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.
