A team cannot be successful unless each aspect of the team is functioning properly. This module teaches participants how to manage their own workload in order to accomplish team goals. Often functions are dependent upon each other, and it is the leader’s job to understand the status of each aspect of the team’s aggregate effort, and to support struggling functions as necessary.
During the communications phase, attendees will learn how to build buy-in and understanding among the group in order to instill a greater sense of purpose in the people performing the individual functions. Good leaders know that they should share information with their team members when it is appropriate to do so.
Understanding where one stands in relation to the overall effort leads to better work performance, which leads to decreased costs and increased sales. When participants experience this first-hand they learn the importance of teamwork, individual effort, and clear communication. Attendees will switch roles throughout the exercise to experience different perspectives.
