Facilitating Virtual and On-site Teams

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.

Overview

Knowing how to facilitate maturing on-site and virtual teams is critical, because it is at this time that teams typically reach peak performance. Mature teams begin to perform independently, and it’s important that the leader’s role changes to that of a facilitator.
This course will cover the facilitation of on-site and virtual teams as teams mature. It will introduce the development stages of maturing teams and provide strategies uniquely designed for addressing problems that arise during this phase. The course will also present techniques for strengthening your team and for evaluating team effectiveness. Finally, it will offer strategies for sustaining high performance, including techniques for boosting creativity and motivating through shared leadership roles. By understanding how a maturing team develops and knowing how to apply specific strategies during these stages, you will be able to facilitate a high-performance on-site or virtual team.
