This month's training will feature Neil Staker, who will give us insight into team building and collaborating. The title of his presentation is: "TALK IS CHEAP, MISUNDERSTANDINGS ARE EXPENSIVE."
The free flow of information and feedback are critical to working together and making the right decisions—but it isn't easy. We talk about the same things over and over, we avoid and argue, we try sarcasm and being passive aggressive. What works? Join Neil Staker for an amazing hour. You'll laugh, you'll gain incredible insight, and you'll walk away with tools to talk more effectively in any situation.
Neil can be a boring guy. He hasn’t seen a movie since the Reagan administration. Ask him what he likes to do for fun, and he’ll answer: “Yardwork.” (Seriously.) But talk to him about people, organizations, or improvement and out of that dull cocoon a fascinating butterfly will emerge. He’s turned his tightly-wound practicality into a decades-long career helping companies increase efficiency. Clients find him personable, knowledgable, and incredibly helpful.
