Team Building in Uncertain Times with Christopher Littlefield

Authentic Living with Roxanne and Christopher Littlefield

We’ve been dealing with the pandemic for 8 months now and it doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon.  Research has found that the number one thing people associate with being recognized is feeling valued.  While so many people continue to work remotely, leaders need to embrace the idea of making their teams feel appreciated in these uncertain times.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Christopher Littlefield who will talk about how to have the conversations that really matter and drive performance.

Chris is an International and TEDx Speaker specializing in Employee Appreciation, Recognition, and Workplace Culture, and the founder of Beyond Thank You. He has trained thousands of leaders, across six continents, on how to understand what their people want and need to be at their best. His clients include Accenture, Lebanese Postal Service, Boston Medical Center, Reserve Bank of Australia, Salesforce, the U.S. Army & Air Force, the United Nations, and more.
