"Even smart, committed, creative, generous people disagree at times..."
Groups of people are just that: literal groups of literal people. Each is a collection of unique and diverse skills, varying levels of ability and investment, multiple personality and work styles, and yet groups are expected to accomplish something remarkable together, often with little support or direction. We help teams access the best in each individual, combining that with the best of their teammates and all in service to the team’s objective.
Frequently Requested Services for Teams:
Even smart, committed, creative, generous people disagree at times. As a result, teams can sometimes experience division, inertia or persistent confusion. Instead of viewing conflict with alarm or as a signal to stop and take a different approach altogether, we view conflict as generative and facilitate its resolution in ways that model respect and recalibrate everyone to the larger vision.
Experiencing something new together bonds people and invites new behavior. Designing an off-site experience to address your specific needs is a powerful way to normalize and navigate change, launch new initiatives and model organizational values. Low budget or high end, playful or serious, on-site or off, single or multi day adventures – it doesn’t matter. The experiences signal that something important is happening, and invite those present to engage with each other in new ways.
Facilitation and Deliberation
For issues requiring insight from all vantage points, a neutral facilitator can help cut through the fog and personal histories of a team. Bringing in an outsider allows all to participate fully and can also be useful to disrupt certain power dynamics and surface significant issues that would be unacceptable for insiders to address given the prevailing culture.
