Behaviour towards the team

As project manager you must continuously be aware that your behaviour has an effect on the team you are leading. We have the following training courses focused on this:

  • Management and teamwork
  • The team builder

Ultimately, every project manager gets the team he deserves, and for this reason alone, all of these skills are so important.

Training: Management & Teamwork (1 Dag)

This one-day training is for project managers who want to gain more insight into the development of a team and the interventions that they, dependent on the stage the team finds itself in, can apply in an effective manner.

The following three subjects are covered:

  • Team roles
  • Leadership styles
  • Group dynamics

In the team roles we look at the psychological role that someone wants to play in a team, and the tension this can cause between the project employees. Insights into which leadership styles are most appropriate here, and how the group dynamics can develop during the project, make the participants more effective project managers.

Follow-up steps

A logical follow-up to this training would be participation in a comprehensive project start-up.

Training: The Team Builder (3 Days)

Once you have managed a project team a number of times, then you are aware of the extent to which a team can make or break the project. It has been said more than once that the quality of the delivered result is a reflection of the organisation that produced it.

This three-day training has been specially developed for project managers, who want to further develop their skills as team builders. The training is based on the personal qualities of the participants and builds further on these. The following subjects are covered:

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

Team vision

In this training, we identify the strong characteristics of the participants and we teach them to use these in providing leadership to their team. We practice this a lot in the form of role plays, which are based on the experience input by the participants themselves. By definition, the latter makes the training relevant and geared to the participants’ experience.
