Teams and Groups

"Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.  This is the power of a committed group of people."

Team Development

Team Development. We assess your group against the characteristics of high performing teams and develop strategies for enhancing or improving their functioning and effectiveness through our team development process.  Our process includes: (1) clarifying team goals and expected outcomes, (2.) identifying appropriate organizational structures, (3.) clarifying role expectations and responsibilities, (4.) creating robust work systems, processes, and procedures and (4) building healthy, trusting relationships.

Board Development

Board Development: The strength of a nonprofit’s board is one of the primary determinants of organizational success.  We help boards increase their effectiveness thereby helping the organization to better achieve their mission and the impact it desires.

Meeting Design and Facilitation

Meeting Design and Facilitation.  Good meetings don’t just happen – they take careful planning and intention.  We assure more productive meetings by clarifying your meeting’s purpose and objectives and by building an agenda that assures, through an open flow of information and the full engagement of participants, that desired outcomes are achieved.

Conflict Management and Mediation

Conflict Management and Mediation. Conflict is inevitable and unavoidable; it is part of all normal, healthy relationships and teams.  We help manage disagreements between individuals and groups in ways that resolve differences, strengthen working relationships, increase productivity, and build communication skills.
