Course introduction

High performing teams don't just 'happen'. Developing teams of people who work well together, and who harness the differing strengths and attributes of all team members, needs team leaders and managers who understand the process involved and are prepared to put effort into the things that make a real difference.

Every team is different, but the factors that determine a team's success or otherwise are well understood and can be developed so that it isn't something that is left to chance.
