The dynamics of teamwork are too complex to be mastered through classroom work alone. Creating and Leading High-Performing Teams provides a distinctive combination of classroom and case work, along with daily experiential exercises. It builds upon years of programs by Professor Michael Useem and Wharton Leadership Ventures, which have immersed MBA students and executives in rigorous outdoor challenges around the globe. Senior guest speakers also offer their experiences from business, the military, and other areas.
Wharton faculty, led by Jeff Klein — executive director of Wharton’s Anne and John McNulty Leadership Program — apply their field-based research and the latest strategic insights to help participants build and nurture performance-driven teams.
In sum, this program provides managers, regardless of their organization size or type, with the strategic frameworks and tools to build and lead teams that leverage individual strengths to achieve outstanding results.
Session topics include:
- Forming and Sustaining Successful Teams
- Aligning Individuals around Group Goals
