Working with Teams
I engage with teams in multiple ways, depending on the goals of the group. Workshops contain pre-determined content on a specific topic and the focus is on educating participants. Teamwork Sessions can be used with teams of any kind: newly formed, well established, executive or short-term/project teams. These sessions are customized based on the specific needs ofthe team.
These are a few of my “off the shelf” workshops. Looking for something a bit different? Contact me and let’s customize a development event.

Build better relationships by building self-and-other-awareness.
According to a recent Gallup poll 70% of respondents report being part of a dysfunctional team. Highly cohesive teams are seriously committed, work harder, are more satisfied by their work, and experience less intra-team conflict. Those are just a few reasons why great teams are fundamental to successful organizations.
Organizations are reshaping to cater to a dynamic and demanding marketplace – and that means reinventing themselves to operate as networks of teams to keep pace with the challenges of a fluid, unpredictable world. That’s why high impact teams are non-negotiable for successful organizations.
Beginning with self-and-other-awareness, we help people understand why they choose to work the way they do, why others may make different choices, and what that might mean for the overall effectiveness of the team. By applying this understanding, we help people to build better relationships with their closest colleagues at work. Where relationships improve, so do many things fundamental to team success, including productivity, communication, clarity of role and purpose, and overall team effectiveness.
