At one point or another, we all find ourselves working with teams. Maybe you have the benefit of being part of a long-standing team where everyone really gets to know each other and can learn how to work together effectively. Or maybe you have been in situations where you were included in a short-term team that needed to achieve a specific goal quickly.

No matter the team setting, there are actions and choices you can take to help the team succeed regardless of your role within the group. In fact, the strongest teams are often less about who the leader  is, and more about he or she using the strengths of each member, working together, to be successful.

In this session, you will see how you can use your own strengths to be a team builder on any team you are part of, no matter what the situation. Participants will learn the building blocks for a good team, ways to avoid some of the pitfalls that make teams less effective and the role you play in making any team your “best” team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Be able to identify specific behaviors and outcomes that define a successful team
  • Recognize the common challenges teams face and how you can manage them early
  • Identify your typical communication style, and how to use or adjust that as needed in a team setting
