About Us

Amanda Boardwine Headshot

Hi, I'm Amanda Boardwine. I am the President of Steward Development Group--a consulting business with the vision of guiding leaders toward self awareness, both of themselves and their team. Leaders who know their strengths and weaknesses automatically add value to an organization and are better equipped to build a team around them than one who is not self-aware. The self-aware leader better understands what tasks he or she handles most effectively and which ones the leader should delegate to team members.

To accomplish this, I use "The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team" (of which I am an Authorized Partner) as a tool to guide leaders toward a more clear goal, as well as aiding them to direct their team toward the accomplishment of this vision. We will work through your strengths and weakness, along with those of your group, to create a more cohesive and efficient team.

It would be my honor to work with you on this journey of building a stronger, more effective team! Contact me to get started!

Solutions

  • Resolving Team Conflict

    ENGAGING IN HEALTHY CONFLICT

    Conflict is naturally uncomfortable, but productive conflict focused on concepts and ideas is essential for any great team to grow. When teams have a foundation of vulnerability-based trust, conflict simply becomes an attempt to find the best possible solution in the shortest period of time.

  • What is Making My Team Dysfunctional?

    Dysfunction #1: Absence of Trust
    The fear of being vulnerable with team members prevents the building of trust within the team.

    Dysfunction #2: Fear of Conflict
    The desire to preserve artificial harmony stifles the occurrence of productive ideological conflict.

    Dysfunction #3: Lack of Commitment
    The lack of clarity or buy-in prevents team members from making decisions they will stick to.

    Dysfunction #4: Avoidance of Accountability
    The need to avoid interpersonal discomfort prevents team members from holding one another accountable.

    Dysfunction #5: Inattention to Results
    The pursuit of individual goals and personal status erodes the focus on collective success.

  • Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, Behavioral Styles-Based

    The program helps teams understand how they score on the key components of The Five Behaviors model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability, and Results. Individual team members will learn about their own personality style and the styles of their team members— based on the Everything DiSC® model—and how their style contributes to the team’s overall success.
