Building and Leading Teams

Course description

This course will explore the challenges of leading teams that are inherited as well as those that are purpose-built. Participants will develop the skills to build high-performing teams. We will examine the attributes of successful team leaders and develop the leadership skills to create vision and mission for teams by engaging team members and developing team ownership of goals and benchmarks. Using case studies and simulations, participants will build practical skills in empowering team members, delegating responsibilities, creating an open team culture, eliciting ideas from team members in shared projects, and moving teams forward, as well as managing conflict in a team and providing feedback to team members.
