Team Building

Team Building

When individuals can show up together and work from their strengths, everybody thrives - that's why team building is crucial to organizations achieving their potential. We facilitate teams to articulate their unique abilities and unpack challenges, unlocking their collective capabilities.

Team Building is:

Unlocking potential. The most powerful thing about teams is their potential to be greater than the sum of their parts. Diving into collective strengths, aspirational goals and individual needs has the power to transform teams into something so much greater than a group of individually talented people.

Relational. Collectivity comes from authenticity. Team building engages us individually and collectively to communicate more deeply, receive feedback more openly and define challenges more explicitly. Relationships are the work.

Forward focused. Teamwork is about the here and now, but it also needs to be future fit. We work with teams to set our eyes collectively towards a vision, so we can strategically prepare your organization for the future. Engaging with stakeholders and building resiliency is central for productive teams.

Team Building looks like:

Customized work plans. Team building is a convergence of coaching, consulting and facilitation in groups. We work with your team to develop a plan based on your unique challenges and needs within your organization.

Understanding who we are. Using Typecoach and other tools, we aim to provide a deeper understanding of individual strengths and challenges to develop communication and accountability systems that work for your team.

Feedback tools. Teams need feedback from each other, but also from stakeholders. Using 360 feedback systems and other tools, we build feedback into the fabric of your team. Having input from stakeholders helps to align and clarify strategic narratives for your team, your organization and your community at large.

Collective learning. A cultureĀ of curiosity fuels healthy teamwork. By learning together, we can always be holding ourselves to a higher standard of what is possible. By listening deeply and asking questions, we can advance meaningful communication within teams. We are certified in team coaching to help with this work.

Investing in your team is strategic. Organizations need to leverage their individual talent into collective strength in service of their strategic aims. People are the most effective tools that an organization holds - investing in them changes everything.
