Keynote Speaking at ASHRM on Building Great Teams & Maximizing Employee Engagement

Looking forward to being the keynote speaker at the Acadiana Society for Human Resource Management SHRM event in Lafayette, LA next week!

Quickly Maximize Performance, Engagement, Teamwork, and Problem-Solving

Think about the best team you’ve ever been on. The team that was the most collaborative, connected, and productive. How did it feel to be connected to something bigger and feel like you could accomplish anything? What if you could recreate that feeling, teamwork, and success on every team you were on? What if you could create it across your entire organization? 

What you just thought of is the most powerful business asset. It’s the foundation for a highly successful “people strategy.”

Teamwork is the number one “soft skill” every employee must master. It’s also the least understood skill.

In this interactive session, attendees will learn how to “dial in” to the right behaviors to maximize employee engagement, teamwork, and performance to make a significant impact in their organizations. They’ll also play the Cards Against Mundanity game (in small groups) so they’ll experience how these strategies will work for them along with building relationships with other attendees.

More than 20,000 employees have played Cards Against Mundanity in organizations such as Amazon, Southwest Airlines, Ernst & Young, Google, Gillette, Microsoft, Oracle, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Worldwide Express, CareHere, Oklahoma City Thunder (NBA team), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Novartis, Merck, Intel, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and many others. It’s been used in every size organization and every industry. 

Attendees will:

  • Learn the “secret” strategies to quickly maximize performance, engagement, teamwork, and problem-solving.
  • Discover how to build high levels of trust both internally and externally with third-parties to instantly create great working relationships and maximize productivity.
  • Receive the team building game, Cards Against Mundanity, that they can use in their organization, along with follow-up activities.
  • Walk away with 11 best practices on how to manage, interact and engage (up, down and across) much more effectively to maximize teamwork and reduce conflicts.

Cards Against Mundanity Team Building Game (Video) at Minnesota Regional HR Conference – TCSHRM

Speaking in Minneapolis @TCSHRM Spring Conference “All In!” Spoke at Oklahoma State SHRm Conference yesterday. Video clip from small group team building game we played, Cards Against Mundanity, to skyrocket trust in minutes to maximize teamwork, performance, engagement and effort. 

Takes 200-400+ hours to build close work relationships. This does it in 45 minutes. It’s essential for today’s agile workforce and key piece of any “People Strategy”. 

Attendees experienced why this process will work for them & get a tool to use!

Speaker Testimonial from Social Media Dallas Keynote Speech

“Jason was an excellent and very motivational speaker at our April Social Media Dallas event. His innovative framework for building successful and efficient teams is without a doubt a breakthrough practice that every business can and should immediately implement. Our members really enjoyed playing his Cards Against Mundanity game and getting to know each other. We were all very impressed with his ability to connect with the audience and provide valuable takeaways! We hope to have Jason back as a key speaker for next year!”

My Team Building Speech at PRSA Southwest District Conference on Building the Highest Performing Teams in Minutes

You can see above the great discussions that went on today in Houston at the PRSA Southwest District Conference at my presentation on team building.

Click on the above links to the see the small group interactions.

We discussed how to build the highest performing teams today. We also played by team building game, Cards Against Mundanity, in small groups so everyone could interactively experience why these strategies and tools will help them perform, collaborate and communicate much, much better.

Teamwork is the most important soft skill moving forward (slightly ahead of self awareness). It’s the least understood and very few people can run great teams. But it’s a critical skill everyone needs. You aren’t born with it. You have to learn it just like a technical skill and it’s just as complicated. But there are is a fast track process to building great teams. And you can apply it to third parties such as customers, partners, media and analysts.

CardsAgainstMundanity.com – Get the free PDF game and consider doing either an in-person workshop or assisted remote one. Soon I’ll be launching a physical, poker style cards you can use.
