 Accelerated Team Development 

  Course Code - MF-101   Duration - 2 Days   

We are all complex and challenging individuals with our own personalities, ambitions, goals objectives and agendas. In a team environment we become even more complex and challenging. 

Why is it then that we put a number of people together in a 'team', assign a leader and assume that they will work effectively together? 

How do successful teams come together quickly and gel into an extremely productive focused unit that operates as one and produces effective results? Is it just co-incidence or can it be systematically reproduced?

The Accelerated Team Development workshop is a powerful process for  developing productive, focused, motivated and results-based teams.

This two-day workshop brings teams together to use powerful creative problem solving and idea generation techniques in a controlled and managed way. 

Participants will experience new techniques for converting 'good ideas' into tangible outcomes. Each team will learn how they can operate as innovative individuals and as an effective team unit.

 
   

 Objectives
