September Luncheon (9/17)

"Team Building on a Dime" Presented by Allison Brown, Caroline Becker and Pam Mack

This session is designed for HR professionals who are interested in driving their organization’s talent management initiatives forward and who want low-cost, quick and easy team building strategies that will enhance inclusiveness, communication, collaboration and teamwork. Many HR professionals are being called on expand their skills repertoire to accommodate this type of need in organizations.

Allison Brown, GPHR, SPHR-CA, Pam Mack and Caroline Becker, SPHR will take you through the entire process of selecting a team building activity that suits the culture of your company. They will also engage participants in how to effectively manage activity debriefs.

This interactive session includes hands on practice with at least five activities designed to overcome common challenges for teams. You will also learn how to build on strengths and differences, select inclusive activities, and avoid common pitfalls that often derail the team-building effort. We will focus on ways to encourage team participation to inspire performance and a success mindset.

You'll leave equipped with tools and the motivation to put these teambuilding ideas in action for your organization. This session will be facilitated in a train-the-trainer style so that participants can immediately implement the solutions and also train other leaders on how to use them.

Organizations often turn to HR for ideas and support in maintaining a positive, productive and cohesive workplace environment through strong employee engagement. This session helps support this goal.
