Build a stronger team – whether it's marketing, business development, technical, or other – that focuses on team strengths and develops into a cohesive, strong team. Too often, teams are either unbalanced (too many leaders, not enough doers), missing a critical skill (such as organization, stress tolerance, peacekeeping, communication), or replicas of the hiring manager, and it can create organizational management problems.

As recruitment is at an all-time high, and the great resignation takes hold in the A/E/C industry, it’s important to look beyond a resume to view how your team can function as a whole and individually. This interactive session will dive into using research-based strategies to uncover what it means to build a better team and provide you with an actionable plan to take back to your team.

Includes 2 Drink Tickets and Appetizers.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify team strengths and weaknesses (using an executive function test)
  • Identifying bias in yourself (to avoid a cookie-cutter team)
  • Create a list of competencies (not skills) related to job requirements
  • Develop a process for recruiting those competencies and strengths
  • Nurture and mentor each individual contributor’s strengths
