Essential Skills of Leading and Managing Teams
This three-week, small group, in-person course is designed to teach team managers how to delegate tasks to team members, how to balance team members’ strengths and weaknesses, how to handle different team member roles, and how to develop team goals and organization. As a result, teams will operate with clearer objectives, will communicate more effectively, meet goals more productively, and have fewer instances of discordance.
In this session, participants will discuss that by focusing on a team member’s behaviors (not their attitudes) creates objective, fact-based conversations. Also, they will examine methods to make team members feel valued and appreciated – which ultimately moves team members toward their goals.
In this session, participants will learn and practice methods to help team members take ownership of the problems they face and to use time efficiently to allow coworkers to derive the maximum benefit from meetings.
