Building Better Teams

This is a highly interactive workshop for team leaders and supervisors designed to build on new or existing teams and to give a fresh outlook on the concepts and practices of team building.

Participants will take part in discussions and practical exercises which will enhance their understanding of the concepts within team building. The course will cover the basics of team building and will prepare participants for implementing these concepts in an efficient and effective manner within their own business.
