Team Management Systems (TMS) has an international reputation for its work-based feedback Profiles, models and concepts. More than 8000 network members are accredited worldwide to use TMS products, resulting in thousands of applications workshops being run each year. Our success lies in the performance improvement and ROI (return on investment) that comes from our range of applications focused on all aspects of teamwork. We have built an international track record of being the preferred approach when it comes to improving teams.

This collection of key session designs comes from experienced Team Management Systems network members and master trainers. With contributors from Australia, England and Lebanon we are confident that this resource will become a key tool in planning and delivering workshops, courses and programs with the Linking Skills concepts and Profiles as their focus.

The volume is divided into core and applications-based designs. There are three Core Session Designs which give the basic structure for preparing participants to complete the profile questionnaires and show how to feed back the Profile in either one-on-one or group sessions.

There are over 20 Applications-based Designs covering specialist areas such as e-learning and executive team development to team dynamics and stakeholder management.
