BreakThroughs in Teambuilding™

High Performing Organizations have come to realize the positive effect of mobilizing their “people power.”  Yet, some managers struggle with building productive teams.  The most successful managers have long realized the positive impact the team concept can have on performance, productivity, and profit.  However, many still don’t understand the real dynamics of teams and how to create situations where people work well together to accomplish great things.

BreakThroughs in Teambuilding™ helps managers, and employees, enhance their overall effectiveness by laying the groundwork for team cohesion and development.  Managers learn how to assess and act on risk appropriately, they learn cooperation and how to lead by example, and they learn the power of trust, as well as the value of demonstrating mutual respect.

Participants create important Strategic Business Initiatives (SBIs).  SBIs are tailored to individual and organizational needs and provide multiple opportunities for participants to demonstrate effective teamwork under simulated conditions.  Each SBI requires participants to skillfully plan, assess risk, set goals, communicate, manage limited resources, and adhere to deadlines.  Participants are intentionally assigned to small groups wherein they work with other team members to develop successful plans and strategies inside of simulated business pressures and constraints. Immediately following each SBI is a feedback and analysis session in which participants discuss how to apply the new skills and lessons learned to their job, team, and broader organization.  

Breakthroughs in Teambuilding™ prepares participants to:
