Building an Effective Team

COURSE OVERVIEW

For most of us, teamwork is a part of everyday life. Whether it’s at home, in the community, or at work, we are often expected to be a functional part of a high performing team.

As a supervisor, you are expected to not only build your team, but also to continually motivate and develop the team to work independently to solve problems and drive improvement.

This course introduces the principles of building high performance teams using the Tuckman Model (Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing).
