High Performing Culture That is Fact Based
Leaders are only as good as the teams they lead. Are your teams performing at the same level as you? Build high-performing teams that consistently win together.
Most teams in the workplace do not have the mindset of winning and losing together. Instead, team members tend to see themselves as individual players on committees that win or lose separately. As a result, individual players don’t challenge each other and teams lose synergy in turn.
Converting committees into true, high-performing teams, and understanding that there are different types of teams, is critical to organizational success. This requires all team members to be willing to have the difficult, yet necessary conversations. Just one team member not discussing vital information can mean the difference between success and failure.
Steven Gaffney’s honest communication expertise is the key to breaking barriers and rebooting teams; whether they are old, new, or challenged. Team members who believe they are able to be open and honest are more willing to speak up and have those difficult conversations. They know the success of their team equates to individual success and are willing to do what it takes to achieve it.
Steven’s honest communication techniques teach you how to:
- Encourage team members to discuss difficult questions and challenges.
- Convert committees (win or lose separately) into high-performing teams (win or lose together).
- Recognize and implement the 3 major types of teams.
- Implement the 7 guidelines to high-performing teams.

The Best Get Gaffney, Testimonials:
Steven came to me highly recommended from other areas in my organization when I first took over a failing business unit. I had great people on my leadership team, but they needed cohesion and alignment and were all pulling in different directions. From his very first session with us, Steven walked into a room of people glaring at him and won them over. We noticed immediate results- within 10 days, the hostility was removed from their relationships and some of the most difficult players were speaking to each other using Steven’s terms. People understood the value of this extremely fast, and the work took hold in the organization.

Just a note to let you know that [Steven Gaffney’s] communications seminar I took back in October 2001… is still the most practical, powerful, and immediately useful training course I have ever taken. I have used the techniques to reach employees, bosses, and my kids, and review it regularly to help me remember how to listen and communicate effectively.

Steven has truly taken the time to understand our company and has tailored his knowledge and support to actually fit our specific needs and direction. We have been through several changes and re-organizations and, universally, his sessions have contributed positively to our growth. As a result of his sessions, I’ve clearly seen improved interactions between individual employees. He really has the ability to bring out insights and instill focus on whatever ongoing issues our teams are facing, as well as any new opportunities that will help the business to succeed. Steven has been our go-to speaker and trainer; we’ve continued to use him over anyone else because we like the results he produces.
