Team Leadership: Leading Teams  (Monday)

This course 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. Effective team leadership requires the ability to assess team and individual behaviors to determine the best course of action to support cohesion and productivity. Then the leader adjusts the style accordingly.

Team Leadership: Creating Effective Work Groups (Tuesday)

This course is designed to help you achieve a more self-directed, cohesive, and engaged work group. A series of exercises and rich group discussions immerse you in the conversations and critical processes that high-functioning teams utilize to build and sustain success. You have an opportunity to brainstorm, problem-solve, and practice realistic ways to lead your group toward greater alignment and deeper levels of commitment and engagement.

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team  (Wednesday)

This class is offered as a one-day workshop that is designed to help team members and leaders use the model as a way to function more effectively so that their team can achieve their full potential. This workshop provides leaders with an in-depth understanding of the model and tools for applying the theory in order to help their teams become more productive and cooperative. Materials include a participant workbook and the assessment.

Generations Working Together  (Thursday)

To help participants recognize and gain a greater understanding of the unique needs of different generations in the workforce. A generation is defined as a society-wide peer group which possesses a commonality of experiences. These common experiences result in members of the same generation sharing common attitudes and behaviors. Differences among generations can negatively affect the work environment, and, if not addressed, may create rifts in the workplace. Participants will spend time how to best meet the needs of those differences as leaders and as an organization.

Change Management: Building Resiliency (Friday)

Change Management: Building Resiliency will assist you in understanding the process of change transition in order to successfully manage and guide other through change. We live in a fast-paced world of upheaval and without change management skills we often are passive waiting to be told what to do, how to feel, and how to behave. Learning the nuances of transitioning yourself and others is a key skill for individual contributors and leaders in your organization.
