Effective Teams is our team effectiveness training.
Effective Teams is a 1 day course that will help your team achieve outstanding success. It achieves this through a process of self-assessment and teamwork. We use the McQuaig Self-Development Survey™ and lots of team activities. These tools give real insight and help build genuine empathy between team members.
Teams excel when they are able to understand the strengths of their members. The key is to build on those strengths. Individual members are valued for what they personally bring to the team. Individuals who are valued are naturally more engaged.
Engaged team members are:
- More productive and;
- Contribute to the overall success of the group.
An Effective Teams course will show your team where the strengths of its members lie. In turn, they will be able to build on those strengths. With a common language, conflict resolution should be easier and better team work can be achieved.

Who should attend an Effective Teams course?
Our team effectiveness training is designed for teams that want to communicate better and build on their natural strengths.
Previous participants tell us they now understand why there is sometimes conflict within the team. They also tell us this team effectiveness training taught them why they and their colleagues approach things differently. Most importantly, they feel they now have the language to use to constructively raise concerns.
Team effectiveness training doesn’t focus on one or two individual stars. It focuses on the whole team. It is when the whole team is working successfully that the whole machine begins to work effectively.
“You don’t win with the best talent – you win with the players who are able to play well together.”
