Managing Teams Effectively (Online)

The rise of technology and an ever-changing workplace mean that an employee’s ability to work in a high-performing team environment grows in importance by the day. But teamwork doesn’t just happen — good teams require managers who have vision and practiced skills. Managing effective teams today requires laying the groundwork for how team members and the wider organization will be successful.

Managing Teams Effectively (Online) instructor Steve King (author of "Six Conversations" and "Brag, Worry, Wonder, Bet") says "Managing a team is not the same thing as managing individuals who make up a team." So how does a manager bridge this divide between individual performance and team performance? According to King's third book "Alignment, Process, Relationships: A Simple Guide to Team Management" - it turns out they construct that bridge on three simple building blocks: getting everybody on the same page (team alignment), clarifying roles and decision rights (team process), and building trust (team relationships).

Managing Teams Effectively (Online) is an eight week program focused on equipping those who lead teams with the knowledge and tools necessary to accurately diagnose problems; manage group dynamics, coach team and individual behaviors to improve performance; and understand how to communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges, and defuse team conflict.

Pre-Work and Post-Work: The eight modules may consist of assessments, discussion forum exercises, videos, and/or reading assignments. Additionally, each module requires post-work application action planning, exercises, and/or self-reflection. Please allow two to three hours to complete these items each week.

This program uses Group Styles Inventory™. Teams identify behaviors that are enabling, and those that are undermining, effective teamwork.
