Luis Wilson: Hi everyone. My name is Luis Wilson. I am a product manager here at TEAMES & CO, and I'm sitting down with our President and founder, Tracy Eames to introduce our brand new podcast. Tracy, could you tell us what inspired the podcast?
Tracy Eames: Of course, Luis. First though, let me say that I'm really looking forward to this podcast. TEAMES & CO was founded on the belief that, empowered teams deliver exceptional results. And now I realize that may sound obvious, but in reality many organizations are not focused on how their teams come together to deliver results. What we actually see oftentimes, is that leaders struggle with balancing the need to deliver strategy and business results on one hand, and developing their teams on the other. And the difficulty here really is because leaders are seeing these as two separate distinct goals, versus being tied in together. What we've noticed also in the podcast world is that this comes through in the same way. So there's a ton of podcasts about business strategy, and there's a lot of podcasts about employee engagement, but there's not a lot of content out there around, how do you bring your team together and how do you align them to your goals and your strategy to be achieving all of these things at the same time? So we're really excited to launch this podcast and hopefully fill that gap in the conversation.
Luis Wilson: Great. Thank you. I'm excited for it and really looking forward to it. Could you tell us about what listeners can expect on future episodes?
Tracy Eames: Well, I don't want to spoil too much, but we want to keep this fun and we want to really share relevant insights. So each week we'll cover a bunch of different topics from organizational strategy, organizational growth, customer experience, and many more, but again our goal is going to be on how do we bring all of these topics together, and understand how aligned and empowered teams are a key part of our shared success. As always, we want to make sure that we're including a lot of different perspectives, so our guests are going to be leaders and team members from all different types of teams from across business and education, community groups and athletic teams.
Luis Wilson: Got it. I'm looking forward to the range of conversations and not just passing on the insights that we've gotten from our engagements, but also the ones that our guests have from their point of view. So really looking forward to that. And speaking of our guests, could you tell us what this format of the podcast will be like?
Tracy Eames: Well, I say we mix it up. So some weeks we'll have more formal case studies, other weeks maybe we'll have more informal conversations; but ultimately we really want to share the stories of our guests and help our listeners hear about team perspectives from a lot of different angles.
Luis Wilson: Well, thank you, Tracy. I'm really looking forward to it.
Tracy Eames: Me too. I really can't wait for our first episode.
