Team Development Program

The Team Development Program consists of three courses that are offered in the Executive Management Program; Motivating Others to Drive the Right Results, Shepherding Change through Conflict and Challenging Conversations and The Anatomy of a Team. Upon completion of these three courses, you will receive a Certificate of Attendance in the Team Development Program. You also have the option to choose two additional courses offered in the Executive Management program to receive the Certificate of Completion.

Each one day program is designed for mid to senior level managers and provides participants with a toolkit of resources that are applicable and relevant. Whether you have completed your MBA and are looking to update your skills, or want to further your career without committing to a full MBA program, this program will help take you to the next level.

There are no prerequisite requirements to enrol in this program.

Motivating for Results

In today’s hyper-competitive market with increasing demands on organizations and employees to do more with less, it has become imperative to engage and motivate talent to drive the right results. The art and science of motivating employees and teams to achieve the right results is critical to short and long term organizational success. To be able to effectively motivate and engage individuals and teams, to achieve organizational and personal goals, managers need to have an understanding of various aspects of human behaviour and motivational needs.

This one-day workshop is designed to teach professionals, managers and leaders how to ignite high levels of sustained energy in individuals and teams to achieve desired results.

Accelerating Team Results Through Difficult Conversations

From petty office politics, to underhanded power moves, to shirking teammates, to lack of trust and collaboration, the office environment can be like a Petri Dish designed to breed conflict. And conflict comes at a high cost. For employees, that cost is wasted time and unhappiness, often leading to poor morale and productivity – often leading to unwarranted sick leaves and resignations. For organizations, workplace conflicts cost hundreds of billions of dollars.

So what can you do to reclaim your sanity, lower stress and help foster an environment where conflict is less likely to happen in the first place? It starts with understanding your contribution to workplace trust and collaboration, either for yourself or your team members, so that you all work towards the right results.

Team Performance: Empowering Individuals for Success

It’s no wonder staff spend up to 50% of their time working in teams! Research shows that organizations utilize team structures over 75% of the time to handle special projects, manage departments, and for internal systems, customer service and product innovation. Based on these statistics, we could state that teams have become the “brains” of organizations.

Successful leaders know the anatomy of a “team brain.” They develop individual “lobes” in order to create balance, integrate the functioning of individual “lobes” to create cohesion and harness differences to enhance innovation.
