    Title:  Cultivating a Positive, Productive Team

    This interactive workshop will review the business impact of a positive work culture, create team vision & mission statements (telescope and microscope view), and share examples of how to make a 'great soup'.  This "great soup" is a positive, energized and engaged work environment.  The session will talk about how leaders set the example for their teams through transfer of belief and transparency. 

    Participants will learn how to  deal with energy vampires & cultural voids by using proven methods such as love & accountability, gratitude and feeding the positive dog. 
    If you’ve ever wondered how to create a team that is connected, committed and communicating this workshop will show you how to achieve that using simple techniques.  If you have ever felt like you or your team members were dipping “below the line” you will learn ways to bring everyone else up above that line.  It’s important to focus on one area for your business, culture or team and this workshop will gives you the tools to start knocking down that lead domino.  Learning how to get your team clear on where you are going will help you get everyone rowing the boat in the right direction.
