I interview Jackie Barretta, author of the new book from AMACOM, "Primal Teams: Harnessing the Power of Emotions to Fuel Extraordinary Performance."
I ask Jackie:
What has changed in recent years that make team members’ emotions so critical to business success today?
How does your work differ from emotional intelligence, which is quite a familiar concept these days?
You write that negative emotions can be productive to a team or business. This seems counter-intuitive. Can you explain this and give an example?
Jackie Barretta specializes in defining the super-energy of elite teams and helping organizations create it in their own teams. She is also a Practice Director at Virtual Information Executives, where she provides technology consulting to higher education institutions.
Jackie has had several articles published in Information Week and CIO magazine. Her work with primal emotions in teams has won her widespread recognition and dozens of prestigious awards, including ComputerWorld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders, Information Week’s Innovator of the Year, and CIO Magazine’s Enterprise Value Award. She has served on the advisory boards of Hewlett Packard, Teradata, and the CIO Executive Council.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a master’s degree in organizational communication from Marylhurst University.

In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble, presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec will discuss a recent article from Natasha Bertrand, "The Pentagon paid 14 NFL teams $5.4 million to 'salute troops' Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-pentagon-pays-the-nfl-millions-to-honor-veterans-at-games-2015-5#ixzz3a4RPVZUc. Do you think that it is right for teams to receive money from the Pentagon? We hear about military budget cuts for our soldiers, but then millions of dollars are being paid to NFL teams. Shouldn't a team be patriotic and salute our soldiers for the service they provide our country? Listen in our call the show and give Evan and Troy your thoughts.

Last week we talked about why HR pros need to support each other and help each other thrive, and this week we’re going to talk about people, performance and building legendary teams.
In two months’ time, we’ll be cheering for our favorite players and teams during the baseball Fall Classic, these will be legendary teams that have been performance focused to drive winning outcomes.
In business, the same is true. Focusing on people and their performance is what drives better outcomes for business.
When your people win, they feel more capable and confident, translating into happy people. They are then more likely to be candid in communicating and advancing the business and driving innovation.
Businesses that excel focus on their employee-customers first. Allowing employees to reach their potential as they drive results for any and all shareholders, and of course, their paying customers.
Join TalentCulture #TChat Shows co-creators and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about people, performance and building legendary teams with this week’s guest: Patrick Antrim, an author, speaker, entrepreneur, leadership coach and CEO. Patrick is also a pro baseball mentor and a former New York Yankee, and his leadership & coaching firm, LegendaryTeams.com, is focused on winning in life and business.

Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented 2 workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked.
Kimberly says, "In spite of great advances in tools and business processes, many product development teams continue to fail for entirely predictable and avoidable reasons! I'm thrilled to be invited to share my insights and experience with effective product development teams with the Global Product Management Community!"
