What is it that drives success in elite teams within sport? And is this applicable to management and leadership teams within education? The simple answer is yes, and this course will equip you with the knowledge, tools and techniques to drive the performance of YOUR team. Teams at work so often fail to fulfil their potential, with frustration and lack of understanding getting in the way. This day enables you as a team to cut through all the ‘noise’ and understand how to drive forward as a team in a high performing way.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” African proverb
