Anne Collier's Most Requested Topics:
Harness Your Team Members' Cognitive Diversity
Your team is great. Its members are smart, hardworking, and experts in their field. But somehow there are still miscommunications, lost opportunities, and frustrations. Team members need to understand and learn to harness each other’s strengths via proven assessment tools that detail differences in perception, analysis of information, or problem-solving style. Anne’s talk will help you transform annoyance into appreciation, reduce stress, and increase results.
Actionable Approaches to People Problems
Are you a manager who wants to step into leadership? Whether you’re on a leadership team or vertical team, you need to function together to achieve organizational goals. But how? There are so many interpersonal and other challenges that seem to interfere with achieving the team’s goals.

How do you do it all while maintaining and improving team effectiveness?
Regardless of which of these people problems your team is facing, there are actionable approaches for getting what you and the team needs, while building trust and a greater sense of team. In this session, you will learn how to apply the Arudia Win-Win Conversation and the Arudia Coaching Skills so that people problems morph into opportunities for harnessing good teamwork, better solutions, and best thinking.
