This workshop will introduce participants into interpersonal, group, team and leadership skills. The format for the workshop is through interactive participation, using several exercises and case studies. The skills developed are appropriate for application in management or leadership positions in various types of organisations including business, industry or volunteer activities.

An important part will deal with problem solution and co-operation with difficult team members by a proper involvement in the process of problem solving and decision making. In the workshop the different types of conflicts as well as various strategies and its consequences will be analyzed. Choosing the right team is a preventive measure to minimise the causes of conflicts and during controversial discussions it is important to have a team which acts as objectively as possible by keeping to the facts and weighing the consequences of the decisions. To select the right person for a position it is very useful to know and to categorise its personality. Self tests and its evaluation as well as case studies will help to understand a scheme of personality types presented.
