Successful leaders know that building high performing teams involves more than hiring talented people and putting them in a room together. It involves building trust, communicating effectively, and inspiring superior performance. These are the building blocks of high caliber collaboration.

How do you build trust? Connect on a personal level and tune into the emotions of others. 

How do you communicate effectively? Learn the 4 different communication styles and how they  impact team interactions.

How do you inspire superior performance? Understand each team member’s motivators and skills and put the right person in the right role.

The Talent@Work® coaching shows you how to integrate these 3 building blocks of collaboration and also guides you to become a more effective leader, team member, or customer service provider. You will gain useful insight into how to connect with hard-to-manage employees or customers.
