  • “Thanks, Jill, you are a difference maker for us.”

    Mark Fillman, Chief Operating OfficerCoastal Flow Measurement Companies
  • "I've been through a lot of training programs over the years but this program was one of the best I've attended. I learned something about myself (not all of it positive either), but I also learned that there's a path to improvement if I choose to follow it."

Solutions

  • Strategic Planning

    In an engaging collaborative process, executive teams determine 5 key organizational initiatives that align with the company's vision, values and mission. Throughout the execution of these five key strategic initiatives, the team explores, discusses, and resolves five behaviors of cohesive teams (trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results) to achieve greater effectiveness and productivity.

  • Team Projects

    Whether it's a permanent, intact team or a short-term project team, following a model to improve team performance and relationships yields more effective results than just winging it and hoping for the best!
    Using a proven model of success based on Patrick Lencioni's best-selling book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this team development program has a simple goal—to improve team effectiveness and productivity through the understanding and application of The Five Behaviors™: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results.

  • Leading Change

    70% of change initiatives fail. Reverse the trend and start where it's smart! Focus the change leadership team's efforts on building their own productive, high functioning team to serve as the foundation and model for the rest of the organization to follow throughout the change process and beyond. When the leadership team demonstrates trust at the top, engages in productive conflict around ideas, commits to decisions, holds each other accountable for individual actions, and focuses on achieving results for the collective good of the organization, you're on the road to success: sustaining changes in the organization that achieve desired results and empowers teams for continued success.
