What is the difference between a group of individuals and a team? A team works in harmony, connecting the strengths of the individuals with the shared purpose of the team. Without this alignment, the team can hurt productivity instead of inspiring it, especially if the team is made of smart, strong high-achievers. This presentation shares the essential steps for creating the glue that bonds individuals so they become a top performing team that enjoys working together.
Participants will experience how to:
- Focus on their combined strengths instead of individual differences
- Discover a common identity and purpose
- Define their future and create agreements to help keep them on track
- Enjoy the journey together
The participants will leave the workshop eager to implement what they learn with their teams back at work.
This program can be delivered half-day workshop or a dynamic retreat with intact teams.
