BOOST TEAM PERFORMANCE, BUILD COLLABORATION, and ACCELERATE RESULTS
Building Team Skills Can Give Your Organization a Strategic Advantage
Successful organizations have clarity regarding their strategic direction (see “Strategy Development”). And they have in place the processes and technologies to stay on course – to actually implement their strategic plans (see “Strategy Execution”).
These two conditions are necessary for success – but strategy development and strategy execution are, by themselves, insufficient for success.
The “Achilles heel” of many organizations is the inability of their associates to work together effectively in teams.

Workshops That Impact People & Culture
There are many great reasons to select us as your external facilitators/trainers rather than running team building programs yourself – and that’s especially true when facilitating virtual training sessions.
Our experience goes well beyond Instructor Led Training. We have been consultants and trusted advisers to CEOs, business owners, and other senior leaders for years. We bring you more than just stand-up skills.
Facilitation, team development and DiSC/Five Behaviors are our core competencies. No matter what business you’re in, you know the importance of experience. When it comes to team development, especially using DiSC and Five Behaviors solutions, we have almost twenty years of experience designing and facilitating high-impact training sessions at all organizational levels.
We bring a fresh perspective. When you’re working in or leading an organization, it’s difficult to be truly objective. As “professional outsiders,” we can often recognize opportunities that might be hard for you and your team to see. And we can bring perspectives from the hundreds of other organizations we’ve worked with.
We will foster an atmosphere of neutral and unbiased facilitation. Bringing us in external facilitators/trainers provide participants with a sense of knowledge, authority and increased buy-in. As an added bonus, you’ll find that employees feel they are being valued, receiving training hours and insight from an expert.
We will ask the difficult questions. We use an expansive toolkit and facilitation strategies honed over many years working with organizations of all types. We can often be more direct in challenging situations than might be “politically correct” for in-house resources.
Meet Our Principals
We’ve been designing and facilitating workshops that improve individual, team, and leadership performance for almost twenty years. Our clients range from global brands such as Bayer, BDO, and Gucci to entrepreneurial startups looking for their first profits to national associations like the School Nutrition Association. The organizations we work with are very different…but the challenges they face and their need to improve organizational health is common ground.
Want to meet remotely? no problem!
We are experts at recreating the experience of meeting in-person VIRTUALLY.
We leverage advanced video technologies, coupled with virtual breakout rooms, whiteboards, interactive real-time polling, etc., to bring you a workshop experience that is as good as - better than? - meeting in-person. Don't waste time and money traveling.
Let us design and facilitate a virtual experience just for you and your team.

Our professional fee for a custom-designed people and culture workshop starts at $8,900 and varies depending on meeting timing, meeting duration, number of attendees, in-person versus virtual, tools and assessments to be included, etc. Our professional services fee includes all three phases outlined above, along with the costs of whatever learning assessments or instruments we may use during your workshop.
