JPro Pittsburgh Professional Development Workshop

Effective teams are the backbone of a successful organization. They drive innovation, collaboration, and productivity, leading to better outcomes for both the company and its employees. But building an effective team can be challenging and complex, forcing an organization to face issues in communication, trust, employee morale and more. Organizational leadership in particular plays a key role in facilitating teamwork, which requires bringing humility into their professional practice and recognizing that teamwork goes far beyond just delegating responsibility.

Through a very intentional and transparent process, the JCC’s early childhood development center has used the Reggio Emelia Approach and the Sheva Lenses as guideposts for creating and supporting a team of educators who collaborate cohesively to achieve common goals and deliver high-quality results.

Please join us to learn how these principles from early childhood can help your team become stronger and more successful in driving the organization’s overall success.

This workshop is for professionals of all backgrounds and career stages, catering particularly to individuals who lead and participate in teams.

Light refreshments will be provided.
