Building and Managing Effective teams

ABOUT

Virtually every employee has, at one time or another, been a member of a business team. Undoubtedly, being able to build and develop effective teams is of paramount importance to most organizations since rarely do people get to produce significant results without the contribution of others. Our work is closely interrelated and, in fact, often times depends on the work of others. In order to perform our job duties effectively, we usually need information and input from other employees. Therefore, whether you are a member of a business team or its leader, it is crucial to understand team dynamics and the role they play into the productivity and effectiveness of the team. A group of individuals working for the same assigned task does not necessarily constitute an effective and productive team.

So, how do we turn a group of individual employees into an effective team? How do we get the most out of team members? How do we enhance their performance? How can we resolve conflicts before they become detrimental to team goals? What can we do to motivate employees when we don’t have the power to reward them or the authority to reprimand them? How do different personality types affect team performance? All these and other questions will be answered at our seminar helping you gain a solid understanding on what it means to work within a team and what you can do to produce better results whether you are a team member or the team leader. Throughout the seminar, you will be able to apply the theoretical concepts that you learn to a variety of situations presented in group exercises.

It can also cover the maintenance PDU requirements for the CAPM and PMP Certifications.
