Developing and Managing Highly Effective Teams

Developing and Managing Highly Effective Teams introduces emerging leaders to some crucial must-knows and must do’s as a new leader. Learn about: the shift from the old paradigm of managing to a more collaborative and integrated leadership approach; the distinctions between ‘managing’ and ‘leading’ mindsets and behaviors; various conversation strategies to connect with your team; leading with a strengths-oriented approach; and team-building strategies to take your people to higher levels of engagement, performance and overall team efficacy.

Ideal for emerging and aspiring leaders as well as more experienced leaders who want to hone their leadership efficacy further.

A great course for gaining ideas about how to leverage a strengths program, such as Strengths Finder. I think this would be most helpful if you have already participated in such a program.
