Improving Team Effectiveness®

Leadership and Team Development

LT220 | Length: 1 day | Credits: 7 PDUs | Talent Triangle – Leadership


Think about the first work team you were on. You probably quickly discovered that each person had a unique way of doing things. Sometimes team differences are easily accepted and laughed about, and may even complement each other. But too frequently teams find that those differences can also cause confusion, stagnation, or frustration. Only when people have a framework to make sense of their differences can they learn what to expect from others and the best way to get what the team needs. This program uses the DiSC ® framework to address three of the most common challenges that teams face: motivation, conflict, and communication. Participants learn simple, intuitive ways to make lasting improvements in a team’s effectiveness.

  • Appreciate the diverse needs and preferences of each DiSC ® style
