All that we do in organizations today is currently done in teams. Many teams fail because they do not work together, people are disengaged, information is not shared with members of the team, wires get crisscrossed, and time and money are misused. Top performing teams can accomplish more prominent levels of investment, participation, and coordinated effort because of individuals believing each other, sharing a solid feeling of team personality, and believing in their adequacy as a team.
You will learn to:
1. Establish team effectiveness through team emotional intelligence
2. Develop ways of helping others on your team develop their emotional intelligence
3. Identify steps to develop a strong emotional culture
