Education Session

Function at Full Capacity

Saturday, August 24, 2019, 10 —11 a.m.

Machines are evaluated based on the output of the entire unit, not the impressiveness of their individual parts. Extraordinary teams, like great machines, require certain components that hold their pieces together. While most organizations focus exclusively on building the skills of their individual members, elite organizations invest in the “stuff” that transforms a collection of talented individuals into extraordinary, machine-like teams.

In this presentation, you will:

  • Better understand the need to make sacrifices to achieve the team’s common goal
  • Learn how open and honest communication is the foundation for trust
  • Gain techniques to practice daily, focused discipline that is the key to consistency
