Town Hall: Challenges and Solutions in Cross-Team Collaboration

Add to calendar

Working with other teams can be tough. There are different goals, different incentives, and different reporting structures. You might be trying to save time, they might be interested in saving money, and another team is looking to optimize resources. One department manager might be open to working with others but another is too busy to deal with “other people’s problems right now.” Whatever the challenge, team-to-team, person-to-person, employee-to-manager, manager-to-employee, etc., come talk to Jaimee Newberry about it! Her strength with big companies/employees/leaders/teams tends to be the human interaction and communications side of things. Soft skills! She coaches companies on creating more emotionally engaging products THROUGH employee engagement, communication, and well-being. And she has put her preaching to practice with her own company, Picture This Clothing. Join Jaimee and your peers to discuss challenges and solutions with cross-team collaboration.
