What would be the impact if all your work teams were high performing teams? In this course, participants will learn the two dimensions of high performing teams and the fourteen competencies that contribute to them. Through interactive activities, discover how to diagnose and address challenging competencies and leverage team strengths. We will also discuss toxic behaviors that undermine a team's performance and how to align actions and outcomes to team purpose.
