How Teams Work Do's and Don'ts for Dealing With Resistance to Your Project Create-Learning Team Building and Leadership

About 2 years ago I created 12 on-line Team Building & Development sessions for a company. We called it ‘Helping Teams Work’. It was meant to be short, less than 5 minutes, & give 1 concrete action step people can apply to their work on teams…

They liked it & I enjoyed trying to make content that did not require me to be present.

Below is the 12th of 12 ‘Helping Teams Work’ content sections.
