Companies have become increasingly complex—both geographically and operationally. Old top-down leadership styles need to be replaced with two-way communication and collaboration. Learn the specific tasks you'll need to orchestrate in order to lead teams successfully in today's organizations. Performance-Based Objectives: At the completion of this course you’ll know how to: • Diagnose the stage of your team’s development and use that information to guide your leadership strategy to bring the team to higher performance. • Continuously improve your leadership skills, select the right team members for the task, establish the team’s purpose, and ensure fit with the organization’s needs. • Lead your team through the stages of development to realize the successful performance required by the organization. • Lead a “problem team” or “broken team” to effective performance. • Revitalize a “tired team” and create a “virtual team.”
