Leading Effective Teams: Team Leader Training
The use of An ASCD Study Guide for Leading Effective Meetings, Teams, and Work Groups in Districts and Schools has inspired this two-day workshop. Team leaders will assess the current state of their teams and through facilitated discussions, identify the optimal state that their teams operate within and how to keep their teams in that optimal state through effective team leader training.
Participants will identify roles their teams require, how to professionally develop team members to assume those roles and the communication strategies essential to aligning team members with the team’s mission. This team leader training workshop will include a team roles assessment, communication activities and role-plays of common scenarios that managers must mitigate to ensure optimal performance from their team.
