Everyone desires to be part of a highly-motivated, high-moral and high-performing team. As managers, you have the opportunity to create a positive team environment where team members enjoy collaborating with each other, share creativity, and are enthusiastic about doing their best work as a team.

Teams that are highly motivated and positive are not only fun to be part of, but they also accomplish far more than teams that are struggling with morale. Research shows that positivity can make a real difference to people’s success and well-being. This is why it’s so important that, as a leader, you strive to build a positive team.

In this class participants will discuss both the people skills and technical skill needed to help make their teams more cohesive, motivated and productive.

Course Objectives:

  • Explore the four stages of team development
  • Characteristics of effective teams
  • How to inspire commitment and teamwork 
  • How to create an environment of caring and cooperation
  • How to deal with team dynamics and conflict
