Building and Leading High Performance Dream Teams: Formula for Success - CANCELLED


Topics: Leadership Development | Leading Project Teams | Scope Management | Motivation

Can you imagine what the business outcome for your project would be like if you had a High Performance Dream Team? If you had a team whose members fully understood what is expected of them in nearly any situation and performed accordingly? A team that comfortably clicked among all its members and selflessly supported one another? A team that fully communicated, was professionally mature and accountable, and rallied for the good of the whole?

Imagine no more! Welcome to this seminar! 

Using assessment instruments, assess the effectiveness of team members, the team and the project leader; learn what makes a team member and a project leader valuable; learn how to create team shared values and a team charter; and experience exercises that can help build your dream team. Bonus: A takeaway starter kit for post-class use with your team.

Virtually every Project Leader can take away ideas/techniques from this seminar that can immediately be implemented to help their teams achieve higher performance. Adopting all the seminar’s concepts can provide you and your team the greatest benefit, but adopting a subset can have a notable and sustained impact.
