Teresa Harlow Rock n Roll Keynote Speaker

Business efforts involve products (or services), processes, and people. One of these three is not getting its fair share of attention—people! Few business efforts are accomplished start to finish by a single person. Teamwork and collaboration are the key to optimizing business team performance.

With this in mind, shouldn’t investing in your team’s collaboration skills be a top priority? And if you’re going to invest, you need an expert.

Bring collaboration expertise into your organization with the Team Optimization Program, a collection of best practices Teresa developed during her 34 years leading large corporate programs. Your team will learn how to improve collaboration and elevate results as they participate in Teresa’s one-of-a-kind immersive keynote “Collaborate Like A Rock Star!” and series of ROCKshops tailored to your business needs.

I REALLY enjoyed Teresa and her collaboration training event! It really hit home with me. I’ve been doing the same work for over 30 years and my tolerance level has dwindled.

3 Cs of Collaboration “ROCKshop”

Workshops are boring. ROCKshops are FUN!

Great for: Technology Teams, Leadership Training, Operations Managers, Educator Training, Consulting Firms, Sales Teams

Description: Toxic communications can destroy relationships and derail business efforts. What are you doing to ensure your teams know how to prevent or diffuse hostility and move from combative to collaborative when tensions flare?

During this interactive workshop ROCKshop, Teresa helps your group to identify the specific challenges which are holding them back and work through the musical exercise to gain an understanding of how they can leverage the 3 Cs of Collaboration to resolve their specific issues.

Continuing to use the rock band as her inspiration, Teresa provides every attendee with a childhood music instrument. But this time, rather than everyone learning the same song, the group is broken into smaller ensembles to use the 3 Cs to form their band and learn to play a song together from the list provided.

As participants collaborate in groups applying the 3 Cs in their efforts, they practice using the Collaboration Playlist to build strong relationships and restore harmony where there is discord.

Participants will also be challenged to apply the 3 Cs to their most difficult relationships. Rather than have interactions with such individuals devolve into unproductive exchanges that just make matters worse, participants will learn how to redirect hostility and reconcile combative behavior.

What The Audience Will Leave With

    • The 3 Cs of Collaboration Musical Score
    • A plan, leveraging the 3 Cs Playlist, to address the challenges defined by the client in-advance AND the participants during the session
    • One-of-a-kind memories of forming a rock band and making music with colleagues

Duration: 2 – 4 hours customized to client’s needs and team size
