TEAM BUILDING WORKSHOPS
Your team is a reflection of your leadership...
And if you’re only focused on your ability to knock tasks off your to-do list or achieve your personal career goals, you’re missing an opportunity to step into a leadership role where you have the power to inspire your entire team and organization to perform at a higher level.
Maybe you’d like to lead a team and feel like you could make a bigger difference in your current organization if they gave you more responsibility. Or maybe you’re already managing a team, but you don’t feel like you’re working in sync, and they aren’t giving you the respect and trust you deserve.
If you’ve ever thought to yourself…
“I don’t like confrontation, so I’d rather avoid awkward or disciplinary conversations.”
“My job would be SO much easier if my team took more initiative and worked together.”
“The only way to make sure it’s done right is to do it yourself.”
“I wonder when it’ll be my turn to lead a team or get promoted?”
“I wish I had the confidence to speak up and share my ideas more often.”
...it’s probably because you haven’t shifted your mindset from manager to leader yet.
Reframing how you think about your big picture role in your organization can help you finally transition into that more fulfilling leadership space you know you were meant for, so you can put your big vision into action.
You don’t have to be good at everything to be a good leader. You don’t have to have all the answers. And you don’t have to quiet self-expression, be more assertive, or even strive harder.
Learn what it takes to be a likeable, effective and confident leader...
Each year, I facilitate a limited number of team-building workshops to help you start showing up as the leader you want your team to see you as—and the one you know you are, underneath the layers of self-doubt and fear.
Below are sample workshops I can facilitate, but I’m also open to customizing any experience to meet the needs of you and your team.
STRATEGIC SILENCES How to Get More Out of Your Team by Asking Them to Work Less
All work and no play makes anyone a dull performer. Building downtime into your offsite helps your team be more productive, because they have the energy to focus for longer periods and get better at prioritizing problems.
Frequent strategic breaks also re-energize the mind and body, spark creativity, and enhance well-being, so you’ve got a happier team on your hands.
The Method: You conduct an Offsite or Day-Long event and I design the strategic breaks that’ll help your team stay focused throughout the long day, so they can refresh their brains and be truly creative and innovative.

MBTI TEAM BUILDING Build Stronger Teams and Organizations Using the Power of Personality
The biggest challenges most managers face are personality-based. You can hire the best of the best, but if your employees aren’t working in sync and you don’t have them in roles that are aligned with their inherent strengths, your team will never perform to its full potential.
When you understand how each employee likes to work, what they excel or struggle with, and what their underlying motivations are, you can put the most efficient teams together and inspire every team member to take ownership over their individual roles and responsibilities. You’ll also understand how to give better feedback and “flex” your leadership style to accommodate different personalities on your team.
The Method: As a Certified MBTI instructor, I facilitate one, two and half day workshops to help teams build self-awareness and understand each other’s differences, so everyone communicates and acts in a way that respects the individual personalities and work styles of their colleagues. And that means less office politics, more creative collaboration.
