MANAGER MOMENTS: How to Build a High-Performing Team delivers short blasts of practical wisdom to help managers understand the natural stages of a team and what they can do to take their team to a higher level. Related topics are grouped into bite-sized programs. Realistic team scenarios are combined with host narrative that reinforces the learning takeaways.
THIS SERIES OF 7 VIDEOS INCLUDES:
~ How to Assess Team Strengths and Needs (7:15 minutes) -- Is your team strong? Or, is it troubled, stalled, or simply going through the motions? How do you know? This module uses the characteristics of a high-performing team to help managers assess team strengths and needs—the first step toward building a high-performing team.
~ How to Build Team Unity (6:40 minutes) -- In addition to being of great benefit to the organization, a unified team provides employees with some of their most basic emotional needs: the need to Achieve, the need to Belong, and the need to Contribute. This module shows you how to maintain a balance of these ABCs and build team unity.
~ How to Diagnose Team Problems (7:33 minutes) -- Is your team in a slump? Is there a lack of energy or enthusiasm?

~ How to Improve Team Communication (6:40 minutes) -- How do you share bad news with your team? How do you communicate good news…or a change in the company’s vision?

This module provides practical advice on three critical areas of communication that managers must focus on to build a high-performing team.
~ How to Mediate a Dispute (7:30 minutes) -- Every once in a while, conflict erupts on a team and employees are unable to resolve it satisfactorily without their manager’s help. No one likes conflict and the idea of getting in the middle of an emotionally charged dispute can cause some trepidation.

~ Understanding the Stages of a Team (6:33 minutes) -- If your team is currently high performing, it may not stay that way. Teams are always in flux. They naturally go in and out of certain stages depending on varying circumstances. So, what can you do to manage the developmental stages of your team?
