About the course

Course provides participants with key concepts and knowledge that will help them not only to understand the nature of high performance teams but also to develop and sustain them in practice. Course material integrates research and best practice from human resources management, organizational behavior, organizational psychology, leadership science, social psychology, personality psychology, sociology, and history. The course is designed to apply: (a) knowledge of the characteristics of high performance teams (differentiating them from other types of teams and work groups) and (b) assessment methodologies to prepare the participants to position their teams to achieve and sustain high performance status in both leader and non-leader roles.

LEARNING OUTCOMES/COURSE OBJECTIVES

By the end of the course, participants are likely to:

  • Distinguish high performance teams from other types of teams and work groups.
  • Understand the multiple steps to achieve and sustain high performance status.
  • Leverage a better understanding of how individual differences in personality affect team processes and be positioned to adopt long-term strategies that enhance their political and social skill (i.e., yielding a higher “Team Emotional Quotient” or TEQ). Some aspects of team functioning are outside of one’s influences. Enhancing one’s own TEQ is critical and within one’s capability to address.
