A Proposal for Building Purposeful Teams
Thursday, April 15, 1:30 PM-2:30 PM EDT

We’ve all been there. Whether you are an independent consultant, work in a small business or work for a worldwide organization, we’ve all worked on projects with teams that work well and teams that don’t work. We know what happens when teams are broken - and we all know what that feels like - late nights, cold pizza, hurt feelings, and just plain bad work. Deadlines are missed, fingers are pointed, blame is passed all around.

As a proposal manager and consultant, Carrie Ann Williams of Andana Consulting worked on diverse teams with SMEs, capture managers, editors, writers, and designers. After observing what works, she determined there are five distinct elements that go into creating a high performing team: Purpose, collaboration, process, communication, and celebration. In this session, she will stories and insights from teams that worked and teams that didn’t.

Learning Objectives:

  • Elements needed to build a high performing team;
  • Building a team quickly with people who do not often work together, or who have never worked together; and
  • Tips on getting proposal teams, or any team, to work together to meet deadlines.
