Organizations are increasingly structuring themselves around teams, and this change in the nature of work presents many challenges and opportunities for future managers.
Michigan State University is offering organizations the opportunity to participate in a new executive development initiative. The Broad College of Business and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics have joined forces to create Building Winning Teams: A Quest for Excellence, an executive leadership program targeted for high-potential business professionals who lead a team or contribute to their team’s success.
“The ability to create and sustain excellence through teams is vital to organizational success,” says Broad management professor and John Hollenbeck, who helped develop the program.
This unique collaboration will provide participants of this executive leadership program the opportunity to enhance their skills to build a strong team structure and culture, select and recruit top talent, build team performance through accountability, make effective strategic and tactical decisions, manage conflict and promote perceptions of fairness, and bring about change and team development.
