Course Outline / Curriculum

There are seven modules covering the following objectives:

  • Explaining the purpose of a team
  • Contracting with a team to obtain commitment
  • Monitor the achievement of team objectives
  • Plan, organise and allocate work
  • Manage interpersonal team processes to achieve required outputs
  • Evaluate achievement of work unit objectives

In between, we weave in essential skills and knowledge in leadership, both self management skills such as setting effective goals and planning using an urgent-important matrix, and team management skills.

If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with some contact time with the trainer.
