Is your organization missing out on the power of teams? Successful teams have a positive effect on employee engagement and a direct impact on how your organization meets its strategic goals. In a team environment, leaders must stimulate collaboration and group decision-making. In addition, you are often expected to involve employees from different parts and levels of the organization in projects even when they do not have direct authority over those team members. These cross-functional teams can be the driving force for change and improvement in your organization. You will discuss how to lay the groundwork for successful teams while identifying the leadership skills and behaviors needed to create positive change in a team environment.
