Advanced Teamwork

Build High-Achieving Teams


The ability to build and lead high-achieving teams is an essential skill for leaders at all levels, and in any organization. Not even the most talented leaders can achieve great results on their own.

In this program, you will learn the key principles and specific actions to build and promote teamwork across your organization. You will also learn how to measure the characteristics of great teamwork versus poor teamwork, what causes teams to succeed, and how to avoid the obstacles to building highly effective teams. Advanced Teamwork focuses on practical methods you can use to promote innovation and collaboration while getting work done.

You will learn to:

  • Assess the current level of teamwork on each of your teams.
  • Determine 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 produce ineffective teams.
  • Identify and work effectively with weak links and “teambusters.”
