Appreciating the Many Faces of Intelligence


None of us is as intelligent as the combination of
individuals in the partnership called “team.”

—Jim Bagnola


To use Teaming and Leadership to transform the traditional culture into a participative culture–from a “Do as you are told” to a “Do whatever it takes” culture.

    • Learning to be assertive (not saying yes when we mean no)
    • Really listening to others
    • Resolving conflicts utilizing communication intelligence
