A Motivation-Based Framework For Unlocking Team Performance
Collaboration is indispensable for organizational health and success. Unfortunately, in an effort to improve collaboration, too many organizations turn to conventional team building exercises like ropes course or drumming circles. Such exercises can be fun – for some. But the return-on-investment is typically negative and they can leave results-focused employees and managers alike cynical about team effectiveness efforts.
George Mason University, in partnership with Corporate Collaboration Resources, has created a custom Executive Development program that uses new insights from the frontier of team collaboration knowledge to provide managers and senior executives with an industry-proven and research supported frameworks to truly develop high functioning teams.
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be able to:
- Build understanding of conventional team building approaches and their limitations
- Develop a working knowledge of the Leading Collaboration framework, how it’s different and how it functions
- Develop the ability to apply the principles of the framework to diagnosing team issues
- Develop the ability to apply the practices and tools that are part of the Leading Collaboration framework
- Develop a capacity to plan for and design team interventions using the Leading Collaboration framework
