A team is always a group, but a group is not always a team!


A team is always a group, but a group is not always a team!  

Teamwork includes sharing of important knowledge with others and the creation, support and enhancement of co-operation and collaboration. For the sake of group success, it is vital that each team member understands how to assign or accept responsibility, inspire other team members, manage conflict between self and/or other team members, enhance the strengths of the team, and hedge the weaknesses of the team.  

This webinar highlights the importance of understanding team DNA and how teams develop. Join Constance Kawelenga CA(SA) on 1 December 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as she discusses this, and also shows how leaders can develop high performance teams.
