First we will discuss what sets a team apart from other forms of getting things done. Teams do certain things extremely well but they are not suited for all tasks. How to tell the difference and decide whether or not to use a team approach will be explored.
Once you decide to build a team, how do you do it? The planning, criteria and process of forming a team will be explained. Clearly defined goals, standards and measurements are critical. You will see why it is so important to set clearly defined rules of engagement right up front.
Selection of team members will make or break the team. You will get tools, guidelines and methods for implementing a selection process. You will also receive practical and systematic ways to get everyone on the same score of achievement. Everyone has to know the rules and objectives as well as the contributions of each team member.
Measurement tools and techniques will be discussed and specific practices that you will want to incorporate in your team to keep everyone on track and still generate innovation. Simple techniques to build momentum, increase output plus design the tools, systems and indicators to facilitate and understand how to measure results.
Special emphasis will be made on reading, understand and influencing people. A team is made up of a diverse group of people. The leaders job is to manage and lead each individual and the group. We will show you how to do exactly that.
