A dynamic public speaker, Teresa uses the power of storytelling and her flair for creative presentation to deliver a passionate and entertaining experience. Your audience will leave feeling inspired and empowered to improve every relationship in their lives.
Teresa has spent over 30 years in corporate settings helping teams and individuals achieve feats they thought were impossible. She did this by provoking them to think creatively and question the limits they imposed on themselves and their teams. Once liberated to think beyond their present state, she worked with them to chart a new path to recast the impossible as possible.
The Message: Drawing on the Golden Rule principle, Teresa will help your audience to discover how to use empathy to establish a roadmap that will transform their most combative relationships into collaborative ones. Who doesn’t want to overcome awkward interactions, prevent missteps, and build truly caring relationships with those most important to us?
Whether you’re looking for a keynote speaker, a workshop facilitator, or a speaker series topic for employees or clients, Teresa’s inspiring message will help your group to free themselves of limiting beliefs. They’ll leave prepared to improve relationships with family, co-workers, friends, and even those they find most challenging.
Leadership Retreats: Combative to Collaborative Team Transformation
There’s a lot of talk among leaders about busting through limits, breaking down barriers, and being inclusive. But what about busting through the limits we place on how we view our teammates and customers? How do we become more accepting of those with whom we disagree? How do we keep our differences from derailing our efforts? How do we truly embrace our diversity and shatter prejudice? It doesn’t just happen because someone tells us that’s how we must be. It requires a paradigm shift. If we could understand how to meet people where they are, could we collaborate more affectively with them? Absolutely!
The Combative to Collaborative Team Transformation will provide leaders an opportunity to reset how they view their teams, their customers, and their peers. Using the power of empathy, Teresa will lead your team through thought-provoking interactive exercises that will shift them from a combative to collaborative mindset. Participants will leave with tools they can put to use immediately to build compassionate relationships with their teams, clients, and peers. They will leave armed with a new mindset that will supercharge collaboration and create a truly caring culture across your organization.
