The spontaneous team keynote



Free agency has devastated the NFL dynasties of old. Championship teams are quickly picked apart for their talent. The old Hollywood studio system has been replaced by ad hoc teams of writers, actors, and crew members who coalesce around a project and then quickly disperse when the film is in the can.

What's true for football and Hollywood is true for organizations of all stripes. Talent is quick to move on. (Even The Beatles broke up.) Multi-disciplinary teams come together for a short project and quickly disband. How can you build an effective team when the players change so quickly?

This programs reveals how great teams craft and embody their mission, dodge distracting politics and toxic gossip, deal with problems and failures, leverage their diversity, and have each other’s backs. Any team can propel itself to excellence. This keynote shows how.
