Seminar Details
Teams are one of the essential building blocks of contemporary organizations. Organizations are looking to teams to make some of their toughest decisions or to develop some of their most daring ideas. Although teams are ubiquitous, they rarely perform up to their potential. This session will help you address the issue of underperformance and enable you to become a team leader whose members will give you their all and deliver more than they could as individuals.  You’ll also learn how to facilitate the inner workings of your team, identify process improvement opportunities and help your team go from good to great.

  • Determining the best team type, composition, and structure for a given desired outcome
  • What makes teams effective and how teams get derailed
  • Establishing goals, processes and principles as a critical baseline for team performance
  • Three basics of team process design:  context, structure and process

  • Make better decisions about when and where to utilize teams, and how to build them
  • Increased buy-in and commitment from team members
  • Stronger team performance and member capacity

*The current healthcare situation requires that the Olin Business School provide participants with learning conditions that protect the health of participants, business school staff, and faculty. As a result, Olin faculty are prepared to deliver their sessions either live, or virtually, as regulations and circumstances permit. If conditions prohibit face-to-face coursework, we will switch affected seminars to virtual delivery via the Zoom platform
