Nobody in your organization wants to sit passively through a high-priced guru's lecture or theories about teamwork. A Great Results event is a unique mixture of hands-on and out-of-your-chair interactive fun, paired with an impactful debriefing session to connect lessons to your specific situation. Everyone involved will leave energized with laughter, and will (even more importantly) be able to immediately apply the insights to improve your organizational culture and productivity.
When change occurs in any organization (school administration, office management, or coaching staff) there is always a need to focus on building teamwork and clarifying team goals to build trust and morale that will ultimately help your group focus on reaching team goals - which is always an opportunity for improvement and growth!
How does teamwork affect our bottom-line productivity?
*According to The Wisdom of Teams (Katzenbach & Smith), a General Electric plant located in North Carolina "now runs without supervisors and has reduced costs by more than 30 percent, shortened delivery cycles from three weeks to three days, and reduced customer complaints by a factor of ten."
*A PBS series from a few years ago, titled "Learning in America," reported on school faculty members who were teamed with visionary principals who emphasized collaboration and teamwork with the goal of turning around four low-performing schools across the country that had disadvantaged populations. Sample results shared by the different schools included tremendous successes, such as:
- Student attendance rose from being consistently low to an impressive 98%.
- Standardized test scores from 6th-graders went from the 44th percentile to 97th.
- Students at or above their math grade level went from under 50% to over 90%.
