CLA workshop to focus on team-building

March 28, 2011

TEAMWORKNIU’s Civic Leadership Academy will present a workshop Thursday, April 7, on “Teamwork and Team Building: Trying Times Also Demand Teamwork.”

As the old saying goes, the letters T-E-A-M stand for “together everyone achieves more.” The question is this, how do you build a sense of team? Does teamwork come naturally? What happens to the concept of team in tough times? It’s easy to be a team when you’re “winning,” but what happens when times are tough?

This session will explore the nature of teams, the importance and value of teamwork, the pitfalls of trying times and the cost to the organization of “going it alone.” The session will include participative exercises and short case studies.

Greg Kuhn, assistant director and senior research associate at NIU’s Center for Governmental Studies, is the presenter. The session is held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at NIU-Naperville.

Registration is available online. For more information, call (815) 753-370 or (815) 753-7574.
