A BETTER WAY TO DRIVE SUCCESS

Prepare your team to achieve its most important objectives.

I started Mission Critical Teams™ to combine leadership and team work with best practices for strategic and action planning.

I spent over 20 years in corporate jobs in the renewable energy and teleconferencing sectors.
I led cross functional teams in business development, training and large-scale meeting planning.  My teams consistently increased existing account revenues by 15-38% annually for fortune 500 clients like JP Morgan, Wal-Mart, 3M, Sun Microsystems and First Union National Bank.

In these roles I discovered my passion and ability to build high performance teams. I found that when people are driving for a shared set of goals, all stakeholders benefit and results exceed expectations.

Then, things changed in my corporate world. In the last five years of my corporate career, multiple mergers and acquisitions had negative consequences: morale plummeted because of a lack of trust in new corporate leadership, and team members were frustrated with top down command and coercion and the fear of speaking openly.

I knew first hand what worked, and I wanted to bring successful practices to teams that really wanted better performance.

 

That’s why I built Mission Critical Teams™ for teams that want to fire on all cylinders.—focused, aligned and accountable to hit their most important objectives.

  • They develop strategies and action plans focused on the right goals
  • They implement and track their performance with complete accountability to individuals and the entire team
  • They roll it together with best practices for leadership and teamwork

It’s not only possible.  It is mandatory for success.

 

Here’s my belief: when you integrate these practices into a cohesive program, the results of the team are dramatically better than when these components are handled separately.

 

Specializing in corporate teams

Today, I work with teams who have mission critical goals to achieve.  Mission critical means failure is not an option. Mission Critical Teams™ develop a sense of resolve to succeed, no matter what.  They know how to harness the efforts of all members to get extraordinary results.

It’s not only possible.  It is mandatory for success.
