Turn Focus into Laser Beam Performance
Both leaders and organizations need to know how to pivot. Arm-chair hockey coaches can tell when a group of players on the bench are not functioning as a team. There is no humour, no encouragement of one another, and only individual focus. Teams that play like this will fail to use their combined strengths to achieve their goals. Progress, at best will be intermittent and at worst will regress. Using an approach that appreciates the gifts and abilities of each member, we will focus the power of the team into a laser beam of performance.
