That Work explores the stages of team development: diversity, team
mission and team guidelines essential to team's success. We answer
the questions: Why am I here? What is expected of me? How do I work
in this team and still get my "regular" job done? Break Thru the
skepticism and difficulties of being on teams. Tap into tips and
techniques and an experiential trip through the Cascade Mountain
Range to see if the team will survive. Whether you have been in
teams for a while, or just beginning, Working In Teams. . . Teams

YOU'RE NOT MY TYPE...
BUT WE CAN STILL WORK TOGETHER
Ideally teams are made up of people whose strengths and preferences
are perfectly matched. In the real world each person is different.
People think, react, make decisions,
and work differently. Now all of these people are in a
team of sales representatives being managed by one person or self directed. Explore team differences to enhance individual and team success, learn team behavior styles with the DISCİ system,
and create action plans for improved work performance.
Not only will you better understand yourself, you will
know more about your team and how to make it grow.
KEEP YOUR COOL, STAND YOUR GROUND,
REACH POSITIVE SOLUTIONS FIX IT NOW!
Don't let them sit. When conflicts arise instincts
are to become defensive, and to bury our thoughts and opinions. Unresolved
conflicts simmer on, until they explode again and again. Before
long a team is in defensive mode and spending most of their time
putting out the fires instead of moving forward working towards
common goals. Cooperation is replaced by combat. Anger replaces
the fragile foundation of team trust. Eliminate Derailed Communication
so we can work efficiently and effectively and help us through our
THE CHEEZY MAZE OF CHANGE
Change happens every day. Sometimes we are open to it, other times
we're not. Even when things are going well there's change. Sales
people and sales managers have to sell more every day, every week
and every month. That's change. How are they going to do it, where
are they going to find new customers, how are they going to do everything
that they are asked to do and still make sales increases? That's
change. Sometimes there are internal changes in procedures or personnel.
How they personally go through the cheezy maze of change makes a
difference. Using the nationally acclaimed book and video WHO MOVED
MY CHEESE?, we maneuver through the complexities and issues sales
teams and sales managers face, adopt change language and master
the Cheezy Maze of Change.
TRUST ME...IT'S ALL ABOUT US
What do ropes, blindfolds, paper bags, hats and toothpaste tubes
have in common? Together they equal TRUST. And trust is the cornerstone
of any successful team. We'll wander through a series of exercises
to build mutually respectful, beneficial relationships among team
members. Team members progress from defensiveness to trust and learn
how a team achieves more than a group of people. Ropes, blindfolds,
paper bags, hats and toothpaste tubes will have a new meaning!
IT STARTS AND STOPS WITH ME:
Wouldn't it be nice with no more blame, no more pointing fingers,
and no more hearing "It's not my job." Learn the tools
and techniques to take responsibility. Understand the dynamics
of looking at situations as "What can I be doing to make things
happen," as opposed to "What am I allowing to stop me and others
from moving forward." Notice everyone becoming more productive,
less things falling through the cracks, and everyone working together.
