Occasionally we participate in a group that inspires us to describe the experience as “powerful” or simply “wow.” Why are some teams described in such exceptional terms, while most are not? What do extraordinary groups have in common that separates them from all the rest? What can be done to create these terrific results more often?
Hopa Mountain, a Bozeman-based nonprofit organization, invites you to participate in a workshop led by Geoff Bellman on “How to Create Extraordinary Groups” on Thursday, October 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the C’Mon Inn. The cost of the workshop is $30 for members and $35 for non-members, which includes lunch.
In this session, Geoff Bellman, who co-authored the book Extraordinary Groups with Kathleen Ryan, will demystify the answers to these compelling questions. Among other things, he will:
• Introduce a new approach for creating extraordinary experiences and results in teams
• Identify the key characteristics that define exceptional teams
• Provide practical tools to help you create a stronger team to realize extraordinary experiences and team success
