Advanced Teamwork

Build High-Achieving Teams


Most of us recognize when there is a lack of teamwork, but how can we accurately describe the presence of effective teamwork? In this program, you will learn the key principles and specific actions required to build great teams. You will also learn how to measure the characteristics of great teamwork versus poor teamwork, what causes teams to succeed, and how to overcome the obstacles to building high-achieving teams.

By teaching you how to establish a shared mission, an environment of peak performance, and clear goals and responsibilities for each of your team members, Advanced Teamwork will guide you toward becoming a leader your people can trust in with enthusiasm. This invites innovation and collaboration to flourish in your company, leading to exponential growth for all involved.

You will learn to:

  • Assess your team’s current level of teamwork.
  • Gain insight into why some teams succeed and other teams fail.
  • Evaluate when teamwork is most necessary.
  • Lead your team past the most debilitating obstacles to effective teamwork.
  • Develop personal skills that will help you increase teamwork with those you influence.
  • Reduce the traits that result in ineffective teams.
  • Identify weak links and “teambusters,” and learn how to work with them.
  • Build teamwork in other areas of your life, including your family team.
