Team Development, Team Building & Leadership Development. Energize, Educate, Inspire!
These in-depth and focused programs develop specific “soft skills” for individuals, teams, leaders and organizations. The emphasis is on learning positive behaviours that are transferred to the workplace.

Organizations must have effective leadership at all levels in order to be successful. Developing effective leaders is a deliberate and ongoing process. This multi-stage program will inspire participants to set a compelling personal leadership vision, help them to assess their current reality and give them the tools they need for success.
Is your team struggling to keep up with the rapid pace of change? In Navigating Change we explore the link between our need for innovation and the challenge of coping with the change it inevitably causes.
Is your team working from a rock-solid foundation of trust? Trust is what enables people to collaborate, build strong respectful relationships and contribute fully to the team’s work. It allows them to take on new assignments and take productive risks. Through a series of powerful experiences, we take people out of their comfort zones in a safe, supportive environment where they learn to re-define what is possible.
Communication is vital for success, yet it is the number one challenge for organizations worldwide. In this workshop we address interpersonal and interdepartmental communication through personal styles assessments (such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ or Identity Mapping™) and a series of interactive challenges.
Whether as a leader or a team player, much of a person’s success is based on their ability to be in touch with, monitor and manage their emotional interactions.

Are your team members locked in destructive conflict? Does your team spend too much time in unproductive “storming” and too little time truly performing This session will help team members find that “sweet spot” where they can productively exploit differences of opinion, resolve destructive conflict, and find common ground in the team setting.
Are your employees actively engaged in their work? Research by the Gallup Organization has found that people who have an opportunity to focus on their strengths every day are 6 times as likely to be engaged in their jobs.
The most valuable personal leadership development is possible when people combine an accurate picture of their current state (strengths and areas for development) with a sense of which attributes are most relevant to their career aspirations. 360 degree personal assessments have the advantage of confidentially gathering information from a variety of sources…
Organizations and Teams often face challenges the seem insurmountable, such as the ever present battle lines drawn between planning and implementation or the debate over change versus stability. Polarity Management™ supplements traditional either/or problem solving with the ability to capitalize on competing values that are unsolvable, unavoidable, and indestructible. This both/and approach results in transforming “unsolvable problems” into organizational strengths.
The Strength Deployment Inventory® (SDI®) is the cornerstone tool of Relationship Awareness Theory. Where many tools measure behaviour, SDI® examines the motivations and values that create those behaviours. Identifying people’s unique driving forces is tremendously helpful – particularly when bottlenecks occur and organizational results begin to suffer.
