Many work environments are increasingly complex and uncertain, requiring high functioning teams. Effective teamwork and collaboration needs to be cultivated and given regular attention. This workshop helps team leaders develop shared leadership among team members and provides concrete tools for improving collaboration between team members.
This workshop is designed specifically for team leaders. It is one of MCN’s most popular trainings and consistently receives high evaluations. You will receive with tools and ideas that you can immediately implement.

Topics include:

  • Engaged team characteristics
  • Co-creating effective team agreements
  • Cultivating trust among team members
  • Navigating conflict in teams
  • Supervisor role in fostering engaged teams

Learning Objectives:

  • Increase understanding of the team as a separate entity that needs care and attention
  • Acquire methods of creating shared accountability within teams
  • Learn latest research about what creates engaged teams
  • Gain skills in airing and resolving conflicts within a team

Note: We also strongly recommend you take Practical Leadership 1.0: Cultivating Thriving Supervisory Relationships. While no material is repeated between the two courses, the curriculum of Practical Leadership 1.0 and 2.0 complements each other.
