Leaders. What are you doing to build your team?

Building a Strong Team

The Summer Olympics begin this week following a one year delay as a result of the COVID pandemic. While we tend to focus on great individual achievements, most athletes are participating as part of an Olympic TEAM, assembled from among athletes with a wide variety of talent and experience.

How do you get your initiatives back on track?
