How to build a high-performing team

Teams Module

Have you ever worked on a great team? What made it a great team? This new Management 3.0 Module is all about teams. It looks into how a team can improve, how trust between team members can be built, and what makes teams successful.

Is there a silver bullet to helping any team become successful? Probably not. However, you as a manager, the team leader, the one who cares, can set up the conditions to increase success. As a team leader and manager, you are the gardener: If you prepare the soil well before you plant the trees, the rate of success will increase.

What will you learn?
