Building a Team You Can Trust

Do you struggle to get the results you want from your team? You hand over work, but you’re never sure it will be done the way you want it. You don’t want to micromanage, but you also don’t want work that’s not up to par. So, you end up taking it back and doing it yourself, until you are overworked and overwhelmed.

Imagine how different your work life would be if you were part of a team you could trust — with your direct reports and your peers — where people were committed and productive, crushing deadlines and delivering promotion-worthy results. Imagine how much could be accomplished...

In the workshop you'll learn:

  • The 3 most important things you can do to build trust and reduce conflict on any team
  • Why trying to do too much yourself is one of the WORST things you can do for your career, and what you can do instead
  • How to easily increase your influence and authority without coming across as pushy or hyper-competitive 

Focusing on the work where you add the most value can have an enormous impact on your career, and on your day-to-day satisfaction. In order to do that, you need a team you can trust.
