The Energy Bus…

tap into your teams potential

Duration: Half Day

Course Description: The Energy Bus is an international best seller by author Jon Gordon who takes us on an “enlightening and inspiring ride, revealing 10 secrets for approaching life and work with the kind of positive, forward thinking that leads to true accomplishment - at work and at home”.  The session introduces how individual and team success is based upon core principles that may be found in an organization’s mission, vision, purpose, and goals statement.  The challenge is to foster an understanding of these foundational guiding principles and have all levels of your organization’s buy in.  Additionally, sharing the common goal aligns the energy and enthusiasm that is within all of us to perform at our highest potential in our work.
