tells you how to get there.

Well, this section cuts straight to the heart of high-performance teams.

Step by step, you can use the content to:

  • Discuss how to maintain a high-performance team.
  • Explore how to overcome low performance.
  • Examine factors like motivation, diversity, and leadership.

One of the most powerful ways to support this part of the course is to share your own reflections on high-performing teams.

4. Learning how to manage expectations

When it comes to managing expectations, start by putting yourself in the shoes of your audience.

What kind of teams are they used to?

What team-building experience do they have?

What questions do they need to be answered?

To manage expectations, use the content to explore conflict management skills and how to lead a high-performance team.
