Description: A team divided cannot stand. But a team connected multiplies.

This is why talent acquisition and retention – which is expensive, time-consuming, and difficult – is not nearly as important as talent multiplication.

Talent multiplication works like this: one Clydesdale horse can pull a ton. Two Clydesdales – connected together properly – can pull ELEVEN tons. Connection is how mediocre talent on a top team outperforms top talent on a mediocre team. This is how an organization with limited resources can compete with the biggest players – by connecting together properly.

This program teaches the 7 traits of highly connected teams so your teams can operate at a far higher level than the sum of their parts.
