The Essentials of TRM

The stakes have never been higher. Complex problems demanding innovative solutions requires the determination and motivation of the best minds. Yet, too often the reality on a team is low energy and engagement. A few teams succeed in overcoming that reality and deliver exceptional performance. Many don’t.

Based on the book Team Relationship Management: The Art of Crafting Extraordinary Teams, The Essentials of TRM outlines ideas and actions that come from first-hand experience of what does and doesn’t work on the front lines, along with research insights from the best minds in the team leadership field.

Team Relationship Management is the key to dramatically reducing business and execution risk and significantly improving team effectiveness and performance. Crafting Extraordinary Teams: The Essentials of TRM is ideal for team development or ‘lunch and learn’ sessions and can be presented in-person or via webinar.

Want Extraordinary? Get Relationships.

The 20th century was dominated by a ‘hierarchy and heroes’ narrative of bosses who were portrayed as transforming their organizations through the command and control of the legions beneath them. Today’s organizations must reshape themselves around teams and networks of teams and transform people’s mindsets from leadership being a person, to leadership as a collaborative, shared process. The chemistry of exceptional teams is a product of single-minded preparation and steadfast determination to excel. These teams focus on developing the few habits that lead to excellence:

  • Laying a foundation of enduring trust
  • Encouraging behaviors that inspire
  • Coaching that keeps relationships strong

Based on the book Team Relationship Management: The Art of Crafting Extraordinary Teams, Want Extraordinary? Get Relationships emphasizes that extraordinary teams combine adaptability, resilience, and a relentless will to win with collective selflessness. Because, in the 21st century, a team leader’s success depends less on skills or brilliance and more on humility and the ability to inspire the best in people.

Want Extraordinary? Get Relationships. is an ideal keynote for leadership and people development focused conferences and kicking-off leadership development programs.

Inspiring Motivation @ Work

Would you hire an attorney or a surgeon without doing at least some homework on the person’s background and qualifications? Most people respond with a resounding “NO!”. Yet, when it comes to taking advice on how to motivate, energize, and engage people within an organization few leaders are equally diligent. Most of the ‘expert’ opinions either come from academics with little to no field experience leading teams, or ex-corporate managers and consultants who lack an in-depth understanding of behavioral science.

Inspiring Motivation @ Work: Beyond Buzz-Words and Pop-Psychology combines what behavioral science knows with decades of experience leading and developing teams in the field. Dr. Hurley’s talk reflects an understanding of the ‘changing tires on a moving car’ of a modern team leader’s day-to-day reality, and provides a straightforward, behavioral science-based answer to the question, “How do I motivate each person on my team?”

Inspiring Motivation @ Work: Beyond Buzzwords and Pop-Psychology is designed for team leaders and their teams. The approach and practices outlined are extremely effective whether your team is local or global, virtual, and cross-cultural.
