Effective Workplace Teams

The importance of, team working has grown over recent years.  Whilst there once was an emphasis in organisations on roles being well-defined and having a clear delineation of duties with contemporary advances in working practices employers have placed an increasing interest in high-performance or high-commitment which has led to a focus on team working.

This module aims to extend participants' experience and understanding of team development, group processes, team roles and dynamics.  It also explores the concept of different types of teams, the notion of cohesiveness and attributes of highly effective teams. 

The module will be of interest to anyone who is in a workplace team and or those who are interested in the development of any form of workplace team, not only the traditional team but those with a shorter life span such as project teams or multi-agency teams.

Available at all levels.  This module may be studied either through workshop attendance or distance study.
