Developing and Managing Effective Teams Within the Public Sector


Teamwork is integral to the success of any organization. An effective manager needs to know how to create, oversee, direct and inspire teams in order to achieve this success. Awareness of your personal communication behaviors and those of your team can help to improve your ability to contribute to beneficial team interactions. Focus on the skills and techniques needed by managers and team leaders as they develop teams and interpersonal cooperation.


Workshop materials will identify structures and processes to help assure teams complete their task effectively and to identify alternative actions to take when a team ceases to be productive. Workshop activities will include interactive application exercises to provide a tangible sense of experience in leading and working with teams.
