SCNetwork Toronto Region Newsletter

In my brief time as President of SCNetwork, I have been humbled by the conviction and passion with which our many tireless volunteers work for our Network and its members. Each person I have met over the past year is genuinely committed to our organization’s growth and success. Our volunteers care for our members and our cause deeply. We must all truly appreciate the dedication and demanding work of our volunteers and staff whose harmonious team efforts bring you one stellar event after another every month. Without our volunteers, SCNetwork would not be as successful in such competing climes.

Our vastly attended events are our core offering. They continue to be cutting-edge in challenging the status quo of business, testing the trends and providing subject matter knowledge and leadership to help navigate the ever-evolving waters of the human side of business.

I’m excited to be a part of this outstanding organization at its time of growth and transition. What matters most is to keep our members engaged and up to date with the future vision and strategy for the organization which I will communicate more fully in February 2018. We’ll unveil the leadership team and new ways of adding value to our members at that time.

As we head into the holidays, let’s all take time to appreciate that ours is a community of practice that’s looking at organizational issues through a unique and different lens, and this has shaped our identity since SCNetwork was founded.

I wish you and your families warm regards over the upcoming holidays and encourage you to connect with me to make the SCNetwork experience even more rewarding.

Happy Holidays!

 

Suanne Nielsen
President, SCNetwork


SCNETWORK HOLIDAY EVENT: LEARNING IN THIN AIR: IS BUILDING A HIGH-PERFORMANCE TEAM LIKE CLIMBING MOUNT EVEREST?
The Albany Club
3:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Holiday social to follow immediately after the speaker presentation at 5:30 pm

"Teams don't become high performance because we don't clarify the basics", says Scott Kress.

Join us for our annual holiday event when for a presentation by an outstanding and celebrated Canadian mountaineer and adventurer, Scott Kress.

Scott has spent a lifetime working with high performance teams in thin air - quite literally. He understands that to climb the highest mountains in the world and return to tell the tale, the support of a fully engaged team is crucial. He'll share his secrets with us.

For Scott, the key ingredients of a world-class team are: leadership, focus, well-defined roles, shared resources, transparent communications, and united effort. Yet, despite knowledge of these truisms, corporate leaders often fail in their efforts to build highly performing teams. He’ll help us understand why this happens.

You will gain:

  • An understanding of why high-performance teams are difficult to build
  • Insights into the anatomy of highly engaged teams, and how you can build them
  • A clarification of team impact and why it's critical now more than ever

Books will be available to purchase after the speaking event & at the beginning of the holiday social ... bring cash!

NETWORKING TIP OF THE MONTH
by Colleen Clarke

How you say is more important than what you say

People decide within the first 7 seconds of meeting you whether they like you or not. They spend the rest of the conversation internally justifying their initial reaction. Body language accounts for 55% of the communicated message, so, using positive body language to make your first impression counts!
