Are you the manager of a team you feel could benefit from a team build session or some tailored development?
Working effectively as part of a team is essential to the success of our University. As well as offering sessions from our People Development Programme, we also offer bespoke development for teams. So, whether you are interested in having a day devoted to strategic planning, communication or working with others, we will work with you to design a day to meet your needs.
Cost, which will need to be funded locally, depends on the type of activity, materials and venue choices.
To ensure you get the most from this opportunity, it is important that we are involved in the planning from day one. We have a wealth of contacts and suggestions to help ensure maximise impact from your day with the most appropriate development available and the expertise to advise and help you to achieve your desired outcomes.
If you are interested in arranging a team development event, please contact POD@leedsbeckett.ac.uk at least six weeks in advance of your planned activity. For further information please refer to our process and guidelines which will help us plan the event that is right for you.
Unless already agreed, the People and OD Team will source the most appropriate facilitator for your team’s development. It will then be up to you/your team to arrange the logistics of the event, such as the venue, hospitality and invites.
Evaluating Team Building / Tailored Development
Here's some feedback we've had from previous sessions:
"Just a note on behalf of the team to say many thanks for your help with the preparation and delivery of our away day. As usual your support made a huge difference to the success of the day and I really appreciate having your professional guidance and advice."
"My learning from the session will enable me to make the most of peoples' strengths, talk their language, and be more aware of their value system. This session has contributed to a better understanding of people's behaviours and better, more effective, communication with everyone in the team."
"The exercises we did during the day have helped me to appreciate the way others in the team like to work, and how to adapt my style accordingly."
