Last year Drury, an interpersonal communications expert, presented two sold-out sessions on “A Passion for Service.” The sessions this year are titled “TEAM 2.0 — Together Everyone Accomplishes More.”
“The response was so positive last year that we invited him to return for another half-day workshop to talk about teambuilding in our businesses,” Bernadette Douglas, executive vice president, explained.
Drury was the national training consultant or the Zig Ziglar Corporation from 1985 to 1990. He speaks, trains and travels extensively and has proven to be one of the most effective and entertaining speakers in the industry.
Seating is limited, but two identical presentations will be offered for the convenience of local businesses. Session one, 8:30 to 11 a.m., and session two, 1 through 4 p.m., will allow employers to send employees in the morning and in the afternoon.
Topics will include 21st century team challenges, building trust — the glue of good team relationships, energizing hard work, taking initiative, solving problems together, giving the gift of honor — mutual respect, and taking charge of your attitude even when you’re having a bad day.
Drury also will guide participants in recharging the enthusiasm, fun and laughter, improving communication, developing effective listening skills, turning irate co-workers into supportive co-workers, overcoming stress and burnout, and the 29 most important words for great teamwork.
