Managing Teams


How You Will Benefit

Although the goal of teamwork is to generate multiple ideas, spilt up assignments, and build on relationships, teams can go haywire without enough direction and focus. It is important to understand the dynamics of the team, what the team hopes to accomplish, and any strengths and weaknesses individuals on the team may have.
In a Business Insider study, 39% of employees surveyed responded that people in their own organization don’t collaborate enough. Furthermore, about 75% of employers rate teamwork and collaboration as “very important.” When teams do get together, 97% of employees and executives surveyed believe that lack focus on a team directly impacts the outcome of a task or project.
This course is designed to teach team managers how to delegate tasks to team members, how to balance team members’ strengths and weakness, how to handle different team member roles, and how to development team goals and organization. As a result, teams will operate with clearer objectives, will communicate more effectively, meet goals more productively, and have fewer instances of discordance.
