About the course

Steps to Building a Cohesive, Productive Team

Let’s face it, most business teams are often nowhere near as effective as they could be. Even worse, many are dysfunctional, and that drains employees’ energy, enthusiasm, and creativity.

Join renowned leadership experts Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton as they explain the findings of a recent study of more than 850,000 working adults, which reveals the most important elements of leading a productive team in today’s volatile, complex world.

This webinar will challenge you to freshly examine your approach to team leadership and assumptions about how people effectively work together. For 90 minutes you will learn practical steps to improve your work group’s performance—no matter your industry or the size of your team.
