Speaker Series - Bruce Brown
Speaker: Bruce Brown
Lecture Topic: "The First Steps to Great Teams"
Room D308 - 7:30 pm
Presented by the GP College and Community Lecture Series
This presentation is great for coaches, community leaders, and business people as it is an in-depth look at the first two things that must be done when coaches and leaders are building successful and effective teams. The first objective is creating guiding principles, which examines establishing core covenants, an identity, and vision. The second thing coaches and leaders must do is have pride; Bruce will examine how to establish an “inner circle” based upon the shared joys and successes of the team.
