The Unstoppable Leader: Building a Self-Managed Team

It should come as no surprise that the majority of employees leave their organization not because of their pay or the working environment, but because of their boss.

This is where a self-managed team takes flight. Unstoppable! leaders recognize the power that exists within their team, and effectively empower team members to enable them to become self-managed.
Key Takeaways:
• Distinctions of today’s employees: their needs, wants, and ideal working environment
• Why a self-managed team is the answer
• The four components of a self-managed team, and how to deploy them effectively
• Shifting from a “boss” to a facilitator of a self-managed team
• Sustaining team dynamics and performance over the long term
