"Collaborating: A Way of life in the Workplace"©

"We Ain't a Group! We're a T.E.A.M.!"©

HERDING CATS© - Turning a Group into a T-E-A-M Effectively Today


Too often people work for themselves, as non-committed members of groups NOT as completely committed team members.

We will naturally work as team-like members in times of crisis yet rarely day to day on the job.

We can learn the strengths, skills, styles and techniques of how to create, develop and work in highly successful teams.

For many years the CP3 Colleagues have been doing keynote speeches, breakout sessions, workshops, training programs and college courses on Successful Teaming for people from supervisors to CEOs, Directors of agencies and owners of companies.


Here are sample session titles, descriptions and topics:

Teaming - Collaborating            


Collaborating Successfully -- As Human Beings our greatest capacity is our ability to become highly successful teams when we truly need to.  In today's workplace we need to learn to develop what is instinctive to us and capitalize on those skills and abilities in the typical working day when needed and not take only them for granted.



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.


Team people more successfully. . .

Turn your group of individuals into successful teams (small to entire organization)

Collaborating - Individuals Working Together

In today's workplace we need to benefit from the interconnected efforts of all of the people both internal and external in pairs, teams and groups. These 2 Collaborating programs are designed to develop effective skills in Teamwork, Team Building & Team Coordinating or Leading.



"Collaborating: A Way of life in the Workplace"

Topics Covered:

  • What are the differences between Groups & Teams?
  • How do we capitalize on team process in our department?
  • How do we take our people from a mob or bunch to a team?
  • What are different types of teams and teamwork?
  • How do we individually help our team to develop?
  • Are we a team now?


"We Ain't a Group! We're a T.E.A.M.!"

Learning to integrate vast forms of diversity instead of differences leads to the creation to highly successful teams from virtual to on-going.

  • Thinking Styles -- M.I.N.D. Design
  • Behavioral Styles -- Behavioral Patterns and Wants & Needs
  • Value Systems -- Out Value Systems
  • How do we combine differing to contradicting people into teams?
  • What will varying combinations of styles produce?
  • How can we select the most effective/productive teams within our overall department or organization?


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 tragedies 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 team like and become members of teams.
