How to Bring Teams Together to Move Mountains

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Karen Hudgins
  • Beth Hallmark

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Every organization wants to do the best job possible, often by providing terrific customer service and producing killer web content. And it usually starts out that way –– in the early stages. But after your ideas and concepts bounce from team to team, they often become watered down and ineffective.

Bringing people with different viewpoints and backgrounds together can be a challenge without taking precise steps, making sure each employee understands –– and is understood –– and how to effectively communicate and “on board” your teams toward your organization’s vision.

Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case. By bringing teams together and creating shared goals and communication plans, strategic visions can exist in eternal harmony.

This discussion will focus on methods to put your workplace’s teams on common ground with shared strategic vision and core competencies that result in a happy workplace, with high-performing, Zen-inspired employees.
