In this course, you will create a strategy to turn a work group into a high-performing team by evaluating challenges and applying techniques to generate positive team outcomes. Teams are essential to the modern organization, but most never reach their potential. Co-workers miscommunicate, and groups struggle to adapt to changes in the market or their organizations. When teams lack self-awareness about these challenges, performance suffers. Studies are increasingly highlighting the important role that psychological safety plays at work. One of these studies was performed by Google, who spent two years and interviewed 180 different teams, eventually identifying psychological safety as the key characteristic of exceptional teams. Well, just imagine if your participants were better able to create a culture that means employees can:

  • Feel confident that they can speak up on issues of importance
  • Take risks without feeling insecure or embarrassed
  • Highlight potential dangers before they become issues
  • Share ideas and opportunities for improvement

In this course, you will learn how to build your team, improve teamwork and collaboration, and sustain team performance through continuous learning and improvement. Specifically, you will learn best practices for aligning individual and team goals. After completing this course, you will acquire a set of tools and practices that enable you to effectively set up, run, evaluate, and continuously improve your team. Such insights will both make you a more effective team leader but also a standout contributor in team settings.
