Everybody craves teamwork, but teamwork doesn’t happen without good teammates—individuals who put the needs of the team ahead of their own agendas. Discover how implementing a fresh approach to improving teamwork can lead students, staff, and community members to become invested teammates.
In this session, you will learn how to use social-emotional learning to build teammates who care, share, and listen. You’ll investigate why incentivizing teamwork without establishing specific parameters for what it means to be a good teammate produces adverse results. You’ll explore the five key features of good teammates (Active, Loyal, Invested, Viral, and Empathetic) and acquire several strategies for integrating these behaviors into your team-building repertoire. You will exit this session inspired to become a better teammate and equipped to help the other members of your team become driven to do the same.
