It starts with the leader at the top: your state, your expectations, your structures, your emotional regulation and how you set the context. Today's teams must do more with less. High performing teams need members with technical competency and intelligence—but that is not enough. Motivation, engagement and productivity happens through effective collaboration based on team dynamics. On a team, the whole is never the sum of its parts, but is greater or lesser depending on how well the individuals work together. The leader has a huge impact on the emotional state of the team and its ability to work together. Who the leader is, and how the leader is presented on a consistent basis, can have dramatic effect on leading the team through change, fostering creativity, innovation, and job satisfaction. Learn key facilitation skills that will engage your team. Never have a boring meeting again.
