It takes great leadership to build an effective team. Team building is essential in any business. However, building a great team is easier said than done. Research indicates that as many as sixty percent of work teams fail for a wide variety of reasons. You can't just assemble a group of people and expect them all to function flawlessly together. Leading people brings many challenges since individuals that make up a team all have different values, mindsets, and skills. Expecting people to just get along is not a realistic expectation. Even the best leaders have problems getting everyone on the same page. Leaders must develop a keen understanding of the individuals, their strengths and weaknesses, what motivates them, and how they can work together to accomplish a shared goal.
Participants are leaders of departmental, cross-functional, or project teams who may or may not have direct authority over team members. The content of this series is also appropriate for individuals in management/supervisory roles moving from a traditional organization structure to a team-oriented environment.
