Title: Designing and Leading High Performance Teams 9009; 2 days, Instructor-led
Description: Teamwork is an essential building block of any business. Creating and managing teams that perform at high level and provide results exceeding expectation is critical to the success of business in today’s competitive market. High performance teamwork seldom happens on its own – it requires focus, discipline, energy, and a bit of TLC. Relationships, communication skills, problem solving acumen, and strategy development all have a role in the production and productivity of every team; the best teams attend to each of these areas deliberately and with a vision towards awe-inspiring success. Because teams are often formed for specific projects/issues and typically are short-lived, the basics of excellent teamwork are a required skill set for any potential team member. Successful team leaders are aware of the foundations and dynamics of high performing teams and know how to quickly engage team members in the fine art of teamwork. The Designing and Leading High Performance Team workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly assimilate and leverage the keys to successful teamwork. Content includes team and teamwork theory, a review of the relationships that can make or break a team, strategies for leveraging the strengths of team members, and a framework for team planning.
