Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jason Alba and welcome to my course, Creating and Leading Effective Teams. I am CEO and founder at and a soft skills author at Pluralsight. In this course, we're going to talk about strategies and tactics you can work on right now to become a better team leader. Some of the major topics we'll cover include creating a great team, building the right culture for your team, team communication, and team dynamics. By the end of this course, you should feel confident in your ability to lead your team to success. You'll have plenty of ideas to implement from the time you start to lead your team until the team is dismantled. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into leading your team with courses on leadership, change management, and emotional intelligence. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about team leadership and culture, with the Creating and Leading Effective Teams course at Pluralsight.
