This 16-hour course is designed to equip participants with the essential knowledge and skills needed to form and operate self-directed work teams. The course focuses on critical aspects of self-directed teamwork, from its foundational principles to advanced techniques for problem-solving and continuous improvement.

They will also delve into the roles of leaders and supervisors in fostering a self-directed environment. Key Principles for Teams: 1) Empowerment: Team members should be empowered to make decisions. 2) Collective Responsibility: Cultivate a "WE vs. ME" culture. 3) Open Communication: Use tools like team boards for transparent communication. 4) Training: Invest in training sessions to equip teams with the necessary skills. 5) Fear-Free Environment: Create an atmosphere where mistakes are opportunities for learning. 6) Leadership Facilitation: Leaders should act as facilitators rather than micromanagers. 7) Span of Control: Understanding what each team member can control and act upon. 8) Freedom within Framework: Allow teams to operate within a set framework but with freedom to make decisions. By the end of the course, participants will be well-versed in the theory and practical application of self-directed work teams, ready to implement these strategies in their own work settings for enhanced productivity and employee engagement." } ["sf_event_start_date"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(16) "February 7, 2024" } ["sf_event_start_time"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "08:30:00.000Z" } ["sf_event_end_date"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(16) "February 7, 2024" } ["sf_event_end_time"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(13) "17:00:00.000Z" } ["sf_sync_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(5) "67044" } ["_sf_sync_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(19) "field_620bbf9ab741e" } ["sf_salesforce_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(18) "701Hp0000022aS9IAI" } }
