Then we will work with your team to overcome these dysfunctions using tools, exercises, and real-world examples. Your team will develop a team building road map and timeline to reach your organizational goals and objectives.
“Striving to create a functional, cohesive team is one of the few remaining competitive advantages available to any organization looking for a powerful point of differentiation. — Patrick Lencioni

Teambuilding with Personality
We naively assume any group can automatically be a team. However, one of the biggest reasons teams misfire is that personality differences are ignored. By understanding your team’s personality types, you greatly improve its chances for success. By using a personality assessment such as Personality Dimensions, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator or DISC, team members gain a better understanding of their strengths, values and characteristics and those of their team mates. This fun, highly interactive workshop will assist teams to reduce conflict, increase collaboration and increase productivity.
