Leading More Effective Teams

« back to classes page
Great teams are energizing and productive, delivering breakthrough results. But high-performing teams only happen as a result of intentional, strategic work on your part, the team leader.
This two-day intensive program will first help you understand how your leadership style impacts how you both assemble and manage teams.
Additionally, the program will outline the critical conversations necessary to build your team’s infrastructure, including goals, roles, and norms, so that all members can fully contribute. You will also learn to hold individuals accountable for both task performance and building productive relationships. And you’ll discover how to refine processes throughout the project timeline so that team members can adjust behaviors and task activities in real time.
In just two days, you will hone the strategies and skills essential to building and leading a diverse team toward your aspirational outcomes: a team that more effectively plans, executes, and delivers.
