Teams in Transition

Managing Change Programme

This programme is a flexible and total approach to managing change, adapted to your particular needs. It may include tailored consultancy, bespoke training courses, workshops and action learning groups, as well as one-to-one coaching for team members, or mentoring for those in leadership roles.

Teams in Transition (1 Day Course)

When teams are new, or in times of transition, it is hard to maintain high-performance, efficiency and enjoyable team-working. Yet change itself holds the possibility of maximising potential and finding the support needed for success.

This course focuses on the three elements of the working environment that — when kept in balance — enable us to reach successful outcomes: the task, the team and the individual. By exploring how these three aspects work together, times of transition can quickly stabilise, firm foundations are laid for the future, and the team’s potential is realised.

The day combines key learning about optimum team-work with enjoyable interraction. It is specifically designed for times of stress, change, or transition.

Course Aims:

  • To support teams in times of change and transition
