In today's complex and uncertain work environments, high-functioning teams are essential. To achieve effective teamwork and collaboration, it's important to cultivate these skills and give them regular attention. Our workshop focuses on developing shared leadership among team members and provides concrete tools for improving collaboration.

If you're a team leader looking to enhance your team's performance, this workshop is designed specifically for you. You'll receive practical tools and ideas that you can implement right away.

Sourcewell strives to bring the highest-quality resources, information, and training opportunities to our members. We're honored to team up with the Lakes Country Service Cooperative to bring this opportunity to our central Minnesota region.
