Team Building

With the lightning speed of change in business today, there is a greater need than ever for corporate team building. Companies have to respond quickly to new market demands, corporate reorganizations, mergers, downsizing and more. This often means bringing together people from different corporate cultures and perspectives – all with differing skills, working styles and points of view.

Our Team Building programs help workgroups and organizations – new or established – build constructive synergy and work together with a shared sense of purpose. We create teams that recognize and respect the talents and contributions of each member, while working collaboratively toward a common goal. These are teams in which the whole is truly more than the sum of its parts.

In our Team Building programs, we work with teams to build trust, achieve “buy in” from all members, clarify roles and goals, negotiate change, and attain a high level of performance and productivity. We do this through:

  • Simulations of team issues, including mock enterprises and projects.
  • Adventure learning exercises, ranging from indoor, experiential to more physically challenging activities.
  • Events and celebrations that help teams coordinate their efforts toward a common goal or integrate new members and responsibilities.

Because new business teams often come about as the result of organizational change, a key part of team building is helping people deal with that change and adjust to new colleagues, practices, procedures and cultures. This includes:

  • Working cooperatively with others, whether colleagues, superiors, business partners, customers, prospects, or vendors.
  • Becoming more flexible in moving beyond old skills, structures, procedures and measures of success, and adjust to new ones.
  • Acknowledging that organizational change may not be a one-time event but an ongoing phenomenon.
  • Learning to take risks, venturing into new, unfamiliar endeavors and not “playing it too safe.”

We customize our training programs in team building and change management for each organization and professional level – management, administrative or support staff. For example, we have worked with one organization on a long-term basis, providing management and leadership skills development as well as serving as a “change facilitator.”

Our one-day and three-day programs focused on a wide range of team building and management issues, including but not limited to:

  • Leadership and Change
  • Harnessing Power and Persuasion
  • The Team Building Process
  • Handling Difficult Situations
  • Dealing with Change
  • High-Performance Skill in Communicating and Influencing
