ASID and experts from Vivo Team Development presented this series of live webinars designed to enhance your leadership skills in the areas of communication, productivity, collaboration, accountability, and performance. Learn to hone your communication skills and listen more effectively, deliver inspiring feedback to improve performance, and create a culture of accountability for your team.


Webinar Line-up 


EXP Speaker Series 1: Effective Listening to Increase Team Productivity and Collaboration  

Learn the importance of listening in effective team productivity and collaboration. Communication is critical to any relationship and the most fundamental of all the soft skills. It is the most important of the six key indicators of highly functioning teams. Learn how to be a more effective listener and enhance your leadership skills in the areas of communication, productivity, collaboration, accountability, and performance. 1 IDCEC-approved CEU.


EXP Speaker Series 2: Feedback/Feedforward: Why Feedback Alone Doesn’t Work & What To Do About It   

Discover the power of the three “F” words to inspire and engage people to improve their performance: Feedback, feedforward and follow-up. Feedback alone doesn’t work. Research tells us that about one-third of the time feedback leads to momentary performance improvement; one-third of the time it results in nothing; and in one-third of cases, leads to worsening performance. Learn more effective strategies for giving and receiving feedback, and enhance your leadership skills in the areas of communication, productivity, collaboration, accountability, and performance. 1 IDCEC-approved CEU.


EXP Speaker Series 3: Effective Accountability: The Science of Human Performance 

Explore how to motivate people so they become more accountable and do what they say they will do when they say they will do it. Avoiding conflict and creating a culture where being liked is more important than being respected can lead to lack of accountability in a team. As a result, staff produce low-quality work, miss deadlines, and engage in passive-aggressive conflict, causing team productivity to plummet. Learn how to create a culture of accountability in your organization, and enhance your leadership skills in the areas of communication, productivity, collaboration, accountability, and performance. 1 IDCEC-approved CEU.


Access period for webinar recordings: One year from your registration date.

    Dr. Jim Sellner, Ph.D., DIPC.

    Executive Vice President, People Analytics & Talent Activation, VIVO Team Development

    With over 40 years experience working with and training over 3,000 entrepreneurs and business leaders, Jim’s sole purpose is to Bring Out the Genius in People. Jim is the author of more than 1,600 articles and three amazing books including “Leadership for Einstein’s: Bringing Out the Genius in People While Becoming Great Ourselves.”

    Jim was originally trained and worked as a city planner, and was on faculty at the University of British Columbia. Then he went on to obtain an MA and PhD in psychology.

    Dr. Jim was in private practice for 21 years before starting a business that grew to $1.2M. Early in life, Jim realized that relationships are everything, and hold endless possibilities – to be good, bad, ugly or beautiful. He also realized that the main reason relationships sour, whether in business, friendship or love, is incompetence. Time and time again, Jim has seen first hand what you get when you put a group of interpersonally incompetent people on a team and let them loose: an expensive mess. Jim cleans up messes (hopefully before they happen) by building Vivo Team learning content and focusing on team and individual applications that help teams become more interpersonally effective.
