HR Competencies

• Leadership and Navigation


What makes for a high performing team? Are you prepared to do it? This class offers team leaders, supervisors, and managers an opportunity to assess and think critically about what sets a team up for success, and what derails that success. The focus is on evaluating team and individual behaviors to determine the best course of action to support cohesion and productivity.

Effective team leadership requires the ability to assess the team’s developmental stages and identify needs and challenges impacting individual members and the team dynamic. The leader then adjusts how they respond and guides accordingly. In today’s complex and competitive business environment, organizations rely on team cohesion to navigate for success.
