Teamwork is easy to dismiss as a groan-worthy buzzword, but when you’re racing across the brutal North Pacific, thousands of miles from land, teamwork is all you’ve got. Dysfunctional team dynamics will strangle communication, putting your goals and your team in jeopardy. In this session, you’ll discover the most important lessons learned on a punishing, 6000-mile race across the ocean: how to put the team before the individual, how to trust and be trusted by your teammates, and how maneuvering through a 100mph squall is a lot like maneuvering through a project meeting.

Excellent talk and message.
Fascinating and informative
Slides available here!
Sailing as a metaphor for teamwork. Well done!
Loved the talk!
great talk. thank you for posting the slides too.
Stephanie used her experiences gained during an oceanic sailing expedition to discuss key issues in identifying obstacles to team project success. Her talk was among the highlights of the conference despite having no "technical" content as most of the conference presentations.
Fascinating story about sailing across the Pacific Ocean, and great summary of the "5 Dysfunctions of a team" book. I had taken a brief course on that course before, and still learned new tips from Stephanie -- thank you!
Excellent story from which we could draw clear lines to our everyday team interactions.
Fantastic story, very funny and entertaining but also inspiring without being preachy.
The slides with their delightful self-deprecating humor ensure complete credibility for the message. It's a brilliant concept to begin with, using the adventure of a lifetime to introduce and teach team-building skills.
I hope you keep the "Easter egg" in the slide deck. It was perfect, being in the section about accountability (i.e., mistakes) immediately after reefing and handing the sails.
Great talk! Even high-pressure environments can be a conducive place to build a team up.
Great talk and message around teams and how to be successful.
