Event overview

Learn more about our team

According to a survey conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership, 91% of respondents agreed with the statement, “Teams are central to organizational success,” and 87% said, “Our team collaborating with other teams is essential for success.”

Clearly, teams are a vital part of almost every organization, which are depending on them to use resources more effectively, solve problems more creatively, and provide greater productivity than individual employees working alone.

The goal of every team is to perform at its highest level, and the secret to achieving high performance is this—having team members who CARE. Care in the literal sense, as well as in the sense of the acronym for the following traits: Communication, Ability, Results, and Esprit de corps. These four traits are the foundation of team excellence. You will find practical strategies for developing each trait throughout the remainder of the program.
