Background

Since the mid-1980s, the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) has worked with many organizations and teams through its educational initiatives. The goal of these initiatives is to help participants develop team management skills through a proven process that combines personal assessment, feedback from the workplace, and experience with practical team-oriented applications. These developmental experiences provide research-based information about how high-performance teams work, honest appraisals of existing teams’ strengths and weaknesses, and proven approaches for turning average performers into a highly effective team. It covers such issues as selecting team members, launching teams effectively, bridging cross-cultural differences in teams, and resolving team conflict. Through training programs, research, and custom interventions, CCL continues to provide a hands-on learning experience for team leaders that emphasizes a range of practical tools and strategies for enhancing the performance of any team.

In addition to providing these team-oriented educational programs and customized interventions, CCL launched in 1996 a research project into the work and performance of geographically dispersed teams. Since 1997, various CCL faculty members have presented their findings and analyses at conferences and through various publications. CCL continues its work with clients and with other scholars to further develop its understanding of teams – how they can be led more effectively, how they can best achieve organizational goals, and how they can be created and maintained for improved results. CCL seeks to pass that understanding on to team leaders and their organizations in order that teams meet and even surpass performance expectations.
