A ½ day workshop to help managers and supervisors enhance
the quality of team briefings and meetings
About the workshop
Keeping your team informed and inspired
is a critical leadership skill. Regular team briefings and meetings
provide opportunities for leaders to act and be seen as leaders.
They help share information, keep everyone on track, and build team
identity. When done well, team briefing is enjoyable, informative
and motivating for the team. When done poorly it bores, stifles
and dispirits and is probably better not done at all! What makes
the difference? The way the team leader handles it.
This half day workshop is designed to help
you refresh and brush-up your skills in holding engaging and effective
team briefing meetings. It will help you:
get ideas for improving the quality
and effectiveness of your briefing meetings
build your skills and confidence as
meet, discuss and compare practice
with other team briefers
Usually 6-8 participants with a single tutor
The skills involved are best learnt through
active practice so this will be a highly participative workshop.
Everyone will be encouraged to have a go at delivering a mini-briefing
session to others and will get some coaching on their performance.
We aim to create an informal, engaging and supportive atmosphere
where everyone can practice and improve.
½ day, typically 3½ hours am or
The workshop runs in a coaching style and
the programme may change to meet the needs and interests of participants
on the day.
