Challenges of Leadership in Teams

July 17-21, 2017


The goal of this course is to prepare participants to handle the various challenges they will face in leading teams throughout their life cycle. The course supports self-reflection and skill development by creating changes in each participant's internal dialogue through interactive role-playing, self-assessment measures, group discussions, exercises, and interactive lectures. These activities will enhance each participant's development of their own unique leadership capabilities.

Leadership styles are uniquely individual and situational. Participants will learn to use their new capabilities in a team environment and to select the most effective management style for a specific situation. They will also learn the competency level required to improve task performance. As leaders, participants will learn to successfully support their teams by reducing uncertainty and to increase collaboration by providing structure and developing trust during the life cycle of a project.Individual leadership development plans will be prepared to enable participants to internalize improvements and become more effective without the stress of miscommunication and distrust. Once their development plan is enacted, each leader will be able to form teams that are quickly organized with individual team members who think collaboratively. Self-assessment, learning how to form a team, maintaining the team, reducing uncertainty, and becoming a good negotiator through using your emotional intelligence and leadership competencies are the focus of Challenges of Leadership in Teams.
