Whether you consider yourself an individual who works better independently or a born team player, there’s no escaping the fact that in your professional life you will be working as a member of a team, and even of several teams simultaneously. The nature of teams is constantly evolving. You could be working on a long-term project with colleagues in the same building who you know well, or come together for a short period of time with colleagues from across the world.
In this course you will reflect on your own experience of working in teams, both outside and in work, and consider the key traits of a high-performing team. You will explore common problems encountered in teams, look at the qualities and behaviours that managers across a range of disciplines in a publishing environment expect from their teams and reflect on how you can use your own qualities to contribute to your teams.
Publishing professionals working in both traditional in-house and virtual cross-functional teams.
