The Team Equation: Managing Teams That Deliver

Video Description

How do you build and manage a team that works collaboratively, innovatively, and effectively, and delivers a great project? Great teams and great teamwork don’t just happen: Great team leaders learn how to build a team, manage it, and make sure they know how to “close the deal” when the finish line is near. In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, team-building expert Mary Shapiro—author of the HBR Guide to Leading Teams—shares proven best practices for effective team building. Shapiro discusses how to move through the stages of team building, providing structured conversations and activities she has developed from her more than 20 years of experience consulting with teams. She also draws on real-life examples to show how team leaders have applied the advice in a wide range of situations to produce better teams that deliver better results.
