Building a world class team from vision to revision
An organization’s success depends on the one resource that is a fully functioning response and in an anticipatory state of readiness, its people. The team that must be formed, and able to work together and advance the levels of talent and expertise requires leadership which knows what a world class team looks like, sounds like, how they communicate and most of all know why they are the team.
Team building is an essential practice for the program manager, requiring a strategic adaptation not only at the beginning of the project, but continuously re-evaluating, exemplifying the best of the team, cultivating the potential and managing the team dynamic.
The practice has essential elements, starting with vision. Too little value is placed on vision by teams and this presentation will make the point of vision as a more tangible and self guiding focus for the team.
A second team building element is the built in overhead of team effort to efficiently perform but to also prepare themselves and rely on the program investment in the team to extend their talent as outreach and demonstration.
A third element among more that will be covered in this presentation is the team makeup, considering both talent and personality. The techniques for position announcement, interviews, expectations, evaluations and feedback, and team structure will be discussed as leadership tasks towards building the world class team.
You are invited to examine your leadership role as a team builder and the practices to make yourself the most effective enabler for your program’s success.
