04/07/2020 2:00 pm EDT - 3:00 pm EDT
Join us for an hour-long webinar about team effectiveness, based on HRDQ’s workshop and assessment, Team Effectiveness Profile (TEP). TEP is a diagnostic instrument designed to assist groups in improving their output and work satisfaction. Under normal circumstances, issues that block a group’s effectiveness may not be apparent. Issues that remain undisclosed can drain a group’s energy and undermine its productive efforts. TEP was developed to help groups systematically identify these issues.

Research shows that assertive behavior improves individual and organizational performance.

Another leader may rally the troops around a cause. Yet another leader may bolster their self-confidence. Still another leader may guide team members according to carefully laid plans. Whose way of leading is best? It all depends.
