In partnership with the Gary W. Rollins College of Business at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Trident Leadership is pleased to present a series of three virtual sessions focused on building and leading decentralized teams. Each session will be held one week apart, beginning 10 September.

When an organization is separated suddenly amidst a dynamic chaotic environment, operations can outpace the ability to manage. In order to maintain tempo and precision, organizations must decentralize decision-making authority. Doing so requires a focused effort to achieve and maintain coordination. High-Performance teams that thrive in a decentralized environment utilize the Mission approach.

The course is well charted. We'll illuminate the path.

Series Tuition: $750 per participant (covers all sessions)
