Our four-week Building and Managing Resilient Teams course covers all angles of managing a resilient team, from formation to dissolution or expansion.

Designed For

Designed for professionals interested in building a successful career in a rapidly changing environment, as well as for those interested in increasing their leadership and organizational skills focusing on team building and management.

Good leaders not only guide employees but empower them to overcome adversity and rise to new challenges—and today’s organizations face no shortage of new challenges. The current environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) requires flexible organizations and professionals. This course will teach you how to create an adaptable team to solve a range of issues, no matter how novel they may be. 

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the key qualities of a resilient team and understand team fundamentals
  • Outline the steps necessary to assemble, lead, and manage teams under volatile conditions
  • Apply strategies to manage, motivate, and effectively resolve conflicts among team members diverse in culture, geography, and skills or operating in different modalities (in-person, virtual, or hybrid)
  • Define the signs of and avenues to leading the stages of a team’s evolution: promoting members, growing the team, and disbanding it
