We can all agree on the advantages of high performing teams.  The research is clear.  High performing teams are better at innovation, have greater productivity, and use resources more effectively.  High performing teams are not formed.  They are built.

This course is designed to share the best insights from research and current best practices in high performance teambuilding.  The course is hands-on, including case studies, practice material, and participant discussion.  A focus is placed on applying the new skills within the work unit.


Topics to be covered are:

The Case for Teamwork

Characteristics of High Performance Team

Essential Toolbox for Teambuilding

Leading the High Performance Team

Team Conflict

Overcoming Obstacles
