Special emphasis will be on developing a powerful onboarding experience for new team members and ways to drive personal accountability and team cohesiveness throughout your team. 

Learning topics include: 
•    Re-imagining the onboarding experience. 
•    Tips to become the teammate that others want to have. 
•    Modeling peer accountability
