Team Development

Team Development

Learn more about our work with Team Innovation and Creativity in these videos.

Our custom team development programs strengthen interpersonal skills and group dynamics, whether your team is brand new or well established.

These programs bring out the energy and passion that drive business success. Teams are challenged with experiences that strengthen trust and communication, while gaining a better understanding of differences. Allowing enough time to experience and reflect on insights is an important part of experiential learning. People learn best when given the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment, while receiving real-time feedback.  

To complement their Team-Building programs, clients often request our Assessment and Team Coaching programs to support continued effectiveness upon returning to the workplace.

We have designed successful programs that work for small and very large groups (200+ people).  These experiences can take place in a variety of venues including your company meeting rooms, conference centers, the outdoors, and unique locations of your choice.  Contact us to learn how we could partner with you to develop your team.

Levels of Team Building:

 Team Development: These programs include both experiential activities, as well as the use of an assessment tool to build awareness of differences and strengths within your team. These assessments may include MBTI®, FIRO-B®, or TKI.  We can also incorporate assessments you are already using internally. Examples of assessments clients wanted to use include MBTI, DiSC, EQ, StrengthsFinder, Emergenitics, or any other that you are using.

Team Interventions: These programs include assessment tools, as well as long-term strategies to improve performance. These projects can include leadership coaching or team coaching. Intervention experiences aim to bring quick changes to your team when things get tough.

Sarah has worked with our group on several occasions in regards to training. She is very professional. I have had the pleasure of setting up team events and she continues to ask the right questions in order to provide the best training possible. Sarah continues to prove that team work does really work and everyone has something to share as part of a team.
— Teresa Welsch, Kohler Company
Sarah is knowledgeable in her field of Leadership and Organizational Development. She demonstrated this with questions that helped us to identify needs and desires of our organization for both team building and enrichment of our values. Sarah took all of the worry out of planning a very successful day of education, fun and enlightenment for a group of 30+ for two different divisions on two different days. I feel that we just barely touched the capabilities of Sarah and her staff. I truly hope to work with Sarah in the future.
— Liz Burke, Retired Learning Executive, Time Warner Cable
I had the pleasure of observing Sarah facilitate challenge activities with a group of emerging leaders. The team worked with enthusiasm through the emotionally and physically rigorous program, and I was impressed by Sarah’s ability to connect those experiences to the work environment. Not only was it great fun, but a day strengthening the team dynamic, boosting individual self-efficacy, and promoting collaborative work ethics.
— Former participant
Sarah is an excellent facilitator for experiential learning. She takes the time to listen to the client, develop the learning based on what the client describes, and offer the appropriate program for learning.
