Managing Team Dynamics

September 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm EDT


Certificate Program: Executive Leadership 


Organizational leaders and managers are responsible for ensuring that staff members work effectively and efficiently together to deliver an organization’s programs and services. On any given day, though, there will be hiccups and challenges that disrupt the flow of work and impede a team from performing well. Circumstances are always shifting around and within teams as well – team members may be reassigned; staff may come and go; external pressures impact demand; new programs may be launched; current services may be reduced; etc. Throughout such potential changes, leaders and managers must still keep their teams running smoothly. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to manage team dynamics in an ever-changing organizational context. We’ll work from theory to practice, covering the stages of team development, and discuss how individuals leading teams can identify where teams are and what they need, resolve potential dysfunction, and improve overall performance.

As a result of this workshop, participants should feel comfortable:

  • Summarizing the stages of team development
  • Analyzing potential factors impacting/disrupting team alignment and performance
  • Discussing how and why teams do or do not perform well and the leader’s role
  • Exploring possible management solutions to team dysfunction
  • Sharing with others the importance of paying attention to and addressing team dynamics within an organization
