 Description: One may be the loneliest number, but it is sure easier to manage. Teams may increase productivity and bring more diverse perspectives and well-rounded solutions, but they come with a unique set of challenges as well. Every team member must play a role — and embrace it. They must also share the same vision and goals. Of course, there is always the risk of miscommunication and interpersonal communication that can distract teams from the real mission. This course, which is grounded in decades of research, examines what separates successful teams from dysfunctional ones. More than identifying the ailments, it provides strategies for reinforcing and rewarding the right behaviors and building a cohesive unit founded on shared mission and mutual respect.

Review: “Very good framework to understand and build teams but also with very actionable tools in a day-by-day job reality.” For additional reviews, click here.
