At some point, every team feels a disconnect in collaboration and communication, but if it's a lot of the time, then you and your team need a road map to improve the process and get better results.
A sports coach will try to merge individual skills and strengths to show players that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. When a person's focus changes from 'individual behaviour' to 'contribution to a goal', then anything becomes possible.
Whether you're a department, loosely knit workgroup or an existing team, this workshop will take you through an important set of processes and tools to develop essential team skills.
This course will help you:
Understand the key role of WorkingSm@rt to enhance team performance
Set up Microsoft Teams and establish rules of engagement
Maximize the ability to effectively collaborate across and within Teams
Understand the best practices for communicating while using Microsoft Teams
Understand how to manage both operational and project tasks
