Up next is Course #2, “Understanding Teams as Human Systems – the Secret Sauce for Effective Teams.” Teams are the fundamental unit of organizations. Yet, research shows that 75% of teams are dysfunctional.
Understanding human systems is the secret sauce for building productive and engaging teams! “Human systems” is a new term for many. A human system is any group of people that impact one another. Understanding human systems is important because individual people tend to be shaped by system behavior such as group norms and organizational culture rather than people shaping system behavior.
In this course, you’ll discover the significance of human systems and how to focus system behavior to benefit your team and organization.
It will dramatically improve your ability to work with all kinds of teams, including your family.

Well done!

You Are Achieving Excellence in Leadership!
