What You Will Explore

These virtual but fully interactive sessions focus on several key performance concepts:

Find the Why

Develop a PURPOSE-focused mindset. Why we should come together and strive for something bigger than ourselves.

Come Ready to Play

Develop a GROWTH mindset. How individually we can assume responsibility for our own extraordinary performance by focusing on being accountable, committed and prepared.

From Many to ONE

Develop a TEAM mindset and an ENGAGED-TEAM culture. How we can switch from an individual to a team approach by developing cohesion, trust and performance norms.

Overcome Adversity

Develop a CAN-DO mindset. How we can embrace the power of commitment, grit, passion and perseverance.

Play to Win

Develop a WINNING mindset. How we can achieve more by adopting a “we are stronger together” focus.

The Power of Teams is actively experiential. You will have opportunities for putting your learning into practice through interactive engagement with a Harvard Business Review case study and simulation. You will be challenged to climb Mount Everest and think differently about teamwork. The gains will be insights you can take back to your role and organization and apply daily.
