Leading High Performing Teams


No matter how knowledgeable and competent its individual members may be, a dysfunctional team will undermine organisational goals, sap morale and waste effort. This seminar focuses on the critical roles of team leader and middle manager in harnessing their team’s potential, and introduces and practises techniques for moving the team to peak performance.

Highlights include:

  • Understanding the role of the leader in team performance.
  • Measuring and managing performance.
  • Creating a shared team vision.
  • Harnessing the dynamics of the team.
  • Optimising team flexibility and commitment.


  • Understanding your role as a leader.
  • Identifying and leveraging talent within the team.
  • Engaging and motivating the team with shared vision and values.
  • Establishing clear objectives and standards of performance for your team.
  • Measuring and managing team performance.
  • Managing and using conflict and challenge.

Training Methodology:

The seminar uses a range of approaches to learning, including experiential group activities, individual exercises, mini-case studies, role plays and syndicate discussions. Formal inputs are used to introduce underpinning theory. A key part of the learning process is sharing the differing experiences participants bring, as well as experimenting with novel – and sometimes challenging – techniques. A psychometric instrument will be used to generate a personality profile, which will contribute to your understanding of your preferences and personal style.

Organisational Impact:

Team leaders and managers who have shared and practised different ways of performing the key leadership functions offer increased self-awareness, flexibility and confidence. They are better able to stand back from the everyday detail and focus on longer-term organisational and team needs, and can devote more time to investing in future capability.

Personal Impact:

Participants will be exposed to a range of different approaches to leadership practice, allowing them to select those most suitable for their team’s requirements and the changing situations they together face. The opportunity to share experiences with fellow participants and experiment with new techniques in the safety of the training room will provide a broad spectrum of perspectives.
