TEAMING CATS©

Turning a Group into a T-E-A-M Effectively Today

Many jokes have been told about how TEAMING AMERICANS is like HERDING CATS. In many ways that is often the case.  Seldom throughout our school years are we taught how to be team members or how to lead teams.  Perhaps if we play sports we learn some things.  Yet seldom the learnings are purely accidental side results and not direct lessons.  Then in our workplaces we expected to become strongly effective, caring, devoted, team members.

Not Invented Here
Not In Our Department
That’s Not My Job

Are almost paradigms in the minds and hearts of too many people and organizations.

We all can learn to become Strongly Successful Team members.
We all can learn how to better lead Successful Teams

Evidence continually shows that diverse groups of people can work effectively in team-like manner when chaos or trajedies happen.  Hurricanes, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, forest fires all provide examples how most people can step forward and work in spontaneous teams.  Yet most of them in their every day lives rarely work in teams.

This session is planned to help even the most team resistant people accept and begin to appreciate the value of learning to become more teamlike and become members of teams.

WE KEEP MISSING THE HOOP!

Stop Being Just a Group and Become a Successful T*E*A*M

People gather. They cluster. They form groups intentionally or by plan. When they grow into a T*E*A*M is when they become focused and successful. Too often we act like groups instead of working like TEAMS. This session will help you better understand the differences between being a choatic unsuccessful group and how to become a dynamic and successful TEAM.

SOLUTIONS REQUIRE DOZENS OF DOZENS
OF IDEAS FIRST©

Turning any department or company into a Solution Focus Team

Most of the time when we ask other people for ideas they may share 2 or 3.  Often when we are asked with give 2 or 3 to maybe 6.  In the workplace we need 1000s to 10s of thousands of ideas to choose from to solve many small to giant problems. With training and practice we all can generate 100s to 1000s of ideas.  This session is designed to help people get past basic CREATIVE G.A.P.S. that stop most of us from being creative to learning a mixture of creative thinking tools, techniques, systems, models to how to create their own to suit the situations they are in, along with understanding the principles and values of CREATIVE THINKING STYLES.
