Tools We Use

Emotions are contagious. They spread from one person to another quickly, either strengthening or harming the organization. Mounting pressure and rapid organizational change make it even more challenging for teams to collaborate.

Without developing the foundational skills of Emotional Intelligence, even your most talented employees will not reach their full potential. It is a scientific fact that emotions precede thought. When emotions run high, they change the way our brain's function…diminishing our cognitive abilities, decision-making powers, and even interpersonal skills.

Developing and maintaining a high-performance team can be one of the biggest challenges a leader faces. The Drexler/Sibbet TPM illustrates team development as seven stages, four to create the team and three to describe increasing levels of sustained performance. Teams rarely follow a linear process and may go back and forth through the stages. This powerful tool can be used as a framework and common language.

This workshop includes an online team assessment, and the survey provides direct data about how individuals assess their team’s performance and reflects responses to statements about each of the seven key stages.
