Jeff Tobe's creative team building fosters group collaboration. His fun and participatory session teaches the lesson that all contributions are important to the whole team. Jeff explores the creation of interdependence in teams and how the most powerful teams foster self-motivation among their members. In the end, everyone realizes that the best teams do not have one great leader, but instead are a team of leaders.

Join Jeff to learn:
  • The 4 myths about motivation in a team atmosphere.
  • What happens when we don't get input from all team members.
  • The power of shared team responsibility.
  • The decision-making process made easy-even when you are under time pressure.
  • Some teambuilding techniques to bring your people together as a cohesive unit as quickly as possible.
