Overview

Government organizations are more collaborative than ever, yet teamwork today looks much different than it did before. As a team leader, you may now find yourself leading teams in virtual spaces, different time zones, and home-office distractions. Your team members may be facing more than just work challenges and could really use compassion and care. How can you maximize your skills to not only achieve results, but also strengthen your team?

This course will help you develop fundamental skills to be an effective team leader and a team member. You’ll learn the stages of team development, teamwork strategies, and collaboration tools to effectively lead your team and reach organizational goals. You’ll also explore different ways of promoting a facilitative culture in your workplace, and how empowering your teams to exercise decision-making at all levels creates an ideal environment for team building.

In this course, you’ll learn and practice skills not only foundational to teamwork, but to other levels of leadership in government. You’ll build your capacity to foster high-performing teams by:

  • Identifying how your own styles, strengths, and behaviors affect performance in a team.
  • Exploring different communication styles, facilitative behaviors, and the roles and responsibilities of team members and leaders.
  • Learning about team dysfunctions, building trust, managing conflict, and encouraging accountability.
  • Improving your team-building abilities through practical application and feedback.
  • Acquiring a deeper understanding of teams, including a focus on team dynamics and effective team processes.
  • Learning how to coach for higher performance.
