Building a Winning Team:
In this session, we will discuss why teamwork is so important. We will also look at Tuckman and Jensen’s team development model: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning.


Managing Team Meetings:
Most projects should have a defined timeline for team meetings. First, project managers meet with the individual members of the team. Then, the project manager meets with the team as a whole. Next, the first status meeting occurs. This session will discuss all of these meetings in detail, plus some general meeting management tips.


Easy Ways to Reward Your Team:
One challenge many project managers face is how to keep the team motivated during the project. We discuss some ways that project managers can keep the team moving and performing at their best.


Developing a Communication Plan:
To ensure your project’s success, you must include a communications plan as part of your initial project planning. This plan will cover the who, when, why, what, and how of your communications with various project members throughout the whole project.


Communicating with Sponsors and Executives:
Your project sponsor and executives are key members of your team. Typically, they provide the authority and the resources to execute your project. During this session, we will discuss some ways to effectively communicate with your sponsor and executives.
