Seminar Details
This is a 2-day seminar and your registration is for both days.

During this 2-day seminar, you will examine the basic types of teams, how teams function and how, as business leaders, you can get the most from your teams. You will also gain an understanding of the conditions under which team formation is advisable and how to lay the foundation for high team performance.

When managed skillfully, disagreement among team members becomes an engine for learning and high performance.
