Creating Teams- Foundation of a Successful Organization with Patrick Touhey Work Pod | Work 2.0 & Future Of Work Upgrades

    • Business

Before an organization can succeed, it must have a team. This team is the foundation upon which success will be built. Teams are not just a collection of people. They are the combination of skills and personalities that come together for a common cause. Join this conversation with Patrick Touhey as we talk about why, as a leader, you need to have effective work teams which are collaborative, supportive, and positive in your organization.

Patrick Touhey is president at Elite Performance Too – E, LLC. He was a high school basketball head coach for both boys’ and girls’ teams and a college assistant coach.
When his brother, Hall of Fame basketball coach Kevin Touhey, was dying from lung cancer, Patrick promised him he’d continue his passionate work of athletic coaching. With Elite Performance Too-E, Patrick mentors both coaches and players to tap into their hearts and passions, pursue the spirit of team sports, and become the best version of themselves.

Elite Performance Too-E emphasizes intrinsic elements rather than extrinsic metrics that sports often prioritize, such as work hours, scholarships, and individual statistics. By teaching the value of service, leadership, and team connection, Patrick and Elite Performance Too-E help athletes overcome the common selfish and self-absorbed mindset and use the athletic experience to develop as people and potential leaders. Patrick has played an integral part in coaching multiple teams to win state championships and reach their highest potential.
