Being an Effective Team Member

Group Training + View more dates & times


Effective teams require more than just technical competence; they require strong team members who truly perform well. Individuals who are team-oriented, reliable, communicate well, and show respect to one another are valuable members of teams seeking success. Individuals become effective team members by showing commitment to both teammate and team goals and by jointly solving problems. Individuals who become effective team members ultimately encourage and enhance a team’s synergy, causing it to become more than the sum of its parts. In this course, participants identify old, non-productive habits and replace them with the proven habits of effective team members. The course gives participants the skills for making a profound and immediate impact on daily productivity. Participants learn these skills through a variety of individual and team exercises, including role-play exercises and the use of several experiential learning instruments. In addition, participants create a personal action plan for transferring learned concepts to their respective roles. Ultimately, participants benefit both personally and professionally with the methods taught in this course.
