Breakfast: Family Feeling But Team Culture at Work

  • Tue, August 06, 2019
  • 8:45 AM - 10:00 AM
  • BookPeople, 603 N. Lamar Blvd.


They're your employees but we often think of our employees as family. Join us as our speaker, Caroline Valentine, explores the dynamics of "family" and your team.

Leaders want happy, supportive and loyal employees so a “we are family” culture seems perfect until a major conflict and then it’s perfectly awful and uncomfortable, like Thanksgiving with the relative we really don't want to sit next to at the dinner table. The culture we are really seeking is a “winning team.” So how do we achieve this? This presentation and discussion will explore the dynamics of both family and team cultures and as well as key steps to achieving successful working relationships.
