PROJ_PMI 204-0 : Developing People and Teams


Description

As a project manager, it is part of your job to work with a team to achieve a specified outcome. Whether it is an existing team or a cross-functional team put together for this project, working with teams has its advantages and challenges. How can you best manage the strengths of your team to reach its goals? How can you help prepare a team for the developmental stages they will encounter while working together? In Developing People and Teams, students will look at individual development including coaching, mentoring and motivation theory. Team development will be explored through the topics of facilitation and collaboration. Participants will also have the opportunity to assess their personal style of conflict resolution.
