Developing & Leading High Performance Teams

Who It’s For

Leaders who want to draw the best out of their teams while also nurturing the growth of individuals along the way; all leadership levels are welcome to this course and we will put you into groups with peers at your same level.

The Leadership Green Room, offering professional development, leadership development and soft skills training, is presented by Republic Bank Foundation

Why this course?

Creating and leading high-performance teams can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your career – and one of the most challenging. You recognize a high-performing team when you see one, but what enables their success isn’t always as clear.
