Team Performance

TEAM PERFORMANCE PROGRAM

DESCRIPTION

This unique program builds emergency preparedness, situational awareness, decision making, technical skill capability, communication and the safety leadership skills required for an effective and cohesive incident response. Focusing on frontline workplace responders, TPP transforms individual capability in both technical and human skill areas by tailoring the challenges to suit each participant. These individual changes trigger a ripple effect within the team, leading to positive cultural shifts that enhance overall team performance.

APPLICATION

The Team Performance program (TPP) is designed specifically to develop higher performing emergency response teams through the capability of individuals and sustained team performance.

PROGRAM CONTENT

The Team Performance program builds on a technical skill base, develops the human skills factors and then creates realistic environments where participants can experience the stimuli they would normally expect to encounter in their operational environment.

Content includes:

  • Support and enhancement of current skills and disciplines required by the ERT including life support, fire, vertical rescue, hazardous atmospheres, vehicle and plant
  • Emergency preparedness of equipment and resources for immediate and rapid response
  • Human Skills Factors including
    − Decision Making: highlights the factors involved in traditional and naturalistic decision making and their relevance to IRCER, RR+R’s decision making process
    - Situational Awareness: highlights the key factors involved in situational awareness and the cognitive challenges that shift outcome perception
    − State Management: highlights the imperative, and techniques required, to manage the effect emotional stimuli has on performance during high risk cascading events
  • Performance inhibitors - techniques are highlighted to manage inhibitors that may impact an individuals performance
  • Development of individual leadership capability in order to influence others in high risk, time poor environments
  • Consolidation interviews - each team member is provided impartial feedback, confidentially, on key areas specific to the enhancement of their performance.
