Smurfit Executive Development in collaboration with Leinster Rugby

You have the potential to be among your organisation’s greatest assets — but capitalising on your abilities requires new knowledge and skills.
UCD Smurfit Executive Development in collaboration with Leinster Rugby, are delighted to announce a new three-day course ‘Building and Leading High-Performing Teams’. Through the integration of examples from the sports and business worlds, this unique, intensive and highly interactive short course, will equip you with insights & skills to build your leadership strengths and prepare you for greater challenges.

Change the way you experience leadership

The dynamics of teamwork are too complex to be mastered through classroom work alone. Working with Leinster Rugby’s leadership team, Building and Leading High-Performing Teams provides a distinct combination of classroom and case work, along with experiential exercises in a dynamic, interactive environment. It builds upon years of combined expertise, on and off the pitch, in providing strategic insights to help participants build and nurture performance-driven teams.

Through cross-functional team building and helping participants to develop an enhanced ability to build, lead, inspire and sustain high-performing teams, this three-day course places you in settings and contexts that will change the way you experience leadership. Each day you will test new strategies and practical tools through hands-on experiences with instant feedback and participate in integrated sessions that connect course content to your real-world issues.
