Team Building & Development
"Bringing together disparate personalities to form a team is like a jigsaw puzzle...We want to make sure our players fit together properly and complement each other...If personalities work against each other, as a team, you'll find yourself spinning your wheels." - Pat Summit - University of Tennessee Women's Basketball Coach
Developing and maintaining good team chemistry is one of the most challenging obstacles leaders face. When team chemistry and conflict disrupt team performance, many leaders find themselves spinning their wheels, unsure of what to do.
Team building workshops help team members and leaders improve personal self-awareness, become more aware of and understand other team members, build stronger relationships with teammates, and improve team communication, commitment, and accountability.
Team Building Workshops
Different teams have different issues and challenges. That's why our team building workshops are generally customized based on needs and desired outcomes. We work with managers and leaders to determine desired outcomes, then develop methods to achieve those outcomes.
Most workshops range from a 1/2-day to 1-day and are held in-person, although video conferencing may also be an option.
Often what leaders and managers believe is leading to poor team performance or satisfaction is only part of the story. We use a variety of assessments and methods to evaluate current team functioning, diagnose team problems, and design workshops that help get everyone on the same page and moving toward higher performance.
