Episode 24 – Mark Kenny on Eliminating Territorial Thinking and Unleashing the Power of Teams

I so enjoyed this conversation with my fellow Table Group Consultant and Practitioner Alliance colleague, Mark Kenny. He is a successful business owner, keynote speaker, new author and a wonderfully authentic dude. We talk about the importance of being able to truly operate as a team - both within and outside of organizations. Mark discusses why this matters now more than ever, what gets in our way, and some key things we can do to start to address the gaps between silos and get out of our own territorial, self-protective ways to collaborate with others, serve a common purpose, and have a greater impact. I think you’ll walk away with some wonderful insights and tangible actions you can take right now to show up as a leader and unleash the power of teams.
