How do you truly build, train, develop, mentor and sustain a “championship team” in the workplace?

In this outstanding, information-packed program, Joshua Barricklow and David Snyder draw upon their vast experience in working with major companies nationwide to show all project leaders and engineers how to build highly effective teams. Step by step, the course will teach you to master a scientific approach to analyzing, selecting and measuring the competencies and skills needed on superior project teams. The course then shows you how to use evaluation and performance measurement tools to successfully select and manage high performing team members — while simultaneously creating a higher level of innovation, collaboration, accountability, cohesiveness and teamwork.

Parts of this course were drawn from Snyder’s critically acclaimed book How to Hire a Champion. It also includes course material Barricklow and Snyder helped to develop at NC State University, Harvard and other institutions on best practices in successfully managing group dynamics.
