    Want to decrease your workload? Learn how to close the gap between average teams and high performing teams, where problems get solved with minimal participation from you. 

    There is no “I” in team. My boss, my desk, my project, my client….how do you get the me/my/mine attitudes to move to more systems thinking and more interdependent than co-dependent (on HR)?  

    First build awareness about what makes a great team. Learn about 14 features that contribute to high performing teams, and contribute to a conversation addressing the 14 attributes. 

    People are hired as individuals and then expected to assimilate into a team with little or no direction (once the orientation is over). Or, the team has been in place for many years and what use to work, is no longer working. Teams are the key force to business success, yet so much time is still dedicated to individuals.  

    Join in the discussion on addressing teams’ strengths, team derailers (including toxins, agenda's and politics) and how to create sustainable teams performance. Learn and share some of the hidden fractures that erode team performance, and how to diagnose and prescribe “treatment” so that you can focus on more strategic initiatives.

    Our facilitator for this discussion is Freddi Donner, ACC, NLP, founder of Business Stamina.

She believes in abundance and adding value and inspires others to do the same.

    As a volunteer member of the Board at International Coach Federation (DC Chapter), Freddi oversees the leadership of the Chapter as President. She is pursuing her next level of ICF certification (PCC).
