    Session Description and Speaker Bio


    Speaker: Jane Boucher, MBC, CSP; Jane Boucher

    Topic: How to Build a Winning Team in an Age of Entitlement


    Learning Objectives:

    1. Empower team members to grow and stay energized.
    2. Examine your own leadership style and how it impacts others.
    3. Know how to resolve conflict and be committed to a common goal and to each other.
    4. Develop positive attitudes in teams
    5. Keep the team focused, while building members’ confidence, commitment, and trust in themselves and in each other.

    Session Description:

    Effective teamwork "pays its own way" with greater organizational productivity and profits. A team of people working cooperatively can produce more than the sum of the individual members working alone.  One good idea stimulates another, but only if the team members are working together and talking regularly. 

    Teamwork is inhibited in today’s high-stress business environments, especially when entitlement behaviors are present. In this fascinating yet pragmatic course, Jane Boucher shows how to integrate tried-and-true teamwork principles with the realities of today’s workplace. It’s not easy, but it can be done.  Jane will teach you how to motivate, steer, and get great results with teams in challenging work environments.

    Session Bio:
    Jane received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees from The Ohio State University. She has done doctoral work at the University of South Florida and has been an adjunct professor at the University of Dayton, Wright State University, Sinclair Community College and Miami University Ohio. She also served as the Associate Director of the Antioch University McGregor Organizational Institute. She is currently an affiliate of the Fowler School of Business & Executive Coaching.

    The author of seven books, she uses the podium and her expertise to promote personal and professional excellence. Her best seller, How to Love the Job You Hate, has been profiled in Forbes, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, USA Today, The National Enquirer, Guideposts, SELF Magazine and on CNBC, CBN and CNN.

    Jane is a recognized authority on workplace issues. She is also a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist appearing in business journals throughout the country. Jane worked with at-risk youth before beginning her professional speaking career. A Fortune 500 Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), Master Business Coach (MBC), corporate trainer and consultant, she has worked with organizations such as Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), the United States Senate, Energy Transfer, American Association of Healthcare Administrative Management (AAHAM), Western CPE, Antioch University Midwest, Toyota, Prudential of Europe, Department of the Navy, United States Air Force, FDIC and the International Association of Hispanic Meeting Professionals (IAHMP).

    She has shared the platform with such notables as Senator Orin Hatch, Bernard Siegel, M.D., former Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn, Coach John Wooden, Elizabeth Edwards, “Life is Good” founders Bert and John Jacobs, and Michael Jackson's attorney Tom Mesereau.

    Jane is one of the most dynamic women on the speaking circuit today. She was awarded the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation by the National Speakers Association. Fewer than 8% of all professional speakers hold this distinction. She has also earned the Master Business Coach (MBC) credential from the Fowler School of Business & Executive Coaching.
