Course Description:

In this workshop the participants will be introduced to team building and teamwork. A set of practical tools will enable them to handle diverse teams and to set up rules for effective teamwork. The participants will get to know moderation and conversation techniques to prepare, lead and facilitate face-to-face and virtual meetings, to intervene and solve conflicts and to deal with “difficult” or challenging people.
