Why You Should Attend This Course

Recent studies are clear that for teams to perform at their best, leaders need to invest time and energy in building deeply engaged teams. A deeply engaged team can accomplish much more than the sum of its parts and this has a positive impact on productivity, business outcomes and profitability.

To build and manage such teams, leaders need to focus not only on the brain (tools, processes, etc) but also the heart of the business (their people). Leaders need to collaborate with their team members to create a culture that promotes meaningful connections as well as the desired mindset and behaviours for individual and team success.

Through this light-hearted and interactive workshop based on the Engage & Grow Group Activation SystemTM, you will uncover and learn what you can do to be an even more effective leader. You will also learn how to elevate your team to becoming more engaged, fun and productive team so as to have a positive impact on business outcomes.
