A Guide to Navigating Team Dynamics course is essential for any industry manager. Workplace teams can—and should—be more than just the sum of their human parts. Beyond the skills and expertise each person has, it’s the way these individuals come together to tackle a project that can give it a special boost—or act as a shackle. The interplay of personalities, roles, work habits, management styles, and more can affect how teams get work done. These invisible factors, known as team dynamics, are the powerful forces that govern how people relate in executing their work tasks.
In this course, you’ll learn what team dynamics are and how they can influence decision-making and efficiency on your team. You’ll get primed on what shapes these invisible forces and how to recognise and manage these influences to set your team up for success. We’ll also run through some situations to help hone your identification and application skills so that you can better manage how your team works together.
Once you have completed the course, you will have increased your knowledge of the following topics:
