Facilitating Effective Meetings.jpg



When a sports team is working well together, it can feel like magic. We've all experienced it, either as a team member or as a fan. Fortunately, you do not have to be Michael Jordan or Mia Hamm to have the skills you need to build and lead high performing teams in your organization.

An important leadership competency for any size organization, the ability to build and lead high performing teams is especially critical in small-to-midsize businesses. Here, people must work closely together, wear many hats, and work effectively across the organization to get tasks accomplished quickly enough to remain competitive.


This 1-day workshop will take participants on a journey of self and team discovery to build trust, honesty, respect, and better working relationships to dramatically enhance their teams performance. The workshop will enable participants to identify their own strengths and weakness as well as understand their colleagues better and develop their team purpose and focus. The group of participants will collaboratively establish a positive plan of action to take forward. This workshop will also assist participants in building their resilience to stress so they are better equipped to manage change professionally and productively.



This workshop will provide each team member with:

  • A better understanding of themselves and how they relate to others

  • A mapped out strategic vision and its pillars

  • A sense of direction and purpose

  • An understanding of how to create and sustain optimum performance within their team

  • The ability to effectively manage and adapt to change

  • A full 360 feedback and the development of an action plan



Contact us today to find out how you can bring the Building and Leading Effective Teams Workshop to your community, or organization. We have included the standard workshop outline below. All training can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
