Developing Cross-Team Support – a One Day Course Developing Cross-Team Support PDF

What’s it all about?

 

Cross-Team Support is about breaking down departmental barriers. Our inherent competitive tendencies often hamper our best intentions about working effectively with other teams. This one-day course explores this and demonstrates how much more constructively we can be when we work with and through other teams.

 

Who for?

  • Established Departments
  • New Teams or Businesses with different departments (eg Sales, Delivery, Finance)
  • Shift Teams
  • Teams with competitive identities

Why?

  • A concrete example of supportive inter-team working helping to make the day fun and profitable.
  • An idea of who your colleagues are (faces behind the phones?) will provide a platform for problem solving in the future.
  • A shared identity and fun experience to look back upon and use in the future.

Can this be developed?

 

Yes. Many companies go for a two-day or four-day course rather than a one-day. The longer the course then the more in-depth the learning.

 

Where?

 

At a venue near you! The course may have to be modified a little depending on the resources available, but we can run this at almost any conference centre or even in your own workplace. The prices below do not include day delegate conference facilities as theses prices vary depending on the venue.

 

What’s included in the price?

  • Insurance (to £5m)
  • Pre-course preparation
  • Full facilitation
  • Activities, full safety equipment and staffing
  • Post-Course evaluation

How much will it cost?

  • Up to 10 delegates: £1,200.00
  • Up to 20 delegates: £2,100.00
  • Up to 30 delegates: £2,900.00
