High Performing Teams

This course helps managers understand a number of important components that make teams perform.  Each participant will use their own team as a case study and work through a number of exercises to help clearly diagnose opportunities and take steps to improve performance across the team.  In addition to the online self-studies and application exercises, each participant will attend two small group coaching sessions with a certified TandemCoach to discuss challenges and identify tangible actions to take that will improve their team’s performance.
