Building Strong Teams to Survive and Pivot Together
Mark Kenny: Teamwork Keynote Speaker, Strategic Teamwork Advisor


The world has changed.  Our team is working with private and public sector leaders to safeguard and prepare their teams to survive and pivot in the coming days.  Specifically we build strong teams where:


Leaders and business units share information instead of operating in silos.


Teams know how to work together instead of wasting time on rifts and people issues.
