Course Description

Tangent at Trinity – Masterclass in Team Dynamics

Trinity College Dublin

In a professional team-based environment, we each bring a unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, expertise, skills, interests, experiences, and prejudices to a given project. The way team members interact can have a major impact on performance and cohesion. A high-performing team will always strive for something greater than its members could achieve individually and such a team is characterised by specific behaviours. Facilitating, encouraging and rewarding these behaviours increases the likelihood of a successful project outcome. Understanding and managing team dynamics can help to explain why some teams perform while others fail.

This masterclass will develop your understanding of team roles and the characteristics of high-performance teams. You will focus on two specific team dynamics – trust and purpose, and identify ways to enhance both. You will also learn how to identify and alleviate team dysfunction.

This is designed for anyone working within a team environment in a business, educational, community, problem-solving or restorative environment. It is suitable for project managers, people managers, team leaders, consultants, and facilitators alike.

The masterclass is offered in two formats:

  • Taster session
  • Masterclass

The taster session introduces you to the principles of team dynamics and how these can impact performance. It provides a unique opportunity to sample the material, reflect on your role as a team member and meet those involved in developing the masterclass.

The masterclass provides an in-depth understanding of team dynamics and how to analyse and manage it. You will learn the critical success factors in high-performing team formation and development.

Completion of the taster session is not a pre-requisite for masterclass participation.

This masterclass is also delivered as part of our eight-week Creating a Culture for Strategic Innovation programme.
