HIGH PERFORMING TEAM
Workshop 

 

HIGH PERFORMING TEAM workshop

what is a high performing team?

A high performing team is a team that consistently meets or exceeds expectations. Such a team is able to effectively set goals, make decisions, communicate, manage conflict and solve problems in a supportive and trusting atmosphere (Dyer et al., 2007; Murray, 2012).

Success is not measured by the individual performance of the team members but by the results achieved by the team as a whole.

why does a high performing team make a difference?

Today's working world is dominated by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA). In 2023, this picture can be more than confirmed: a pandemic including compulsory home office, the return to the office, hybrid ways of working, a war of aggression in Europe, and the energy crisis keep us humans and the working world on our toes. The (working) world is undergoing drastic change and presents companies and employees with the challenge of adapting to new circumstances. One approach to a company's success is the development of a high performing culture. With our workshop format, we focus on the development of high performing teams.

what do we offer

We offer a High Performing Team workshop with a suitable mix of theory, practical examples and direct testing of the tools. Working in small groups creates the space for exchange. At the end of the workshop, the knowledge gained from theory and practice is poured into an individual action plan.
