CSAC Institute – Building and Maintaining a Team Environment (371)
Deployment and leadership of high performance teams
Counties use teams as a method to get work done. Teams can be project-focused, operational, interdepartmental or inter-governmental. It takes a certain organizational culture to support teams. This course examines the culture and attributes of high-performing teams in the public sector. Strategies, tools and resources are shared along with team leadership practices, and how to transition to a team culture. Participants examine the group dynamics required for team success, define team responsibilities and accountability, how to evaluate team performance against mission, and the leadership practices to lead and sponsor teams.
