Teams and Teamwork

Successful teams provide a competitive advantage, an edge that most organizations hope to achieve but many never accomplish. Such teams rely on more than just group discussion, sharing of information, debate, and best-practice performance standards. This course focuses on how successful teams work through challenges, support each other, and exhibit interdependence. You will learn how members become mutually accountable as they strive toward common goals and achieve beyond what each person is capable of achieving alone.

The intent of this course is to help you:

  • Recognize the stages that all teams go through as a group of individuals strive to become an effective team
  • Determine the role that leaders play at each stage of team development
  • Identify the five dysfunctions of a team and how a team can overcome each one to become a highly functional team
  • Describe the role that leaders play in guiding their teams through dysfunctional team behavior
  • Create a positive team environment that meets the needs of the team, motivates and rewards them, improves team behavior, and helps them set and achieve reasonable and obtainable objectives
