Course Overview The power of an effective team is unquestioned. All organizations have one, few or many teams that work towards common objectives. Teams are critical not only from organizational goals perspective but they also provide directions and roadmaps to the team players.  Organizations continually strive to create more effective teams, and team players seek teams that manage their skills and provide professional and personal growth.
