Join MSCA's Highest-Rated Speaker Ever
2015 Webinar Series
From the MSCA conference speaker who taught you how to navigate through “human weirdness” and how to move from stuck to high-performance, Steve Thomas, MSCA’s highest ranked conference speaker to-date, will present our newest webinar series, The Team Thing.
Almost every leader wants to build a “team” within his or her organization. The challenge is, what does “team” mean? What is it that leaders are talking about when they want to build a sense of team? Everyone seems to have his or her own definition, but Steve Thomas will teach you what it truly is (and isn’t), and how to embody it as a team player and a leader.
Scheduled dates are:
- February 11 - 1 p.m. EST - Rethink the TEAM Thing
During this first session, Steve will teach you how to rethink the idea of a team. You will learn how to identify your own philosophy of what "team" means and implement the foundational effectiveness of teamwork. Steve will also discuss how to make the shift from "group mode" to a true team.
- April 1 - 1 p.m. EDT - The TEAM Leader
In this second session, Steve Thomas will discuss what it means to be a “follow-able” leader. There are four main qualities that people look for in a leader that also determine whether they will follow him or her. Steve will share what they are and introduce practices you can apply to ensure that you're the leader that others look to.
- June 3 - 1 p.m. EDT - The Effective TEAM Player
Everyday there are four kinds of team players that come to work, so you need to be aware of what and who you have on the team. To create effective teams, you must be able to clearly define what an effective team player looks like so everyone knows what's expected and can perform. If you don't, you may not get what you want, and the team will be confused and frustrated. In this third session, Steve Thomas will teach you exactly what that effective team player looks like so you know how to best structure your team for success.
- September 2 - 1 p.m. EDT - Foundations of Effective TEAM
Building a team is like building anything else – you have to create a solid foundation first. Otherwise, you will eventually find yourself having to invest additional resources into unearthing the faulty structure before beginning the process again. But, once the proper groundwork is laid, development can progress. In this webinar, we will discuss the make-up of a solid team foundation and how to achieve it from the ground up as well as how to rebuild it.
