Leadership doesn't take place in a vacuum. In fact, some experts argue that the most effective approach to leadership is one calibrated to respond to the specific needs of not only the context within which we're working, but also - perhaps more importantly - of the team we are leading. Sometimes this can seem straightforward, intuitive even. But at other times, it can be really, really complicated.
In this course, we're going to shift gears from identifying your own personal leadership mindset in order to consider how that mindset intersects with and furthers the development of a successful, dynamic, and high-performing dream team. We'll spend some time exploring some of the essential qualities of high performing teams, discuss the steps and stages of team development, and look at ways to support each team member's unique talents, interests, perspectives, and growth.
