The wisdom of teams

Nov 02, 2018
Park Inn By Radisson Riga Valdemars, Krogus 1
AmCham Latvia in cooperation with TeamLead hosted a training devoted to the development and management of successful teams on November 2 at the Park Inn by Radisson Riga Valdemara. In this training members gained an insight into functioning of their teams, studied effective strategies in handling change and conflict, and identified steps to increase synergy of their unique teams. First an interactive public lecture on team development took place, after which a more focused training session for a limited number of members was offered.
Major conclusions from the training included:
- The ultimate role of the leader is conversation facilitator;
- Key difference between manipulation and care is your intention;
- To keep your motivation up you might need to kill it and rebuild from the scratch once in a while. 

This training was the opportunity to refresh knowledge and gain new tools about facilitating team development. Thank you to our wonderful trainers for their contribution!
