High Performance Team Member

This workshop is designed to provide a high degree of awareness about what it takes to play a constructive role as a member of a high-performing team. Special emphasis is placed on the interpersonal skills that team members need, for example advocacy, listening and conflict resolution. The workshop is based on Patrick Lencioni’s 5-step framework that includes the practices of building trust, resolving conflict, developing commitment, holding team members accountable and achieving results. Other aspects such as the stages of team development and participation in team meetings are also explored.

Self-awareness and skill development are brought alive through an interactive simulation that exposes the typical challenges faced by teams.
