Who should attend
This program is designed for both new and experienced leaders wishing to enhance their ability to build and lead effective teams. Interested participants are encouraged to attend individually or in teams from their organizations.
About the course
Effective teams spur innovation, facilitate adaptation, and ensure efficient functioning in almost all organizations. Teams that are led effectively have greater cohesion, employee engagement, and creativity which result in superior performance and satisfaction. Learning how to build, lead, and sustain effective teams provides leaders and organizations with a competitive advantage.
This 1-day program will provide the participant with the knowledge and tools to build and lead effective teams (standing, temporary, and/or virtual), manage conflict, build trust with others, and shape a culture of empowerment and shared leadership.
Building and Leading Effective Teams is the second of four open enrollment leadership programs. New programs will be introduced quarterly with completion of all four programs resulting in a Certificate in Leadership from the Center for Leadership and Character. Interested participants are able and encouraged to participate in this individual program or begin the series at any point to earn the certificate.
