Building High Performing Teams: Aviation & Aerospace Series

Raven Centre, 311-5360 Airport Road South, Richmond, BC

This Building High Performing Teams Workshop is part of the Aviation series hosted by the Raven Institute and is recommended for all team members and team leaders. When people work better together – potential is unlocked, engagement increases, productivity improves, and business prospers. Building an effective cohesive team is hard. But it’s also simple. High performing teams have trust, engage in healthy conflict around ideas, commit to decisions, hold each other accountable, and focus on achieving collective results. High performing teams can answer these questions – Who am I? Who are we? Where are we going? How are we going to get there? This engaging workshop offers an integrated set of skills, knowledge, and plans to renew team spirit, enhance performance, and improve team leadership. These small, limited-seat, full-day workshops will offer BCAC members 25 per cent off the regular registration fee with promo code BCAC. Lunch is included with your investment. Email connect@raveninstitute.ca if you would like to save the fees and pay directly by credit card.
