Building and Growing Powerful Teams

Team Development

Teams are the heartbeat of organizations in the modern workplace. Ensure your teams have what they need to drive success.

The Problem

Teams are made up of individuals.  And individuals do not all think, act, or make decision alike. That is both a good thing and a challenging thing. Team members need to understand their preferences and the preferences of their teammates in order to function in an optimal way. Once individual team members solve this puzzle, the teams they are on will become nearly unstoppable.

What Makes a “Team” a Team?

A team is a group of individuals who are united in purpose toward a common goal. Some teams are temporary and support short-term initiatives. While other teams are formed to provide the foundation for operational and strategic success. No matter what caused a team to be formed, all teams need to find ways to bring diverse abilities and perspective together to accomplish something beyond the reach of the individual members.

How We Can Help

Becoming an effective team starts before the team is even formed. Defining the purpose of the team, choosing the right people for the team, and communicating about the team are all important preliminary steps to forming an effective team. However, sometimes those steps get missed and you are forced to play catch-up. Whether you have the opportunity to think strategically about how a team is formed or you are helping formed team build a stronger bond, there are many ways we can help.

 Forming Team Foundation

An effective team is one built on trust. And trust is not automatic. It takes effort and is earned over time. Our team-focused training and tools will help ensure your new team gets started off well. If you are working with an established team, these tools can also help provide a refresher on how to build and sustain trusting relationships.

Developing Awareness

A powerful way to help ensure team success is to develop the self-awareness of each individual team member. This will ensure they understand what is important to them and how they can contribute their unique skills and abilities. We have multiple assessment tools that can help you with this step and also provide the foundation needed to understand others’ preferences as well.

Increasing Team Communication

One of the most important tools any team has is the ability to communicate well. When communication is working, the team is working. When communication breaks down, the team breaks down. Our team-focused training experiences will help increase your team’s ability to communicate, listen, and understand each other.

Facilitating Innovation & Problem Solving

When challenges need addressed through innovative problem-solving, time is usually in short supply. The difference between teams who can manage this challenge well and those that struggle is training and tools focused on creativity and innovation. Our Decision-Making and Innovation training course will help you and your teams find the right balance and our team-focused trainings will help identify natural team strengths for this type of work.


Sometimes what your team needs more than anything is the opportunity unplug and connect to build relationships. This can provide a strong foundation for effective teamwork in the future. Our team-focused experiences will give you the opportunity to “step away” from the day-to-day so you can fast-track deeper relationships. This can be especially important for newly formed teams, but existing teams can also benefit.
