Understanding Team Dynamics

There are two roles that a team member plays within the project environment.One role is the part that they play to deliver the project product, service and the second is the role they play as a team member.This half-day course will help participants focus on the “soft skill” side of being a team member.The instructor will guide participants through a self-assessment instrument that focuses on the Relationship Awareness Theory® which looks at motivation and behavior under two conditions:  when things are going well and when conflict arises.   This self-awareness, as well as being able to identify motivations and behaviors in others, will aid participants in becoming more productive team members.
