WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR A CEO AND THEIR BUSINESS
You want your team to deliver results? They’ve got to feel encouraged, supported, and challenged. This isn’t opinion. It’s science. We’ll bring you three tools – and practice with them – to help establish and maintain the supportive and demanding relationships that drive results… Oh, and fulfillment.

SPECIFIC TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES YOU WILL LEARN AND PRACTICE
You will learn “got-your-back” leadership principles:
• Yay for Failing – actively change the relationship to making public errors
• Be Obvious – Nothing goes without saying, and no one’s listening before there’s a connection
• Yes, And – Find common ground and build on that. Acceptance need not imply agreement. Disagree without being disagreeable

QUESTIONS THE CEO SHOULD BE ASKING
• What is the interpersonal climate like in my team?
• Are people transparent with me and with each other?
• On a scale from Yugo to Ferrari, how well does the machinery of teamwork function in my organization?

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Aaron Schmookler has a passion for finding the intersection between play and innovation, and helping people live and work there. A love of collaboration and of excellence in communication has driven Aaron to build teams and nurture creativity. Businesses and organizations large and small, from Microsoft to neighborhood non-profits have used Aaron’s support to improve communication, increase innovation, and manage conflict on both coasts.

 

Adam Utley has been working for 5 years to help teams build habits that lead to higher accountability, more fulfillment, and work cultures that inspire people. He does this by training people to practice a language he loves: the language of improvisation. What he’s found in working with business leaders at every level is that this language resonates with all personality types, and that it helps to connect people with their teammates and paves the way for greater results with less effort.
