Implementing truly effective teams is more difficult than often considered. In this webinar, we will take a realistic and practical look at how an organization’s leaders can foster successful teams. The challenges of team-building are central to leadership in general, including: clarifying vision and purpose, taking a whole-systems view, facilitating constructive interaction, motivating performance, assessing progress, and skillful problem-solving. I will share real-life case studies; tips and tools; and resources for further learning.
- What makes a real team different than a “group” or a “pseudo-team.”
- How leadership creates an environment in which teams can flourish.
- Team practices that foster success.
- The power of diverse teams.
- Practical tips and tools.
