Leading High-Performing Teams

Ann Arbor, MI, 10 Nov - 12 Nov 2014

Program Description

Unleash the power of your most talented teams - globally, locally, or virtually. Learn best practices to motivate and enable your teams to achieve sustainable high performance with fewer resources.

You'll explore key things you can do in the critical roles you play as a team leader: Visionary, designer, coach, coalition builder, and ambassador. As you interact with faculty experts and program participants, you'll learn which behaviors do and don't lead to high-performing teams.

You'll analyze the common pitfalls many talented leaders make and explore techniques for leading teams regardless of functional area, organizational level, geography, or industry.

You'll emerge with a roadmap to take your teams' performance to the next level, a deeper understanding of your personal team leadership  strengths and weaknesses, and insight into the special needs of diverse, global, and virtual teams.

Program Highlights:

• The highly engaging and interactive nature throughout the program fosters your skills and your networking with high-level peers.

• Simulations exploring real-world examples of best and worst team leadership practices give you new tools for maximizing team performance.

Leadership self-assessments and diagnostics for evaluating team performance help you reflect on your effectiveness.
