A 2-day hands-on, interactive course that enables participants to understand, develop, and practice real skills in working in teams. This course focuses on self-awareness, hands-on exercises, role plays and teamwork. It is suited to all team members.
Participants walk away with the skills, tools and techniques to successfully coach their team members towards improved and desirable behaviours, and to enable them to act as Mentors for colleagues and newer team members.
Training is done in small sub-groups of 4 people, in two sessions of 3-4 hours each. Each group has one computer with the project management simulation program. The simulator confronts the groups with situations very different in nature and often requiring quick decisions. The participants thus learn how to work and make decisions as a team.
