How to Build High-Performing Teams: Olympic Lessons from Team Canada

Thursday, May 23, 2024
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Discover practical insights on trust, communication and well-being from Canadian Olympians.

What does it take to create an effective team — one that can think big, plan ahead and handle critical moments with ease? There is no better place to look for practical lessons than the world’s biggest sporting event: the Olympic Games. 

Whether on the track or behind the scenes, the Olympics are a monumental event to bring to life. Teamwork is crucial for success. 

So what can we learn from the staff at the Canadian Olympic Committee who put together everything needed to send Team Canada athletes to an Olympic Games? What steps do they take that the rest of us can learn from and take back to our teams and projects at work? 

As Team Canada prepares for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympic Games, now is the perfect time to find out. 

On Thursday, May 23 at 1 p.m. (ET), join Smith Business Insight for this free 60-minute webinar on teamwork strategies and lessons developed by “the team behind the team” to ensure Canadian athletes are set up for high performance at the Games. Featuring Olympians and current Canadian Olympic Committee employees Erica Wiebe and Marie-Andrée Lessard, you will find out what it takes to get Team Canada to the Olympic Games — and working together to reach the podium.
