Tuesday, May 2 –  Monday, May 29, 2023.

  • Do your team meetings feel like a group of individuals who aren't making progress together?
  • Do you find that too much time is spent talking about why something happened or looking for blame instead of discussing ways to move forward?
  • Do you feel that team members spend more time protecting their turf than working together?
  • Does "groupthink" instead of constructive conflict dominate your team decision making?

Whether working with customers on a public desk, participating in a short term project to improve workflow or meeting weekly with your team to alter services to accommodate shrinking budgets, work involves interactions with groups of people to get things done. This course teaches you how to become an effective team player by understanding the basic principles of team formation, group dynamics and how to make decisions while having all members of the team feel heard.

We’ll cover topics such as team roles, group dynamics, team agreements, and how to make decisions while having all members of the team feel heard. You’ll understand the all-too-human reasons it’s challenging to work on a team and ways to navigate those challenges. You’ll leave this course with practical tools for team improvements and the ability to be a great team player. Whether leading a team or being a member, improve your performance on any team you are on in the future.
