Lean, Mean, Teaming Machines


Teams are as old as Hammurabi. For thousands of years team was the unit for small-scale activity— fighting, farming, revolution, etc. During the industrial revolution, assembly machinery changed all that. This era introduced hierarchy, organizational structure, and bureaucracy, resulting in top-down people control. People were individual machines under the control of top-down leadership and management; they were utilized for maximum productivity. The problem, however, is that people are not machines. We function best in relationship with a purpose driving us. Given time and space to work together, trust is built and tremendous synergy released to produce something greater than the sum of it’s parts!

This 2-3 hour workshop includes interactive breakout activities and addresses the following four aspects of teamwork:
  • The WHY Behind Teams
  • There is no “I” in Team
  • The “I” in W-I-nning Teams
  • High Performing Teams
