The Corentus Team Development Certificate Program
Our Team Development Program for Internal Practitioners is specifically focused to equip internal team development practitioners with the tools, methods, and skills to support the development of high performing teams within their organization. With a focus on the Corentus Team Frameworks, participants will learn how to support teams increasing their effectiveness using the modalities of teaching, facilitating, consulting, and team coaching.
Through a combination of individualized development and feedback, in-person training, virtual synchronous and asynchronous learning, and real-life application with practice teams, participants will gain a deep toolset of practical, easy to understand and apply tools that they can use in their support of teams and groups at work. Sample topic areas include: Decision Making, Meeting Effectiveness, Mutual Accountability, Roles and Responsibilities, Team Lifecycle, Team Operating Modes, Team Communication Behaviors, State of Mind, Dealing with Conflict, and many more.
SPECIFICALLY CREATED FOR THE INTERNAL PRACTITIONER
The Corentus team leading this program has vast experience working inside organizations in Human Resources, Talent Management, and Team Leadership roles in the Federal Government, Non-Profit, and Private Sectors. We’ve seen what works and how internal practitioners can apply these tools and methods to more effectively partner with the organization and support team development to achieve greater business results.
The key to sustainability within an organization is having internal practitioners who can support, guide, and reinforce the implementation of high performance team behaviors throughout the system. Our most effective client engagements happen when we have a strong internal partner working to embed our tools and practices throughout the system. Let us help you be a change agent for team high performance in your organization!
