Building Your Team's Capacity
Building your team’s capacity and capability through professional development is a key strategy to improve performance. Capacity building at both an individual and team level, results in high-performing teams and successful businesses.
Professional development provides the knowledge and skills required to do the job well, as well as the motivation to use these skills in ways that improve performance. Professional development is not an optional extra. It is a critical business investment and strategy to improve performance and achiev results.
Quality training and education can provide a competitive advantage by enabling organisations and individuals to respond more quickly and effectively than their competitors.
Providing access to employees to build their skills and knowledge can significantly increase their level of engagement. For some employees, providing purposeful training can act as a key motivator in their performance. IT can act as both a motivator and a reward. For others, the quality time of spending time with their team whilst learning is a valued way to meet their needs.
There are technical aspects of any business that require specific training to ensure core functions of a role can be performed. Providing access to training that focuses on the development of interpersonal skills and effective team work is arguably more critical. If teams can't effectively work together, all the technical knowledge under the sun will not assist team cohesion.
