Schedule a True Colors to build your team!

It may seem impossible for individuals with different values, strengths, backgrounds and needs to work together as a cohesive team. But, it’s not.

The key lies in understanding. Once individuals understand the needs and stressors of others, they can interact in ways that promote team cohesion and empathy.

An effective team gets results and meets goals. That’s what you want. An unproductive team costs you money, energy and even valuable staffers.

Schedule a True Colors Team-building training. This is the all important first step in equipping your team to understand, appreciate and learn how to celebrate what each person brings to the team dynamic.

Your Personality and Your Leadership Style

Your Personality and Your Leadership Style

Let’s ponder Your Personality and Your Leadership Style.

Managing people can be tricky. No, it is tricky.  There are hurdles, challenges and a multitude of tests.  If you ever Google terms like “being a good manager” or “tips for managers”, hundreds of results surface. Some are good.  Others are worthy of an instant click on the noble “back” arrow.

We provided training for youth worksers in organizations in Kansas City such as: Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Girl Scouts, Anytown, Whatsoever Community Center, Synergy Services and many more.

The AYD training teaches Kansas City youth workers the “science” associated with working with young people.  Our other modules (like True Colors and parent involvement trainings) helped organizations cultivate welcoming and effective culture within the organization.

YouthNet is gone and I’m now a consultant focusing on Kansas City team-building training.  As a consultant, I deliver team-building training and personal effectiveness modules to change negative thinking (which soon impact performance), inept practices and strengthen teams in positive, lasting ways.

Hey, culture is where it’s at! I know that’s not grammatically correct, but it’s true! I know how to begin to change your workplace culture and I will work with you to help.

 

If you can change your culture you will impact performance. I’m talking about both team and personal performance.
