Team building in the workplace has traditionally not been a priority for most organizations. With challenges in staffing turnover and retention, organizations have chosen to dedicate their valuable energies and resources to other areas of the operation. However, with increasing changes, challenges, and dynamic work environments, teams play a critical role in maximizing outcomes and optimizing the use of resources in the organization. In simple terms, effective teams are an integral part to overall organizational success and longevity.

This course is for health care professionals in all settings and is designed for beginning to experienced team leaders at all levels and disciplines of health care organizations.
