Program Description

Title

Creating ‘A’ Teams

Description

This program develops the skills needed to work more effectively in teams. It uses a DISC based behaviour profiling tool to provide participants with a framework through which to consider how people interact with each other. This helps develop an understanding of the dynamics of behavioural interaction within teams, departments or groups of people who have a need or desire to work more effectively.

The main focus in this course is on techniques and processes required to increase team productivity, service quality and morale through increased participation by team members. The course is a combination of both indoor and outdoor activities selected to suit specific customer needs and circumstances.
