MDP Number : 41
Area : Organizational Behaviour
Venue : XLRI Jamshedpur
Programme Directors : Manish Singhal

Introduction and Objective :

Teams have become the tools by which organizations accomplish their objectives. Common experience suggests that the transition from managing individual heroism to being a team member to contributing through other team members ensuring consistent performance is not an easy task. Thus, dealing with poor team performance remains a major concern for most team leaders, be it in research teams, product-development teams, production teams, sales and marketing teams, cross-functional problem-solving teams, or top management teams. A team is indeed more than a group of people who are working together!

This programme would give managers, team leaders, team members, and team consultants specific experience and guidance on how to improve team performance. Although the programme may be seen as being well-suited for poor-performing or dysfunctional teams, it can also help transform average or even good teams into great ones.

This programme would help the participants hone their skills and provide the tools to deal with multifarious issues of ensuring sustained performance from their teams.

Methodology :

The programme shall utilize a rich and healthy mix of interactive lecture sessions, research instrument based feedback, experiential exercises, role-plays and Learn-by-doing techniques to help the participants further sharpen relevant skills.

The participants shall be encouraged to express themselves and further increase their personal and interpersonal effectiveness in a group setting. The overall learning will therefore depend on active participation from participants, especially in sharing of experiences and learning every day.

Expected Participant :

Accomplished senior- and middle-level managers from private and public sector organizations.
