Course Overview:

This course is part of the Manager as Leader Series, which is designed to help ignite, inspire, and nurture the leader mindset within you. To complete the series, you must attend four of the available six courses. You may take the courses in any order.

Very few would assert that teamwork doesn’t matter. We know it matters. Most of us can identify it when we see it. But do we actually know what it takes to create it? What goes into building and sustaining a strong team? Is it luck, work, or both?

Course Objectives:

  • Create team identity: clarify purpose, people, priorities, parameters, process, and progress.
  • Foster team trust: foster integrity, esteem, alignment, capability, and results.
  • Ensure team alignment: align to a vision, organization, stakeholders, goals, and roles.
  • Facilitate team performance: set goals and keep score; confront and collaborate; learn and coach; and standardize and improve.
  • Guide team transition: review and reinforce team success, and realign and renew continued success.
  • Learn six team success roadmaps: Identity, Team Trust, Team Alignment, Team Performance, Team Transition, and Team Success.
