Team Renewal


Team development sessions focus on conflict prevention and proactive team development.

Good teams have many characteristics such as trust, respect, clarity, flexibility, tradition, innovation, excellence and a sense of fun. Great work teams not only have these traits, but also the ability to both navigate and bounce back from difficult moments.

Team development sessions are a progressive series of three or four half-day events designed to develop a team’s capacity to effectively and respectfully prevent, manage and resolve the inevitable misunderstandings, tensions and conflicts that occur at work.

The specific design/focus for your team development sessions is negotiated either through a conversation with the team leader/designate or through a team assessment process where all team members are interviewed prior to the team development session(s).
