Solutions

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, Personality-based

    Using either Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory or Disc individuals learn how to apply these concepts as tools to enable them to perform more effectively as team members.
    Personality Type provides a foundation from which to look at trust, commitment, accountability, and results. Each team member examines their unique contribution to the team and how to use that contribution to work more effectively.

  • What's Making Your Team Dysfunctional?

    Team members and teams examine elements of effective team and those things that cause a team not to work well together. Time spent in group exercises and when appropriate in follow-up coaching and team exercises, enable teams to systematically look at and understand how they can more appropriately work together. Conflict resolution tools are provided to assist the learner in understanding how they can more effectively manage themselves and situations which may be difficult

  • Team are the Core to Great Leadership. What are your teams saying about you as a Leader?

    Teams don't function in isolation from management and leaders. The Emotional and Cultural Leadership Development of the Leader set the tone and the functionality of teams. Innovation, creativity, and extraordinary results require that teams be understood in the context of Leadership.l This workshop and coaching provides Leadership groups the opportunity o critically assess and analyze their leadership style and culture's impact upon teams that report to them.
