In the modern work environment, organisations increasingly need cohesive, flexible teams. For some people, teamwork comes naturally, for others, it’s a challenge. A crucial part of management, therefore, is knowing how to create an effective team from a group of potentially diverse people. MCI’s Building High-Performing Teams program provides insights into the essential elements of successful teams and how to develop a positive team culture in the workplace.
