Many "executive teams" fall short of their potential, resembling disjointed individuals rather than a cohesive unit. In such an environment, the potential of a team is often untapped, anchored at the baseline of mediocrity rather than soaring to the heights of excellence.

Furthermore, studies reveal that a significant chunk of meeting time — between 30% to 60% — is unproductive. While meetings are crucial, many leaders struggle to conduct them effectively, leading to unresolved issues and ill-informed decisions.

This course equips you with actionable tools and strategies to:

  • Transform disjointed groups into high-performing teams.
  • Conduct meetings that are efficient, focused, and productive.
  • Foster motivation, reduce conflicts, and establish clear communication channels.
  • Define roles, responsibilities, and achieve consensus for actionable outcomes.

Professor Johannsen's Instructor Bio

Besides having a number of years teaching at universities, Mr. Johannsen runs his own training and development organization focused on skill set's employers are crying for in the areas of: skill mastery; digital, social media and influencer marketing; and leadership skills.  

Unlike most full-time professors, he knows what employers want and what student lack when it comes to getting work (and getting better work). Murray has seen it over and over again; bad resumes and poorly written profiles and interviews that fail to impress. And so designed the course to deliver the verbal and written skills employers want in employees and supervisors.
