Course description

Teamwork skills are increasingly in demand.

The level of complexity and instability inside organisations is so high that even very competent professionals cannot handle it by themselves.

Organisations today need:

  • the integration of different skills and kinds of expertise into a wide spectrum of professionalism;
  • a broader and holistic problem-solving that derives from different points of view;
  • the contamination between different management styles, attitudes, cultures and values to effectively respond to the diversity and richness of the surrounding environment.

Multifunctionality best represents both the potential richness and the difficulties in team work.

Working together in a team isn’t always easy, but it can be learnt and improved continuously.

This course, based on Bruce Tuckman’s model of group/team development, will show you the different difficulties and challenges that groups/teams need to face during the different stages of their development in order to become a High-Performing Team.
