Creating a Winning Team ASSESSMENTS AND RESOURCES:
Many of the angers and frustrations that we experience as members or leaders of a team are a result of broken agreements, unmet expectations and failure to get what we want. When someone does not do what they said they would, or only does a mediocre job, our expectations are not met and we feel angry, disappointed or cheated. Trust levels decline and satisfaction disappears. One of the main reasons this happens is the team is not aligned in their goals and one or more members is in a dysfunctional state. Through group interaction and lecture, participants will learn how to deal with the symptoms of a dysfunctional team and the causes for the breakdowns - and how to transform it into a winning team in a way that empowers everyone involved.
