Leading High-Performing Teams

"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success." - Henry Ford

Course Description

Teams are a critical building block in today's successful organizations where structures are often flatter and processes are leaner to gain competitive advantage. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, performance or other similar goals, teams are the basic unit that supports most organizations. An ensuring those teams are empowered and enabled to perform at their best is a critical success factor for leaders today.

With teams at the core of corporate strategy, your success as an organization can often depend on how well you and other team members operate together. How are your problem-solving skills?
