Diagnose and Develop Team Health
Teams are where we get work done, especially if you’re working on something ambitious and innovative. Yet, teamwork is becoming increasingly complex and dynamic as teams become more distributed, diverse, and matrixed. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore what makes teams effective and how teams can improve how they work together. You’ll walk away with a framework to use as you assess team dynamics and some ideas to put into practice as you support team leaders on their journey to develop team performance.
