Your session on influencing was exceptionally relevant to the central themes of our meeting, and you managed to energize our participants around these topics through your dynamic delivery. Thank you for a fantastic session that sent our attendees back into their workplaces with fresh perspective and renewed passion.
Everyone was so excited about the opportunity to come together and to get to meet and know each other a bit better. I have been overwhelmed with the excitement and buzz this has created with the teams! They are talking the new language and having a lot of fun with it. Folks are practicing some of the principles.
Very tangible session; I thought defining people leverage as we did was enormously valuable.
At the top of nearly every executive’s development plan is the phrase “build a high performing team.” Yet getting a bunch of really smart, independent, and driven individuals to create something collectively is deceptively difficult. More often so-called “teaming” creates a dynamic in which the leader of the team is the glue and the members optimize not for the collective good but for their individual functions. Breaking this frequent but suboptimal pattern requires deep understanding of what untapped strengths of the team paired with a progression of experiences that allow the team to tackle increasingly complex and powerful organization challenges. No team leaps forward by attending a single team building event. We emphasize institutionalizing the team interaction model into all interactions team members have with each other and their teams.
