Building High Performance Teams

Duration : 2 days 

People Management Mastery that Drives High Team Performance, Maximum Efficiency and Great Results




Leaders and managers at all levels in the organization that want to improve their teambuilding competency so that they can get the very best results from their leadership, teams and colleagues in pursuit of the organization’s goals and maximum business growth.




High performance teams are required to drive business growth in today’s complex, highly competitive environment. Mastery of teambuilding is vital for effective leader and leadership and driving positive business growth.


Building a High Performance Team is an exciting new approach to teambuilding that introduces the six levers of a high performance team. The program also includes a teambuilding exercise called “Takeoff for Teams” that weaves the traditional knowledge development sessions with interactive and competitive simulation rounds for practice and discovery in a way that provides actionable insights into how new knowledge and skills learned will be used on the job. The program takes a holistic view of teambuilding and introduces the delegate to the knowledge, skills and attitude required to deliver high performance teamwork.


The program is a well-researched knowledge-based and designed with the individual learner at the centre of the learning process which means that the course is extremely interactive and practical.




By the end of this course delegates will be able to:


✓ Determine team, team leadership and the value of a team

✓ Determine the teambuilding process and how to systematically build high performance

✓ Determine the need to measure for correction and control

✓ Develop key teambuilding skills

✓ Practice new knowledge learnt before returning to work

✓ Produce drive to self-develop in teambuilding

✓ Produce positive impact on the overall performance of each delegate and the organization
