“Change is a fact of life in managed care! The most important part of your talk to the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy was in helping us see that no matter how much we eliminate, automate or downsize, people are the most important asset that any organization has.”

Championship Teams…Creating a Mindset of Excellence

This program looks at the dynamics of a team, and explores the 9 characteristics of a championship team. Participants will learn how to uncover and re-direct the “hidden agendas” of difficult team members, and explore how excellence can be achieved when a team operates from the concept of shared responsibility, accountability and caring. This can be presented as a breakout session, or a more interactive, hands-on full-day workshop or Management Retreat.

“Your audience was made up of managers from the major corporations in Sao Paulo, and your segment on uncovering the “hidden agendas” of team members was an eye-opener for us. Thank you for your practical, down-to-earth strategies for achieving team excellence, and the warmth and personal insights you shared in bringing your message to us.”
