Teamwork and Leadership Ideas Newsletter: December 2007

Dancing_elves It's Tom Heck, President & Founder of the IATF (second person from the left dressed as an elf - click image to enlarge) with your December 2007 edition of the IATF Teamwork & Leadership Ideas e-Newsletter. 

What an amazing and delightful year this has been.  I'm so grateful for the opportunity to share strategies, tactics and tools that support your good work building and leading teams.

I launched five years ago because I had a great sense of urgency about sharing resources that would promote win-win team consciousness worldwide.  I continue to add new and free resources to the site including a new Master List of Teambuilding Games that will help you find the activity you need.

The project I'm most excited about is the new 7-week distance learning leadership development program called the Leader As Coach Fast Track Program.

The Leader As Coach Fast Track Program includes weekly live and interactive TeleSeminars, weekly Group Coaching, Guest Speakers from the world team and leadership development, access to an online Leadership Resource Library (audio recordings, printable articles, self and team assessments, etc.), and more!

On Thursday December 13 I'm leading a free live TeleSeminar on the  Leader As Coach Fast Track Program  where I'll share the 7 Qualities of a Coach Leader.

Over the past several weeks I've been talking with some amazing people and working out some truly wonderful collaborations that will ultimately benefit YOU.  As the first quarter of 2007 unfolds you'll begin seeing new opportunities at the IATF that are designed to support you and the good work you do.

Here's to your health and happiness!
