Teamification with Aaron Schmookler

I will never forget being a member of the best team that I have ever been a part of, and then the pleasure of when I had built great teams myself. They were not only places of challenge but also great warmth and exceptional results.

My guest, Aaron Schmookler, also loves creating and helping his clients to build amazing teams. When I spoke to Aaron I really enjoyed his different take on teams and his perspectives on creating a clear cultural operating system and wanted to introduce his thinking to you. 

Aaron Schmookler works with business leaders who believe that their people are their greatest asset. He supports them to build structures, habits, and mindsets that support an enduring collaboration culture so their companies profit and attract top talent, and so their people find fulfilment and reasons to stay. He combines his experience from the world of outdoor leadership, theatre direction and business to help an exceptional client list.

Join us as we explore ‘teamification’ and helping you to become a catalyst for building great teams with exceptional performance and loyalty.

In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper.  They were invaluable.  Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence.  It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback.  This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:

“First time?!  Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk.  Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “

YAY!  Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me.  Sarah J Naylor
