The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley (Human Resources)

Why do some team members not get along? What is the best way to get new teams and ad-hoc teams to maximize their performance in the least amount of time? How can meetings be designed to achieve useful outcomes?

We were joined today by author, Valerie Patrick to discuss her book, When Bad Teams Happen to Good People.

Teams are the source of problem-solving and innovation that today’s organizations need to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex and challenging marketplace.

Teamwork is hard because there is no magic formula or step-by-step procedure to ensure results. Think of a programmer asked to develop new features for a cell phone: they write new code, test the code, troubleshoot problems encountered, revise the code, and repeat the testing process until the new features work without problems. Similarly, a team leader asked to deliver specified outcomes develops a plan, runs team meetings, troubleshoots problems encountered, revises the plan, and repeats until the team outcomes are achieved. The difference is that a programmer has tools to help streamline troubleshooting, while team leaders do not—until now.

Whether you're wondering if you are in the right career, looking to change job roles, or trying to reduce conflict and improve relationships at work and at home, you must begin by fully understanding your own interests and needs, and how they drive your ultimate happiness as well as unleash your stress points. Used by millions of people worldwide, The Birkman Method is the only personality-assessment tool that reaches beyond self-described behavior and situational analysis to unravel the DNA underpinning workplace satisfaction and productivity.

Sharon Birkman Fink has served as Birkman International, Inc.'s President and CEO since 2002. Originally trained as a singer/musician, Sharon was a National Merit Scholar and Woodrow Wilson Fellow who completed a Master's degree in Music at the University of Texas. She asserts that "any child raised in a family business is always a part of the business" and this makes her Birkman tenure very long indeed.
She is married to international opera performer and 2012 Grammy award winner, Richard Paul Fink, a dramatic baritone who sings regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and has three daughters. Sharon is involved with several charitable and civic organizations in the Houston area and is member of the Board of Directors of the Escape Foundation. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of Goodwill Industries of Houston.

From Bully to Bulls-Eye reveals the deep-seated dangers of bullying to everyone who works. It pinpoints the identifying characteristics of bullies and outlines how bullying undermines corporate profitability and value and how CEOs and boards can remedy it.
