Team Building & Interpersonal Style
To succeed in today’s competitive business environment, organizations need to capitalize on their work group diversity and address any and all issues related to effectively working together.
Teamwork is an important way to get things done in an environment that is more and more demanding and challenging. By working together toward team goals and sharing the contributions of each team member, you will be able to achieve more together than on your own.
Understanding your own and others’ interpersonal style, which includes conflict style, is an important foundation for developing positive and productive relationships, and is largely measured by how that person's behaviour is perceived by others. By understanding your interpersonal style and behaviour patterns, and how these influence your workplace performance, you can become a better team play.
The Performance Group’s approach to team building and interpersonal style workshops has been designed to identify the skills required to capitalize upon the diverse talents of all the employees within the organization and assist teams in their team building efforts, while improving communication skills and finding opportunity in conflict.
