Insights is back for its second seminar this year with a session on building a high-performing team.
Whether you’re the coach of a national high-performance sporting team or a founder scaling up your tech startup, finding the right people for your team and getting the most from them is crucial to your long-term growth and success.
Come along and hear from our team-building experts as they describe team-building tactics that have worked (and not worked) and get their tips on recruiting for success.
From backgrounds including AFL, small business and online recruitment, our speakers will discuss what is important in building the foundations of a healthy, vibrant culture which drives high performance, and discuss ‘tried and true’ best practices when hiring, developing and retaining talent.
