FASTER TOGETHER: Accelerating Your Team's Collective Productivity

Even the best single person can’t succeed alone. Neither can you. Individual productivity is just the beginning of business profitability; the real winner is team productivity. While sports teams may have stand-outs who pull the team’s ranking upward — Peyton Manning and Lebron James come to mind — they couldn’t do their jobs if everyone wasn’t in there supporting them to the best of their abilities. When done well, the team wins championships.

Today’s workplaces require people who can “team well.” Yes, you have to use email and communicate and go to meetings. Yes, there will always be someone who works more slowly. Yes, you have to get agreement on some decisions. But a collective effort is much faster than an individual effort, in almost all instances. It takes less time to get things done with a team. This presentation will teach The Four “Keys” to Becoming a F-A-S-T Team:

  • FAIRNESS: Proper under the rules; honest; just; straightf
  • ACCOUNTABILITY: Responsible to someone or for some action; answerable; within one’s power, control, or
  • SYSTEMS-THINKING: One impacts the whole; interrelated linkages and interactions between components; a set of correlated
  • TECHNOLOGY: Specific methods, materials, and devices used to exchange information; creation and use of technical means; use of knowledge to solve practical

This is Laura Stack’s LEADERSHIP EXECUTION keynote that teaches leaders how to create agile organizations by executing real-time strategic priorities. Laura believes a leader’s biggest challenge isn’t creating the strategy—it’s executing the strategy. Today, strategy and execution are part of the same process, because of the speed at which organizations need to change. So if we presume your strategy is right on, how do you get your team to nail it? In this innovative program, Stack discusses how her LEAD formula has helped her clients’ leaders quickly drive strategic initiatives and get great results from their teams She discusses the Four Factors in Successful Execution:

L = Leverage
E = Environment
A = Alignment
D = Drive

Due to competitive pressures, leaders don’t have time to do “strategic planning” as they did in the past, but there is plenty of time to design a culture where your people will tell you how to achieve your priorities. The pressures on an organization to move quickly mirror the pressures individuals face on a personal level, so leaders will create better results if they engage their team members and create high-performing cultures, full of strategic thinkers
