What you'll learn in this leadership training:

The well-being of our employees, students, clients, instructors, and guests is our number one priority here at General Assembly. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and are adjusting delivery of our programs.

Due to the current health concerns, all GA short-form events, workshops & bootcamps will temporarily be held online - including this one.

Registered students will be notified 24 hours in advance of this program with information on how to log in to the Zoom Meeting Room and other tools you’ll need for the session. Registration for this class will close 2 hours prior to the session start in order to allow all students ample opportunity to have the technology enabled.

Effective teamwork is a cornerstone of successful operations at any company. Using ideas from project management, Agile and sports management, we will cover best practices for building and leading your team.

This workshop will first address team set-up, thinking carefully about team design, structure and environment. We’ll then dive into team dynamics, exploring how to maintain a positive attitude within the team and how to address communication breakdowns. Finally we’ll wrap with an eye towards continuous process improvement. You’ll leave with a whole toolkit of strategies to get the most out of your team!

Takeaways

  • Strategies for team set-up and team member selection
  • Review of key leadership qualities
  • Tips for what can make a team thrive in a fast-paced environment
  • Best practices for communicating with your team
  • Assessing and addressing communication breakdowns
  • How to improve overall team dynamics over time

Preparation

  • Please come to class with an example for a specific team that you are looking to manage.
  • You will need access to a laptop or computer with a working webcam and microphone as well as a strong internet connection.
  • This course will occur completely online using Zoom and Slack.
  • Course set up information will be emailed to all students signed up around 24 hours before (and again an hour before) your course launches.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
