    Teams that work! 5 Behaviors EVERY one of your teams need to succeed!

    Presenter: Kiki Orski 

    Tuesday, October 22nd , 2019  6PM

    Location: Marcum 10 Melville Park Road. Melville, NY 11747

    This session introduces the five key components for any team that wants to achieve outstanding outcomes. This simple framework, based on the international best-selling work of Patrick Lencioni, when implemented consistently, can help every team:

     Make faster, better decisions

     Tap into the skills and opinions of all team members which dramatically improves employee engagement

     Notice the wasted time and energy spent focusing on politics, confusion, and destructive conflict and then move them in a positive direction

     Focus only on important issues and stop revisiting the same topics repeatedly because of a lack of buy-in which causes performance improvement initiatives to stall and die

     Create exceptional and sustainable, departmental outcomes

    Being a Great Leader Outside of Your Mind 

    Presenter: John Baldino

    Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 at 12PM

    Location: Virtual (Registrants receive access info via email)

    Being a Great Leader Outside of Your Mind


    If you ask tenured managers if they think they’re a good leader, most will answer affirmatively.  If you ask the staff they manage, you might hear a different answer.  Why do we wear rose-colored glasses in our minds regarding our ability to lead?

    In this webinar, we’ll tackle the contributing factors that blind managers to their ability to lead effectively.  Leadership development is heavily contingent on honest assessment, both external and internal.  We will work through the criteria that should appear on both assessments and how that is meant to chart a path for learning and development.
