Leading High-Performance Teams in
High-Pressure Projects

High stakes, high risks, tight budgets, severe time constraints … any of these alone is sufficient to diminish the performance of a team in which tightly-coupled collaboration is essential. But more often than not, in today’s workplace these factors are woven together in a dynamic tapestry where one factor plays off of another, adding to the challenge of leading such teams and delivering the intended results. This course deals with these challenges head-on.
