Leading your group to success when you are not in charge (yet)
Time: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
It happens everywhere... put a group of smart, talented, or even brilliant people in a room together, and coordinating basic decisions and deliverable results is like pulling teeth.
In this class, we will go over some essential tools that you can see, practice, and apply to move action forward within any group environment where people need to coordinate action. This is especially relevant for people in technology where coordination and complexity go hand-in-hand.
If you are a manager, or just want to practice greater leadership within your teams as an individual contributor, then this class is for you. Key topics include "Conversations for Action" and, time permitting, "Barriers to Commitment."
