Leading High Performance Teams

Course Length:
1 day

Overview

Achieving high team performance is significantly more challenging in the 21st century because of cross-functional teams, cross-company teams, teams with members located in multiple geographies and time zones, cultural differences and frequent changes in team membership. It is even more critical than in the past for team leaders to manage the key elements of team performance with discipline.

Leading High Performance Teams provides a practical framework and tools to help team leaders assess current team effectiveness and identify actions to enhance the performance of their teams. Participants learn to manage the key elements of team performance with persistence and discipline. Participants complete a simulation in which they quantitatively assess their ability to create team synergy.  Participants also assess the effectiveness of a team that they lead by completing the Team Performance Factors Questionnaire which includes norms based on a sample of over 100 teams. Participants then use the concepts, suggested actions and tools provided in this course to plan ways to enhance the performance of their team. Recognizing the prevalence of geographically distributed teams, this course also offers practical guidance for leading remote teams.
