Bay area workshops speaker - testimonial Keynote speaker

9 out of 10 employees agree that they would remain at their jobs longer if their companies invested in their career development.

Are you investing in your employees’ growth?

Especially in times of great change, taking time to know, understand, and build trust among your teams via team building workshops can be the most important investment that you make. Increase retention, productivity, efficiency, and the speed at which your team can move because they innately know and understand each other.

Team building workshops play a crucial role, particularly during times of significant change. By dedicating time to getting to know, understand, and build trust among team members, you can make a valuable investment in your organization. The benefits of team building workshops are manifold, ranging from increased retention and productivity to enhanced efficiency and agility within your team.

When team members have a deep understanding of one another, they can work together more harmoniously and effectively. The shared knowledge and understanding fostered through team building workshops enable team members to anticipate each other's needs, communicate more efficiently, and collaborate seamlessly. This heightened level of cohesion translates into improved performance and the ability to navigate challenges with greater ease.

Trust, a cornerstone of successful teamwork, is built gradually through open communication, shared experiences, and a safe environment where team members feel comfortable expressing their ideas and concerns. Team building workshops provide the opportunity for individuals to connect on a personal level, breaking down barriers and creating a sense of camaraderie. As trust grows, team members become more willing to take risks, share their expertise, and support one another, ultimately leading to a more productive and innovative team dynamic.

Additionally, team building workshops help identify and leverage the unique strengths and talents of individual team members. By encouraging collaboration and emphasizing the value of diverse perspectives, these workshops foster an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and empowered. As a result, team members are more likely to contribute their best work and feel a sense of ownership and pride in their collective accomplishments.

Investing in team building workshops demonstrates a commitment to your team's well-being and success. It shows that you recognize the importance of nurturing relationships, fostering trust, and creating a positive work environment. By prioritizing team cohesion and investing in your team's development, you lay the foundation for a resilient and high-performing group that can adapt to change, overcome obstacles, and achieve shared goals.

Bay area workshops - testimonial

"There is no single phrase I can use to describe the impact that Amy had on the attendees to the workshop; she is a rock star, she is passionate, literally puts the team on her shoulders, and teaches you how to run with it!

Latinx@Cloudera, wanted to sponsor a workshop to empower all employees to reach their full potential; We found Amy and she took the monumental task of building a custom workshop and optimizing it for a live room AND remote offices, and then she delivered it in one event! She is the biggest champion of remote employee enablement!

During the session, nobody blinked, you could feel the engagement because of the number and depth of the questions asked. Amy handled the situation perfectly, giving timely answers but never losing track of the workshop. Everybody felt they were an essential part of the process!

In a data-driven company like Cloudera, everything has a purpose and has to be measured. In some cases, metrics are difficult to establish, and the company's market situation made it more challenging to track down results.

However, shortly after the workshop, we saw an increase in employee-led projects across the company, more ERGs organizing events, and more cross-team collaboration, simply because more people understood their roles in leading efforts.

I would absolutely recommend Amy and I'm already looking forward to hosting another leadership workshop at my new company."

- Angel C., Product Marketing Manager
