Looking to build an effective team for your organization?

TrainSMART has just the solution for you! Our Managing and Building Effective Teams workshop is designed to help all employees achieve the organization’s goals by working together effectively and efficiently.

We understand that some teams work well while others fall apart. That’s why we define the foundational needs for teams to work effectively and create opportunities for building a team focus. We recognize the group dynamics that are the foundation for improving performance and assess strategy to make decisions.

Our building effective teams training workshop helps identify how the team values recognition, cohesiveness, role clarity, participation, and conflict management, and utilizes creative team development strategies. Whether you are new to a team or department or have been “at it” for a while, our team effectiveness principles are transferable to all work.

Our course outline includes an opening activity, leadership assessment diagnostic, team activity, team development questionnaire, and team development plan (TDP) tool. Our workshop is designed to help participants self-assess their leadership focus in terms of team development based on five leadership team functions.
