Implementing truly effective teams is more difficult than often considered. In this webinar, we will take a realistic and practical look at how an organization's leaders can foster successful teams. The challenges of team-building are central to leadership in general, including: clarifying vision and purpose, taking a whole-systems view, facilitating constructive interaction, motivating performance, assessing progress, and skillful problem-solving. I will share real-life case studies; tips and tools; and resources for further learning.
