Creating Great Team Performance

Take five famous and completely different characters from history, throw them into a project together to make -- of all things -- breakfast. What do you get? Either a perfect pancake or a perfect disaster.

THE PANCAKE PROJECT provides a unique scenario that illustrates how and why projects and business cycles can go so right or so wrong. Nils Westphal takes the ancient principles of the five elements from Eastern philosophy and applies them in the modern business world. His Five Elements Method delivers insights to help leaders improve both individual and team performance that align with people's needs. His method will help you to:

  • Understand essential roles in business and why that's key to creating successful teams,
  • Shift your mindset and view team dynamics and interactions in a completely new way,
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in your teams, and
  • Improve your team’s performance and satisfaction.

Take your leadership skills to the next level!
