OVERVIEW

High performing teams are the backbones of successful, sustainable organizations. How well teams work together, communicate and resolve conflict can drive the success — or failure — of your company.

Great teams are energizing and productive, delivering breakthrough results. In an effective team, everyone understands how to contribute in ways that support team outcomes that go above and beyond what any individual could accomplish alone. But teamwork isn’t easy. Even the best teams, with the most well-intentioned members, can encounter problems that hinder their collective accomplishments.

This webinar is designed specifically for your managers and leaders to maximize their team’s productivity by understanding how to navigate the stages of building a cohesive work team; address the various challenges that occur throughout the team’s life cycle; and learn leadership techniques and team building strategies for different types of teams including project, cross cultural, virtual, self-managed and permanent. They will also develop skills to improve trust, communication and conflict resolution; align team members around shared goals; and effectively plan, communicate, execute, and deliver on those goals.

High performing teams increase innovation, creativity, as well as, the quality and quantity of results. Teams are also the breeding ground for your future leaders. So why not start building their fire-fighting team skills now!

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Are your people performing like superbly trained fire fighters - working together to get the teams’ projects done on time, on budget, and on target?

Or are they constantly dealing with misunderstandings, work falling through the cracks, and conflicts instead of cooperation?

Whether you are new to leading a team or a seasoned veteran, you will benefit from learning and practicing the crucial “Survival Strategies of Effective Fire Fighting” that will transform your work group into an efficient, cohesive working team.

You will become familiar with these four key principles of effective fire-fighting and then relate them to your own situation:

  • Dead Heroes Can’t Save Lives: Stay Alive
  • Are We Winning or Losing? No Surprises
  • Who Does the Dishes: Morale, Fun and Games
  • Sometimes We Need One Good Fire: Common Enemy

This webinar will provide you with the guidelines and principles to build and then maximize the strength and productivity of your team. There is an amazing strength and capability when your team members are in synch and working together to perform at heroic levels. The results will be exceptional team engagement and performance.
