Why Many Teams Struggle
(4 Ways to Improve Team Efficiency)

By Julie Genjac


So, you’re in charge of a team, but you wonder many things about it. Are the members motivated, stressed out, or bored? Do they understand the mission? Is each team member the right fit? Getting these answers isn’t always easy because team dynamics can be quite complex. 

Our team resources can help. You’ll learn how to plan effective team meetings, determine whether you have the right people in the right roles, and decide if it’s time to add or replace a member. You’ll also learn how to clearly communicate the team’s mission and help ensure that everyone is motivated to achieve them.
