High Performing Teams (HPTs)

This Workshop is usually one day in duration, focussing solely on how we build and maintain HPTs. 

However, it can be a two-day event incorporating aspects of Emotional Intelligence (EI), Communicating Effectively, and Managing My Day with group and individual activities to allow discussions on the topics.

Our Workshop Description

You may have heard a saying that “there is no I in team”. Well, we beg to differ, as we ask Leaders and Managers to focus very much on the individuals in the team so that they get the best from the whole team.

This thinking comes from our belief in Emotional Intelligence (EI). In EI, we say, "No self-awareness = A team that doesn’t care less”. We don’t mean this critically; it’s just that if team members are unaware (or don’t care) that their behaviour is impacting others in the Team negatively, then they will continue to behave like that. When we become self-aware, we have the opportunity to behave differently, which is a really important moment as the team needs to know how to handle this. 

High Performing Teams (HPTs) are cohesive in their approach to the Team. No one gets left alone, everyone is on each other's radar, and mental health check-ins are a daily habit rather than a should-do task. 

HPTs hardly need a Team Manager or Team Leader, as they operate collectively, care about each other, and are driven to attain Team-based objectives, goals and outputs. 

There may well be individual tasks or even KPIs. Still, they will work collectively to ensure that everyone works well together, that no one slacks, continuously makes the same mistakes, and will step in to help with workloads when they can without being asked. 

Leaders and Managers of HPTs will know they can get on with their work as they are confident their Team is getting on with theirs.  

“Some” of our Typical Content 

(All our workshops can be adapted to meet your organisational requirements)

  • How and why do HPTs work?
  • Groups vs Teams? 
  • Amygdala/Emotional hijack or control?
  • Values, Behaviours, ES2, Environment/Culture and your “People Strategy.”
  • To lead/manage a team, we refresh on Styles, Delegation, Collective Leadership, and Remote workers.
  • Saboteurs and challenging people’s attitudes or poor performance (people leave people).
  • Our ES2 thinking and why we MUST make this happen. 
  • An analysis of our reality using our HPT Assessment tool. 
  • Discussing and agreeing on actions that need to be taken.  

Who Should Attend and Why?

Who? - It may seem that the only people who need to attend this type of workshop are Team Leaders or Managers, but we strongly recommend that whole Teams attend this workshop so they can work on the outcomes collaboratively back at work. 

Why? - Organisations shout how they want everything done asap or even yesterday. Sadly, it can’t always be that way, and if that is the case where you work, then someone or some people need to change how they work and stop putting that stress on their people.  

Ask yourself that question… Why is there so much stress at work? How do some people/teams seem just to cope? We have at least some of the answers from many years of discussing this, including the new working-from-home issues that bubble up from time to time.  

So come along and join in our discussions about how we work, how we think we have to work, how we want to work, and how we want others to help us manage our time.  

Our Delivery Options

When you consider the content we deliver, we are sure you will understand why we always prefer to deliver our workshops, courses and programmes face-to-face.

Face-to-face workshops and courses can be held at a location of your choice or, if you wish, a central UK location, at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel in Birmingham, located directly across from the Birmingham New Street train station. 

We can deliver our workshops, courses and programmes online, although this will mean splitting elements into manageable learning events to suit the online environment. 

All Expenses

ALL our expenses are included in our daily rate, so will be no other charges applied (unless additional add-ons are required, such as catch-up sessions when someone misses a workshop).
