Strong, interdependent teams do not simply happen by putting a group of people together. These teams are built on trust!
During this session, Jim and Dee will demonstrate how a Culture of Gentleness threads together, leading with emotional intelligence and focusing on building trust at all levels of support. They will share the work they have collaborated on for the past two years and how this work has directly correlated to helping leaders build strong teams to positively impact the people they serve/support.
When ensuring a culture of gentleness, not only with those we serve but also among our employees, we can sustain an authentic community and nurture lasting relationships.
