In basketball, winning teams are nimble, well-rounded, and strategic. One strategy, popularized by coach Dean Smith at the University of North Carolina, is called the “four corners” offense. Four players cover the four corners of a half court while the fifth dribbles the ball in the middle. They pass between each other, stalling, until one has a safe, easy shot. In its heyday, this deliberate strategy helped teams maintain leads, especially near the end of the game.

In business, too, everyone must be in their spot on the court. Winning teams are made of people who have different strengths. Sometimes these differences seem to compete, but when people play in their respective corners and roles, their strengths complement each other. We need “competing” strengths around us to be optimally effective as change agents, leaders, and team members. The key to working well together, then, becomes trust.

Join us for an interactive session that explores the four business leadership corners and how trust fuels better teamwork and growth. We will:

  • Identify your critical strengths—plus the “competing” strengths from others you need to be optimally effective
  • Discover four methods for building trust within and across teams
  • Explore the roles of courage, humility, and authenticity in fostering change
  • Understand different ways one can build a culture of trust
