Understanding Teamwork

What Is Your Team’s “Dashboard” Telling You?

Whether you are in the C-suite or report to middle management — are in sales or production — how people relate to each other is essential to a team’s success.  Teamwork requires more than just trust and effective communication.


Teamwork Depends On Effective Relationships

The tools and techniques you learn in this workshop are applicable in all types of group settings. In this fun-filled session, we’ll take a look at why people respond to others the way they do — their motivators and demotivators — and how you can use this information to improve your interactions with others.

  • Learn skills that enable you to interact with a wide range of people.
  • Appreciate who you are and how you behave.
  • Observe behavior in others and understand what the patterns mean.
  • Be able to make others more comfortable with who you are.
  • Reduce stress in yourself and others.
  • Be more confident.
  • Listen better.
  • Be less judgmental.
  • Have a successful plan to follow anytime you want to interact with someone.


Explore how others see your behavior.

Prior to the session, participants are asked to distribute a profiling instrument to 5 friends or colleagues. This is done in order to determine your own predominant behavior pattern.  The profile feedback received is intended to act as a point of reference—a language, regarding behavior patterns.  The workshop is aimed at recognizing our own behavior pattern as well as those of others.

This workshop  is for those who seek to improve their relationships with others in the workplace and in their personal lives.  The program shows you how identify individual behavior patterns and how these traits impact others. Once you understand how people consistently react to situations, we can help you adapt your interpersonal skills for more effective communications.

When it comes to regular vehicle maintenance, regular tune-ups are needed to make sure the vehicle stays in working shape.  Oil/filter changes and multi-point inspections are done on a regular basis to be sure that every element is functioning properly without major or unexpected deterioration, and thus causing problems to occur at the most inopportune time.

The same is true with any organizational or individual development program. Both internal (manager/supervisor) and external (consultant) follow-up will be part of the overall plan to ensure the concepts covered and action plans developed get applied and implemented after a workshop is completed.
