As a leader, does it ever feel like all you do is herd cats? If this happens more times than you like, then this 2-day Master Class is for you! This course is for leaders, facilitators, and coaches who want to be able to diagnosis and correct the causes of group dysfunction. Put another way; this class is about how leaders can create high functioning teams. Behind all the buzz words like creativity, innovation, and crucial conversations, are high functioning teams. Everyone would agree that high functioning teams are critical, but few leaders have the distinctions to both observe and then positively intervene in groups to move them from lower levels of functioning to higher levels of productivity and effectiveness.
The sessions are very practical and focused on skill building. The presenters will use a combination of lecture, demonstration, role-playing and practice.
Steve Zuieback and Michael Grinder have spent several decades consulting, facilitating and training international leaders. In this 2-day session, you will have the benefit of their shared experience in working with teams and organizations from around the world.
Steve is a facilitative expert – Michael is a pioneer in the arena of group dynamics and management. By attending the session, you will receive their new book, From Cat Herding to Leadership.
