OSU Leadership Certificate Program/OKC Consortium

These leadership development programs are offered by Oklahoma State University Spears School of Business faculty. The seminars are designed to prepare, motivate, and build business leaders. These programs are “open-enrollment” programs offered in Oklahoma City in cooperation with Chesapeake Energy. We invite you to register and join us for these sessions. The format of the seminars includes discussion, assessments and/or case studies so concepts are put into practice during sessions and participants return to the workplace better able to implement the information presented.

Creating and Developing High Performance Teams

Raj Basu, Ph.D.

Raj Basu, Ph.D.
Vice-President for Academic Affairs

July 9, 2015 / 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. / Presented by Raj Basu, Ph.D.

High-performance teams don’t just happen. They are carefully built and well managed, and this is not always a smooth process. A key to strong, performance oriented, teams is building strong interpersonal relationships prior to the formation of teams. This seminar covers issues across the life span of teams, from deciding when to use them, to understanding their stages of development, to moving them toward high performance. Special attention will be given to the various challenges teams face in moving toward high performance (conflict, turning individuals into team players, motivation problems, team decision-making problems, etc.) and ways that teams can successfully navigate these obstacles. Both management and team members share responsibility for moving a team toward high- performance, and we will focus on both of these roles throughout the seminar. In addition to material delivery, we will make use of experiential exercises to demonstrate important team principles. This seminar is sponsored by the Department of Management and the Center for Executive and Professional Development in the Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University.
