Why You Should Attend This Course

In looking at the current organization trends, one often realizes the existence of a few observable facts : expanding conglomerates either through merger and acquisition, shrinking market shares, companies downsizing or rightsizing, the myriad issues and problems faced, to name a few. Facing this diversity in challenges, management needs to go back to basics, that is, how do I get my team to do all these wonderful things?

The formation of teams addresses the notion of managing the whole by managing the parts. However, a major stumbling block may be present – the lack of know how & skills among the leaders and team members in managing teams as mentioned, and in playing the right team roles. It is with this broad intention that the program was designed.
