This five-day course allows individuals and teams to focus on the underlying causes of behavior that block successful performance. Going far beyond traditional behavioral approaches, this program is designed to equip participants with the skills to transform groups and organizations into motivated, empowered productive units. In this course participants explore how and why they behave in certain ways and how their behavior, feelings and self-concept affect personal and team relations, leadership, decision-making, conflict resolution and life transitions. The course includes brief lectures, experiential activities, scientifically based self-assessment questionnaires, group feedback, skills practice, and application in the areas of teamwork, performance appraisal, decision making and leadership. The three day version (now called The Human Element®: Teambuilding (Cornerstone Course)) does not include applications in the area of decision making and teamwork.
