This paper aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a group‐based team leadership development workshop in achieving five objectives. The study is an intrinsic case study using qualitative, semi‐structured interviews. Participants recorded eight categories of shared common experience supporting effectiveness of the workshops in achieving five stated objectives. Interviews were conducted only once, following the workshop limiting the understanding of long‐term effects, and categories of experience were not returned to all participants for validation. Useful information for organizations and consultants involved in developing a multidisciplinary leadership team and maintaining the benefits of a group‐based approach. This study examines a unique case of an organizational development intervention in health care and provides practitioners with insight into the benefits and drawbacks of interpersonal, group‐based interventions.
