Develop Successful Teams 

with our Region 1 Advisor, Sondra Nunez, DTM

As area and division directors, you serve as liaisons between districts and clubs; to accomplish all the responsibilities of these important roles, you depend on the teams you build. The effectiveness of these teams is a reflection of your ability to lead and motivate. You lay the groundwork for effective teamwork by creating and maintaining a team agreement at the beginning of your term. In this session, you examine a team agreement and discuss motivation and conflict-resolution techniques to keep your teams strong and productive.  Participants Workbook link attached below.
