Leading High Performing Technical Teams

A positive team culture is a key driver of performance; boosting engagement, reducing absenteeism, and motivating team members to reach their potential.  To be both successful and sustainable, the culture must be driven from the top, but striking the right balance can be difficult, particularly for managers of technical teams, where the focus is often on task completion, a specialisation, or technical/professional contribution.

What you will learn

You will develop a range of leadership techniques, mindsets and approaches to create a high-performing culture in your team of professionals, technical experts, and specialists. Working with a diverse group of managers, you will explore:

  • How to shape a leadership mindset and apply new approaches to the challenges of leading expert or technical teams
  • Your personal leadership journey and understanding your accountabilities
  • Techniques to increase engagement and motivation
  • Leading in today's workplace – remote, global and geographically-dispersed teams
  • Frameworks to strengthen decision-making
  • Approaches to increase engagement, communication and collaboration with internal and external stakeholders
  • How to strengthen your own relationship with your manager and the impact on your team culture

Who is the course designed for

This course is designed to give managers and leaders of technical teams the skills to understand and apply the mindsets, leadership approaches, and engagement techniques required to foster a high-performing team culture, even when working with remote or geographically-dispersed teams.

Style of learning

This three-day course combines a one-day self-paced online module with a two-day in class session.

The interactive digital learning platform for this course is in story format, with each subsequent module building your knowledge and skills. During the in-class component of the course you will apply your learnings from the digital modules of the course. There are reflective leadership short-answer and multi-choice questions to complete, case studies to read, and videos to watch within each of the five modules. You can expect each module to take an average of two-hours to complete. Each section within a module is approximately 20 minutes. We estimate an overall commitment of 8.5 hours pre-class work to receive maximum benefit from your time in class.

Once your registration for the course is complete, we will send you detailed information on accessing the digital learning platform approximately one month from the face-to-face session for the course.
