Creating places where people WANT to work

About Us

Nancy Pettigrew Headshot
Founder, The Healthy Workplace, Ltd.,

Imagine going to work and you are looking forward to talking with your team today to share a great idea you have. This team is the best team you have ever worked on because you feel safe to ask for help, offer help and to admit mistakes because you know your team uses mistakes as an exploration into growth. Even difficult conversations are embraced because here conflict is healthy and leads to innovation and finding better solutions. You and your whole team are committed to team decisions because you feel heard and understood. No one gets thrown under the bus because you truly believe and live "together we are more".

Best of all, you hold one another accountable as an act of caring to help each member and the whole team succeed. No running to the boss to tell on a co-worker, which as we know creates a barrier of tension and distrust. With all of this happening for your team, you get things done and those "high five moments" feel good for the team as your diverse talents come together to create something special for your customers that keeps them coming back. It is a win-win for everyone - the employee, the organization and the customer.

If this is already your experience, great! The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® can make it better and help you continue to grow to the next level and and the next level of performance. If you are struggling and only wish this were true, then The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® program can help you get to the heart of what is happening with a guided path to finding your solutions.

This is not a training program where we just talk about theory. This is a real-world conversation where you and your team members master the art of "getting comfortable with the uncomfortable". This means getting past the "sticking points" in conversations and meetings so that you can discover the core of what matters and choose the team behaviors that will help each member and the whole team succeed.

There is a one-day program to help you discover the five essential behaviors of a truly cohesive team that may be just enough to kick-start your team into more dedication to genuine teamwork - the true competitive advantage of every organization.

If you discover you need more time to change your habits of thinking and behavior, that is available as well. Our goal is to create a safe space where your conversations become the catalyst for individual, team and organizational success and innovation..

Next Level Teamwork - Their Story

Solutions

  • Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® - One-day program

    This one-day event is ideal for discovering where your team's collaboration and communication habits and behaviors impact the cohesive nature of your team. Each member takes a survey regarding his or her usual experience on the team. How do you feel about the effectiveness of your meetings and accomplishing collective goals?

    You receive a Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® Report that reveals how your team really feels about your teamwork and then provides food for thought and activities to help you pinpoint the action steps that help grow your team's effectiveness.

    This day may be just enough to inspire real team dedication and/or it may be a catalyst for taking a deeper dive into how the team actually navigates work together so that each person feels welcome, valued, a sense of belonging and successful.

  • Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® - The In-depth Journey for Ongoing Impact

    If you know you and your team could be better, have tried other options and are feeling the time is NOW to overcome your obstacles to success, the more in-depth journey is for you. This is for intact teams who are ready to do the heavy lifting. In this case heavy lifting means people are ready to own their behaviors that impact team success and are willing to do something about it.

    This is where turnover comes to play. You can learn who you are in the team and make choices that promote individual, team and organizational success, or you can just quit and go somewhere else. The issue is that teamwork is part of every organization and each person takes his teamwork baggage with them to the next station. The key is to use your current team as an opportunity to understand your own contributions to teamwork and how together you can create better outcomes for all.

    We are happy to send you the case study of a nursing leadership team that chose the path of the "greater good."

  • Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® - Progress Report - Rubber Meets the Road

    If you are going to invest your resources in taking time away from daily operations to grow as a team,
    the ROI, or bottom line is not just talking about how we feel about our team now, but are we making real strides in our work? The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team® - Progress Report, can happen anytime in your team's journey to see how you are doing as a team in getting things done together.

    If is a complimentary resource, so your team can take it as often as it makes sense in taking a snapshot of your current beliefs and behaviors and how they impact achieving desired outcomes.

    Please see the attached sample. This is used to analyze progress, encourage and celebrate success and to continue to refine and grow your team's collaboration and communication.

  • Productive Conflict - Is there such a thing?

    Dynamic teams challenge each other with new ideas that can lead to innovation. Yet, these conversations can become uncomfortable as people share diverse points of view and begin to wonder how that "position" will impact his or her place on the team.

    The Productive Conflict Profiles is a practical, real-world guide that helps us look at our beliefs and behaviors when conversations become uncomfortable. It helps us see the range and impact of destructive to productive choices and creates an action plan for turning potential misunderstandings into a catalyst for mutual success and team innovation.

    Please see the sample profile. We are happy to talk with you regarding how you might use this in your organization to optimize teamwork.

  • Emotional Intelligence ~ Essential Skills for Living and Working in Community

    Our emotional intelligence (EI) impacts how we see ourselves, what we notice and think about others and what we do with that awareness that either creates resonance and harmony or dissonance and distrust. According to Goleman in Emotional Intelligence – Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, “EI is the response factor that determines how we use our intellectual capacities and talents. It encompasses the needs, drives, and values that guide all overt behavior.”

    Research shows our level of EI is the primary indicator of our success in our families, our work and our communities. It begins with an awareness of our own feelings, managing those feelings appropriately, noticing and having empathy for the feelings of others and then being a supportive, caring person in our relationships. Without those qualities, relationships are not sustainable.

    The good news - unlike IQ, EQ can be developed and improved with mindful attention and experiential learning. Please call us for more information
