Hank Fortener: How to Build Teams That Won’t Let Each Other Fail

At AWE, we’re always on the lookout for new and different voices that present engagement topics in unique ways. We value speakers with unconventional takes on traditional HR topics, who deliver actionable tips, and who can provide you with new tools and information to create your own Awesome Office.

Hank Fortener certainly fits that description.

As the founder of AdoptTogether.org and World Adoption Day, Hank has dedicated much of his life to helping young people who are (in his words) “without a tribe” feel a sense of family and belonging.

Through his organizations, Hank has helped more than 1,400 families raise 6 million dollars towards adoption expenses to help bring their children home.

Luckily for us, Hank has applied much of his learning around human behavior and belonging to the business world, and is a sought after speaker and expert in employee engagement. He joined us at our recent Awesome Office event launch party.

We got so much positive feedback about Hank’s presentation that we knew we had to share it with all of you. Watch the video above to learn about his unconventional notion of accountability, and his tips about building teams that won’t let each other fail.
