Are you and your leaders equipped to excel cross-functionally and leverage the power of the middle? Managing a highly productive cross-functional team comes with unique challenges. However, with the proper training, insights, and tools, cross-functional leaders can take an organization from good to great, failure to success, and vision to reality.
Birkman’s Cross-Functional Leadership program was specifically designed for leaders accountable for leading cross-function teams, such as Vice Presidents, Executives, Directors, and Project Managers, who must be effective at managing the business and leading other leaders. The program participants will create the steps to solve a cross-functional challenge they face and ultimately ensure they are getting results by leading from the middle.
