From there, we’ll create a customized retreat strategy and determine the perfect location to be sure that your time together is highly valuable and gets you the results you dream about.
BUILDING TEAM TRUST
The elusive goal of team trust. It’s the foundation for creating a cohesive team. It’s also sometimes hard to define, but you know when it’s there – and when it isn’t. So how do you get it? How do you create a team where everyone is aligned, working towards the same goals, and you have each other’s backs?
Team trust comes from an environment of consistency and communication. It’s focused on behaviors such as reliability, congruence, psychological safety, vulnerability and productive conflict. These things are hard earned on a team but ultimately worth the effort it takes to get there.
We’ll work with your team to discover what’s getting in the way of team trust and recommend the best path forward. A team assessment will create a baseline of where the team is today and create motivation for what’s possible.
The goal is to get your team committed to change, willing to be honest with each other about what’s needed to move forward. This highly custom program is designed to break down barriers, establish agreements, and move teams forward fast.
Yes, we know it gets a bad rap. But if you do it right, it works. Team building programs should be engaging, interactive, high energy and fun! Our team building programs consist of a variety of experiential activities designed to provide personal insights, ah-ha moments, and a shared team experience that will result in a deeper understanding of what creates a powerful team.
Team building is ideal for new teams, merged teams, teams with new leadership, teams with a new strategic direction, blended remote teams.
