Leading High Performing Teams

Program Overview

Leaders of high performing teams generate energy, create focus, and ignite momentum in their organizations.  These leaders guide their teams to become high performing. Their teams have a shared mission, purpose, and strategy, and they work together to make decisions and execute. They also have that hard-to-find alchemy that creates cohesion, collaboration and esprit de corps. Their teams put on their enterprise hats, make decisions for the whole, and work together as one.

How do you become the leader of high performing teams that are known for driving execution? Leading High Performing Teams is a course for leaders of businesses, functional, and project teams who want their teams to deliver above and beyond. We know today in organizations there is an urgent need to take team work to a higher level, and create networks of teams working together and sharing information. As organizations move away from traditional, hierarchical ways of operating, the leaders of teams need to get their teams to work faster, break down silos, and communicate across the businesses, time zones and cultures, to get things done.
