Dec: Team-Based Work Structures

0.75 CEUs | Cost: $90  Dec 2-16
Libraries and professional organizations commonly utilize committees and teams to manage projects, yet all too often promising initiatives flounder or fizzle because team ground rules, expectations, and timelines aren’t articulated from the get-go. Incorporating self-management principles can help you and your group move past inaction and towards a more productive and efficient working relationship. In this two-week class, we will look at some of the literature on team productivity, draft realistic work plans and timelines, and discuss techniques for navigating interpersonal conflict, articulating individual responsibilities, and incorporating rolling assessments in order to stay on track and bring projects in on time.
