Greg Efta

Our focus is on one thing... building a team! There is no question that the ability of organizations to build and nurture internal teams is paramount to their successes. Team building is also a concept that many organizations either claim to have or desperately need, but forgo because of greater perceived needs elsewhere. Improved teams, or “super teams,” do more than just work together, they rely on each other for success. This extra effort requires an organized approach to developing and supporting the team concept.

Remember, teams don't just happen...they are made to happen.

This program is lively, insightful and down to earth. It is based on over 5 years of research and development of teams from all types of organizations and offers specific “tried and true” techniques for team building success.

Greg begins his discussion at the earliest stages of development and progresses to those elements that can lead to long term growth. The session is suitable for any format and length making for a powerful and energetic keynote or an in depth workshop at six hours in length.
