Course Description

In today’s economy, leaders often have to ask employees to do more with less.  How, then, can supervisors help employees be productive and efficient in the light of overwork and under-staffing? Cross-team collaboration, also known as cross-functional teams, allows employees to share talent, skills, and expertise in a way that maximizes effectiveness while reducing time constraints and manpower shortages.  In this seminar, you will learn how to manage cross-functional teams work in today's workplace, how you can put them into place, and how you can use them to maximize organizational productivity – while ensuring a happy and growing employee base.
