Developing and leading a great team

Successful professional service firms are a myriad of overlapping teams (client teams, practice groups, offices, sectors, projects) meaning that a ‘command and control’ approach does not work. Instead, professional leaders at every level need to be adept at quickly forging teams with a clear focus.

• How to engender the essential elements that define great teamwork:

o A clear sense of common purpose and shared values to which people are committed

o Having people play to their complementary strengths

o Open and honest communication

 

• What great leaders do (and don’t do) to create a high-performance culture

 

• The main stages of teamwork and how to quickly progress your team through them

 

• Leadership vs management and four leadership styles you may need to master to meet the needs of the team

 

• Behaviours you should not tolerate within the team and how to deal with team conflict

 

• Formats for effective team meetings and other ways to ensure good communication.
