    Organizational health is the last remaining advantage for your business.
    It's simple, reliable and virtually free. But, how do you get it?


    In this ever changing economic climate, it is increasingly more important to differentiate your business, so that it will not only survive...but thrive!  The Traverse Area Human Resource Association (TAHRA) is hosting a unique opportunity to hear a nationally recognized speaker, who will not only entertain you, but also give you critical tips on creating a successful business culture through simple, reliable and virtually free techniques!

    Pat Richie, three time Super Bowl champion, will be presenting principles from Pat Lecioni's book, “The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business”, and the national best-seller, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team’.  Pat Richie has worked with hundreds of executive teams.  He makes a strong connection with every client, illustrates Lencioni principles with distinctive strokes, and finds ways to help even difficult team members become part of a cohesive unit. He is known for helping organizations deal gracefully with very thorny issues and for challenging top teams to stay on top. His passion for organizational health is obvious and his commitment to his clients is clear.

    This event is designed for the business owner, managers and those who play a key role in the success of your organization.  TAHRA is offering a great buy 1 get 1 free offer through September 15th, so act now!

    “Our staff was first exposed to Patrick Lencioni’s ‘The Advantage’ during his presentation of the material at a recent Global Leadership Summit WCA conference.  To say the least, we were completely blown away.  His book, ‘The Advantage’, was selling at the conference bookstore following the session and completely sold out in a matter of minutes.  A majority of our leadership team immediately read the book in the weeks following the conference and we have since incorporated many of his suggestions into our team building and management practices.  So impressed were we with his message that the staff and leadership took the step to rewrite the Bay Pointe staff values to be more in line with Lencioni’s suggested practices and focus.” Tonya Jacobs, PHR, Connections Coordinator/Professional in Human Resources of Bay Pointe Community Church

    “It is wonderful when a training and team building event, such as the Pat Richie presentation, becomes available in Northern Michigan.  To have a world class speaker who captures the concepts of a book which has direct impact on your business, and is able to communicate these concepts effectively, gives local business a great development opportunity.  When TAHRA brought in Stephen M.R. Covey who spoke on his book, ‘The Speed of Trust’, AlcoTec senior staff not only attended the event but also did a group book review.  Capitalizing on that event and seeing the continued impact on the organization makes it easy to recommend taking the same opportunity with the Pat Richie presentation.” – Jennifer Ewing, SPHR, HR and EH&S Director, AlcoTec Wire Corporation
