Creating a High-Performance Team

One Day • Instructor-led

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.

  • Diagnose the stage of your team’s development and use that information to guide your leadership strategy to bring the team to higher performance.

  • Lead your team through the stages of development to realize the successful performance required by the organization.
