Tiffany's Tip of the Month
Do You Work on a 'High Performance Team'?
Though people can sometimes be frustrating to work with, most of the time, we need to work together to get work done.
During training classes, I often tell participants that "I can teach you all these project management (or business analysis) tools and techniques, but if you don't know how to work well with people, then you won't be successful. That's why I also do 'people skills' training."
To this end, Ready2ACT is collaborating with Ownership Thinking to deliver a one-hour webinar on "Building High Performance Teams". On August 17, we'll be discussing how to develop the 8 attributes of high-performing teams based upon my research and over 25 years of experience.
The eight attributes are:
- Clear vision and common values
- SMART goals
- Strong sponsorship and resources
- Right mix of talent
- Clearly defined roles and responsibilities
- Mutual trust, accountability, and support
- Commitment to collective results
- High degree of cooperation and collaboration
Do you work on a high-performance team? You can check your team's performance, by taking a free High Performance Team Assessment, developed for Ready2ACT clients.
Please join us on August 17 during the webinar or contact us for more information on how we can help you with Building High Performance Teams.

Do you love meetings?
Most people want to spend their time wisely, and if your meetings are a waste of time, you've also lost productivity, employee engagement, morale, and dollars. Ready2ACT wants all your meetings to be valuable, so we offer consulting and facilitation services.
Tiffany's clients respectfully call her the "cat herder" (see the funny video on herding cats below).
Having an objective partner who is well-versed in best practices at over 700 companies can help your teams collaborate in an effective and efficient manner to improve projects and processes.
If you want a highly-skilled facilitator with over 25 years of experience to plan and facilitate your next critically important meeting to get quality results, contact us.
By the way, if you want to learn how to plan and deliver effective meetings and presentations, join us for "Facilitation and Presentation Skills", November 28 and 29, 2012
at our Ready2ACT Training Center. This 2-day workshop is an excellent
way to build leadership skills and earn 16 PDUs in an interactive and fun environment with other Denver area professionals.
Understand Your Stakeholder's Needs
Are you responsible for identifying stakeholders, understanding their needs, meeting their expectations, and managing them?
If so, a Business Analysis class would help you do all that plus control scope, determine quality requirements, and improve customer satisfaction resulting in less rework and greater chances of meeting deadlines and budgets.
If that sounds good to you, please join us Oct. 10-12, 2012 for our "Practicing Business Analysis" workshop in Denver, CO. You'll be amazed at how learning simple, but proven tools and techniques will make your job so much easier while increasing your effectiveness. |
