NewLeadership, Team Skills & Collaboration

In the current VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) the ability to function as a flexible and adaptive team is vital for organisations. Inter- and intra-organisational collaborations are becoming the norm, as complex projects require the input of multiple specialists and stakeholders. 

The 'Leadership and Team Skills' course focuses on boosting effective teamwork and collaboration, using Applied Improvisation as a fast-track experiential methodology.  It aims to help individuals and teams to become more effective by providing direct experiential insight into which attitudes, mindsets, and behaviours help and hinder this development.

At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our professional development skills training courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.  


Key features of the course include:

  • experiential and participatory – learning through direct experience and action rather than theory, using the innovative methodology of Applied Improvisation
  • direct insight into which attitudes, mindsets, and behaviours support effective team operation
  • distinguishing teamwork from collaboration, understanding the ways in which they differ, and the different requirements of each.
  • insight into individual team style preferences, and opportunities to explore alternative approaches
  • a focus on flexible and adaptable leadership and followership, and the ability to move between the two
  • an engaging and interactive workshop.

Designed for:

Anyone who has a need to operate as part of a team, or to collaborate with others – which is more or less everyone!


Learning outcomes:

Participants will develop an understanding of the personal mindsets, attitudes, and behaviours the help achieve good teamwork and will have a direct visceral experience of how good teamwork feels. During the Leadership & Team Skills course, they will learn the difference between teamwork and collaboration, and access to the different skills required for each mode

They will develop flexibility in the face of uncertainty and discover techniques for group creative problem-solving. They will get experience in both confident leadership and strong followership, vital for flexible and adaptable teams.
