Beginning with a clear, consensus team vision, clear success metrics, an understanding of the role of the team and it’s rules of engagement, over a series of 6-7 dedicated meetings (typically off site), we build the trust, the team relationships, and the team norms and processes for high functioning leadership teams to get their organizations to the next level of success.
While not limited to it, we model our approach after Patrick Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team, focusing on one dysfunction per off site, and building upon each previous off site(s), with the goal being the daily application of the key principles and practices of the model on the job. It’s this focus on daily application (walking the talk) that makes our approach both unique and highly productive. We also coach individual members along the way (to be both good team mates as well as domain leaders of their own subunits), build peer coaching (radical candor) relationships as we go, as well as individual and collective leadership competencies to effectively lead the business, the organizational units, and the middle management company-wide.

Often called a customized individual seminar, we bring all our experiences and resources to bear on helping you achieve your potential.
