Building the High-Performance Team (HPT) programme will enable your delegates to make the successful transition to team leaders. Our 6-day programme takes place over 3 modules blended with online materials. Key elements of the programme are:
- Diagnostic tools to understand personal preferences and how to manage differences in the team
- Interactive case studies and scenarios to bring leadership challenges to life
- Team projects analysing real-life internal performance issues
- Tools to help leaders operate effectively under pressure
- A personal development action plan with coaching support
- A methodology to accelerate performance through learning from experience
We will tailor your HPT programme to align with your organisation’s existing development and competency frameworks.
At the end of the programme your team leaders will have:
- Increased self-awareness of own preferences, leadership style and impact on others
- Ability to instil shared values in the team through personal example
- Confidence and knowhow to deal with leadership challenges within their teams
- Tools to set teams up for success
- Improved resilience and ability to manage self and others under pressure
- Positive ownership of a personal development action plan
- A supportive network of peers across the organisation
The HPT programme is a new programme for Winter 17/18, developed in response to client feedback from other programmes indicated a gap in new managers’ capabilities. Often, team members were promoted for technical or functional expertise, without any experience or training in being an effective team leader.
