Welcome to 30 Bird's Leadership: Developing Effective Teams course! It takes great leadership to build an effective team. Team building is essential in any business. However, building a great team is easier said than done. Research indicates that as many as sixty percent of work teams fail for a wide variety of reasons. You can't just assemble a group of people and expect them all to function flawlessly together. Leading people brings many challenges since individuals that make up a team all have different values, mindsets, and skills. Expecting people to just get along is not a realistic expectation. Even the best leaders have problems getting everyone on the same page. Leaders must develop a keen understanding of the individuals, their strengths and weaknesses, what motivates them, and how they can work together to accomplish a shared goal.
About the series
Professional skills—such as the ability to manage work schedules and communicate effectively with customers—are personal and interpersonal proficiencies that don’t depend on technical knowledge but are crucial for successful and efficient functioning of any organization. 30 Bird Media is thrilled to announce our brand new line of engaging, relevant, and straight-to-the-point professional development courseware. From the very start we knew it was important not to simply force this new and different content into our existing IT-specific format. Each professional development course comprises an Instructor Guide, a PowerPoint slide deck highlighting important points, and a Student Guide. Taken together, these training tools empower you to teach these concepts effectively in any classroom or workshop setting.
For more information and access to the PowerPoint files, please contact your 30 Bird sales representative or call (888) 330-9071.
