About the course
This program will develop and refine the skills essential for leading a high performance team. Emphasis is placed on the leader's role in effectively enhancing total team functionality and maximum team productivity. Individual communication styles will be assessed and examined to identify the most appropriate communication style to use with your team. This will be an active experience. In addition to receiving individual assessment information, participants will be exposed to team concepts, theories, and skill development through the use of lectures, videos, readings, role plays, case studies, and discussions. This course has been constructed to maximize opportunity to improve both knowledge and practical skills in leading a team and being a team player. (This is a great course to attend immediately following PetroSkills' course titled: Leading and Managing Others.) In addition to this program designed specifically for Team Leaders, PetroSkills has a 2-day course titled: Team Building for Intact teams.
