Format availability:



5 Days

Introduction to the course

A lot of focus is put on leadership development when in reality, the leader is just one person, the real driving force behind a leader’s success is their team. A team operating effectively as a single unit will consistently outperform the best individuals acting on their own. More importantly, no matter how knowledgeable and competent individual team members may be, a dysfunctional team will undermine organisational goals, drain morale and waste effort.

With the increased commercial pressures and target driven cultures, many leaders are now considering how to get the highest levels of performance from their people. The most critical factor in driving effective teamwork and team engagement is the behaviour and style of the leader. This KC ACADEMY Leading High Performing Teams training seminar explains how to harness the team’s potential and introduces techniques for moving the team to peak performance. This KC ACADEMY Management & Leadership training seminar is highly interactive, and participants are expected to discuss their unique situation and practice the tools they are learning.

Highlights include:

  • Discovering the link between the leader’s behaviour and team performance
  • Finding new ways to measure and manage performance
  • Unique techniques to truly tap into motivation
  • Harnessing the dynamics of the group through personality profiling
