Chamber University: High Performance Teams

Published Thursday, June 10, 2021

Jeremy Yancey, Lead Pastor at Timber Creek Church, will be the featured speaker at the upcoming Chamber University, hosted by the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce, on Tuesday, June 15, 2021. The seminar titled “High Performance Teams” will begin at 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Timber Creek Coffee Company, 2021 S. John Redditt Dr., Lufkin.

It's not about bigger budgets, better buildings, or sexier vision statements, a highly effective, healthy, cohesive team gives any organization the leading edge over the competition, every time.

The fast-paced intensive workshop will feature four courses to help local businesses and nonprofits build winning teams, create effective communication, and become a high performing company. 

Here is a look at the breakdown of the sessions for the Chamber University.  

Session 1: Spike the Kool-aid:
Proven steps for creating clarity and curating a winning team. 

Session 2: Nice Teeth, You're Hired.
Why Gut-feel hiring is a no-no.
(and a process for identifying the right people for the right seats)

Session 3: Further Faster:
90-day Rhythms for "Attractive" Accountability and “grow or go“ conversations 

Lunch Session: A Team Meeting about Team Meetings:
Leading enjoyable meetings that keep the needle moving.
(Plus, time for peer to peer learning and Q&A)

Yancey’s goal is to become an influencer of influencers. He has spent years developing a leadership training curriculum and network to achieve that personal goal and to help create change at a higher level for Lufkin/Angelina County.

The cost to attend the Chamber University is $20 for Chamber Investors and $30 for Non-Chamber Investors. RSVP for the lunch session is required. To reserve a seat at the workshop, email
