Through simulations and activities, participants will learn both what gets in the way of teamwork, and what fosters teamwork.  Exercises demonstrate how to align people around common goals, and clarify roles among team members.  Through video, discussion and group exercises, attendees will practice team processes, communication and decision-making. Participants learn how to build an environment that fosters creativity from all team members. Tools are provided for soliciting feedback from their teams on how well they are performing, and each student is encouraged to create an Action Plan for improvement. This workshop is full.

When you follow an effective process for interviewing and selection, the chances are greatly increased that a good hire will be the result.

Persuasive Coaching & Influencing

June 26th 2019 08:00 am to 4:00 pm at Golden Valley Training Center

It takes more than a title and some authority to effectively lead people; ask anyone newly promoted into a leadership role! And it’s even harder without the title. This workshop takes team leaders to the next level by showing them how to finesse their way to team success, navigating the politics and personalities that are sometimes roadblocks to success. Participants will understand and develop the influence and persuasion skills that make them more effective as team leaders.
