Creating High-Performing Teams | October 14, 2015

Want to create an environment where people are especially motivated to do their best work? Learn powerful, actionable ideas to build and sustain a culture of high performance that allow your team to effectively execute strategies. Not just for managers, this session also teaches you how to provide feedback so it can be heard and how to use others’ opinions to build your own effectiveness and productivity.

From a 2014 Workshop attendee:  “The communication world is growing day by day and like any sales manager, I want to be sure our time is used in the most meaningful ways. I don’t want to take employees down the wrong path with a speaker they can’t relate to or immediately put into their daily practice.  I believe Darcy’s style of motivation shares a strong message with excellent flow and continuity that can relate to any business scenario.  She captures the entire audience and keeps them engaged by getting them involved through her humor, storytelling and a great spirit!  Darcy challenges us to look at our daily work life and balance it with what we can control.  Darcy’s enthusiasm and passion for her work are highly contagious and are the foundation for her success.”
