SORT BY Relevancy
I can recall the very first time I was given an acronym for "TEAMWORK". During that time I was in basic training and my drill instructor interpreted T.E.A.M.WORK as Together Everyone Achieves More Work. What I didn't know was how deep this teamwork cliche' really goes. In fact it's so deep, that our Heavenly Father teaches us about it in His WORD.
"From whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love". (EPHESIANS 4:16)
The Masterpiece Marrage
Good team work requires working together to create a zone of safety in the relationship. Each person needs to feel they can trust the other to give feedback as well as trusting that the other will be open to examining their own behavior. Feeling like your spouse is "on your side" is important for every healthy marriage. You want to be confident that you are facing life's unique challenges together, and that if something especially difficult were to happen, your spouse would not abandon you. Offer support and encouragement to your significant other and receive the same from them by effectively building teamwork in your relationship. Like it or not, vulnerability is necessary in order to resolve differences. Spouses need to be open to examining their own behavior as well as taking in and absorbing their partner's complaints and feedback. However, this is unlikely if the emotional environment between you feels unsafe.
Today’s organizations require that workers be adaptable. Truly effective leaders know how to follow and how it feels to be a follower. Conversely, in order to be a productive team member, one must understand the difficulties of being a team leader. The daily “dance” between leaders and followers requires mutual understanding and a balance of give and take. As the great Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, said: “To lead, one must follow.” In this program, Yael Schy, creator of the Teamwork Tango® leadership training approach, shares her philosophy and methodology of using partner dancing principles and exercises for helping leaders and followers in organizations to work together more collaboratively and effectively.
Yael Schy is a leader in using expressive arts in organizational learning and development. She is principal of Dramatic Strides® Consulting, specializing in leadership development, communication skills, teambuilding and creative decision-making techniques that help people and organizations move forward together. Her unique Teamwork Tango® workshop, which teaches leadership and teambuilding skills through the metaphor of partner dancing, has been presented at numerous professional conferences and organizations in the U.S. and abroad for more than a decade.

Most have had a bad experience with "group projects". Particularly those who end up carrying the weight for others. However, on this show we will discuss the importance of teamwork and what it takes to make it work. I will be speaking with my co-author of "Life and Basketball: 7 Locker Room Lessons That Score Big In Life" and former collegiate basketball coach, Jackie DeVane and the current women's basketball coach for Cheyney University, Kyle Adams on the subject.
Jackie DeVane has been a head basketball coach on the collegiate level for 20 years, coaching at several schools, including Cheyney University and Monmouth University. She has a genuine concern for youth, and she takes great pride in helping young people work to become the best at whatever they choose to do in life.
Kyle Adams is the current women's basketball coach for Cheyney University and is really passionate about changing the lifes of young women through the game of basketball.
