Fostering Fabulous Teams

This week’s radio show was the last one before Valentine’s Day so I left a few ideas on the table for you to consider for your honey or even for a colleague or friend.

1) On a deck of card, use a marker a write one reason per card. 52 reasons I love you or you are awesome to work with or …
2) Make a donation to a cause that is dear to their heart.
3) Buy then something you don’t like, but they love. My hubby bought me the CD of Le Miz. I know he hates it, so it made it extra-special that he bought it for me!

You will enjoy listening in to my interview with Bob Parker, author of The Pit Crew Challenge ( He specializes in helping teams perform optimally together and he does this in a very unique way using not only the analogy of a race car team but by actually bringing a race car team with him when he presents his programs across the country. Whether you’re talking about your work team, sports team or even your family team the ideas Bob shares will help.

For me one of the big takeaways was to remember to consider people before processes. Sometime we get so caught up in the tasks that we have to be doing, we forget that it’s the people behind the process that really make the difference. A little time invested in them can really influence the end results.
