In this course, organizational alchemist Luke Angel explains how to build an efficient, high-performing team from the ground up. At its essence, a team is a system of human relationships. In the process of building a team, any leader or manager needs to understand not only the needs of individual team members, but also how those individuals are affected when working in groups. Effective teams emerge from an understanding of these dynamics. Luke Angel helps you understand your leadership style, and walks through the different stages of team development. He goes into different types of teams—natural or self-directed, cross-functional, and virtual. He also shows how to establish a team mission and how to run successful meetings.
In this course you will learn:
Or is your reaction more like, oh no, I've been selected to lead a team, what am I supposed to do? Well in this course, you'll learn how to build an effective and efficient team from the ground up.
By starting with a strong foundation, you'll be able to weather the inevitable challenges that so many teams face.
I've included team building activities to improve communication and relationships and there are also worksheets on creating an action plan for your team and much more.

It goes without saying that as a leader, your behavior and demeanor will be judged so it's helpful for you to understand how you appear to others or how you show up.
Knowing how you show up to your team is as crucial to success as knowing what to do with the team.
The best thing you can do to improve your chances for success is to become more aware of what drives you and your own decision making.
Several sources name high self awareness as one of the strongest predictors of leadership success.
He identified four distinct phases of team development: forming, storming, norming, and performing.
Let's start with the forming stage.
Here the group begins to look and act like a team with an identity, maybe even a nickname.
Because a shared vision has been achieved, team morale is likely to be high at this point.
A performing team is characterized by noticeable harmony among the members, high levels of productivity, effective conflict management, appropriate pivoting, and maximum development of potential, both of the group and the individuals in the group.
If the stages were factors in an equation, then a plus b plus c would equal d, with d being the performing stage.
