Interpersonal Alchemy: The Magic Behind High-Performing Teams

About the Presentation

Alchemy is that seemingly magical process of transforming something worthless into something priceless. Once piece of magic many of us seek to understand is how to turn that “OK” group of people into a kick-butt, high performing team. We believe there must be some sort of magic at play with these teams; but it’s no magic, rather it has everything to do with how these people connect with each other. During this session Mark will explore the magical elements that help them rise above the rest, including how they work with each other and their overall work environment. He’ll also review several different techniques you can immediately start using to initiate that magical chemical reaction of high performance in your team. So, join Mark in his laboratory and unleash your inner alchemist.
