Thriving as a Team
Creating Organizational Synergy with TLC:
Teamwork, Leadership, and Communication
Is your team comprised of solo geniuses who do their individual work extremely well but can’t seem to get along or collaborate well with others? What results would your team produce if everyone showed up engaged and committed to working together cooperatively and collaboratively? A solo mentality undermines the team’s overall success.
Uncommitted, uncooperative, and unprofessional team members can leave an entire department feeling drained and depleted – mentally, emotionally, and physically. When team members become worn out, stressed out, and burned out due to ongoing conflicts, the quality and quantity of a team’s efforts are compromised and individual commitment diminishes very quickly.
Individual disengagement, team disruptions, and organizational conflicts are very expensive if they are not managed and handled appropriately. Teams that thrive, succeed, and move forward, do so because there is a leader with a vision for fostering team morale.
Dr. Jermaine’s presentation “Thriving as a Team” will bring a new and fresh perspective to your team and organization. His guidance will help your team focus on keeping “the main thing the main thing.” Courageous conversations, cohesive cooperation, and committed collaboration are possible!
In this participatory and interactive presentation, Dr. Jermaine, will share best practices utilized by high-performing teams to create an engaged workplace. Dr. Jermaine draws from the material in his two best-selling books, Leading with Greatness! and Get Up Off Your Butt & Do It NOW! . Get ready to take your team to the next level as you seek to thrive as a team!
Influencing Up, Down, and Across Your Organization
“The key to successful leadership is influence, not authority.” ~ Kenneth H. Blanchard
Are you a person of influence? Can you get your point across in a meeting without appearing aggressive, arrogant, or annoying? Can you quickly assess a situation and adapt your message to minimize disagreements, derailments, and destructive conflicts?
When you speak, are people engaged or disengaged? Can you even tell? Managing up, connecting across, and reaching down to connect with people in your organization will increase team and organizational success.
Dr. Jermaine believes that 85 percent of your success in Life, School & Work is determined by your ability to get along with others.
