LIVE WEBINAR: Keep Your Team Healthy: Four Essential Dynamics

Tuesday, October 3, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm, CDT

Presenter: Patricia Bombard, Director, Vincent on Leadership: The Hay Project

The World Health Organization defines healthy as " A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity" (WHO 1948 Constitutions). Is your team living out this holistic definition of healthy? Or, is your team's productivity suffering from ongoing blocks to health such as lack of trust, unresolved conflicts, poor social skills, or weak motivation?

In this webinar, you will learn why four essential dynamics are critical to sustaining healthy teams and how to implement them more consistently:
  • Trust: why this dynamic is identified by Patrick Lencioni as the first essential dynamic in team building in his book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
  • Empathy: why Marie R. Miyashiro says this dynamic soon will be the most sought after skill in all sectors in her book, The Empathy Factor
  • Advocacy & Inquiry: why, according to the Society for Organizational Learning, a balance of these two dynamics can generate more creative thinking and productivity
  • Motivation: why Daniel Goleman sees this dynamic as an essential component of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and successful team leadership.
