IATF Member Buzz Roundup for July 2010

IATF members live in 35 countries and are doing amazing work.  Here's a sample of what's going on...

Assessments For Teambuilding

Mary Ann Masur at Synergy Consultants recently completed a team leadership development program at The Cleveland Clinic. The focus was on creating collaboration, managing conflict and understanding strengths and overdone strengths. Mary Ann used the Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI) as a tool for understanding motivational styles when things are going well and when conflict occurs. As a result of the program, participants increased their leadership style self awareness and gained a better understanding of how to interact effectively with their colleagues. They also increased their awareness of how the culture is impacted by their strengths.  Mary Ann lives in the Baltimore, MD area.  Contact Mary Ann by email to learn more:  [email protected]

Youth Camp Transforms

Rabbi Shmuly Rothman at Camp Gan Israel initiated a new staff training program based the skills he learned in the IATF Leader As Coach Fast Track Program.  Here's what he has to say...

We're off to an incredible start at our summer camp! The skills I learned at the Leader As Coach have made all the difference.  I have so much more time and "brain space" to use my talents as apposed to being caught up with the petty stuff. Hiring staff and empowering them was a whole new experience and we are reaping the benefits.

We have introduced a sustainable form of accountability along with a communication style that constantly urges the staff to recognize where they are being successful and to build on those successes. 

The positive nature of the "coach approach" has brought a new energy and higher standard to our camp and the effect is being felt on all fronts.

Thank you again for introducing me to the "coach approach", I love being part of this "revolution"

Contact Rabbi Shmuly via email to learn more about his camp and how he's leading his team using the coach approach.  [email protected]
