Project leaders need team members who are committed to their project and its success, but who can also adapt to the continuous change inherent in the progressive elaboration of projects. Yet building commitment and resilience is difficult in the face of the challenges that project teams experience, including members that come from vastly different backgrounds and functions. Research shows that project managers can address these challenges and build commitment and collaboration in their teams by building an emotionally intelligent project team culture. In this workshop we will learn how to apply the team emotional intelligence (Team EQ) framework to build project teams that exceed their performance potential. The session will include hands-on, interactive case studies and assessments that can be used immediately with your project teams to improve their functioning.
