Team Development

Teamwork is an essential feature of organisational life whether in the private, public or voluntary sector. The performance of a team is influenced by a wide range of internal and external factors. Volunteers in faith organisations have to work collaboratively to develop a clear understanding of the vision, aims and objectives of the organisation but this can sometimes be challenging without a good grasp of team dynamics and team development process.

The aim of this programme is to examine the significance of teams in the organisation, how they develop and their impact on performance.

Participants will learn 

  • About types of teams in organisations
  • How to use relevant models to analyse the composition of a team (i.e., Belbin’s model)
