The Whole is Greater than the Sum of Its Parts
When a team clicks, it’s an exhilarating experience. There is an infectious positive energy and bottom line. It’s not about any one person or even everyone together.
The team becomes its own entity with a synergy that endlessly feeds, nourishes and enriches itself. There is a fluid, intuitive, higher intelligence as people individually and collectively pursue their purpose and value.
Safe, connected and creative – welcoming candor and spirited debate.
This is the DNA of a thriving team. Yet this cohesive merging of interdependency and autonomy doesn’t happen by accident. Teams are living organisms requiring intention, commitment and a continuous loop of interpersonal learning together.
I work with leadership teams, departments, management teams, educators and membership groups to strengthen healthy team practices and engage servant-leadership, emotional intelligence and psychological safety.
Co-Creating Thriving Teams
Who Am I? Who Are You? Who Are We Together?
Strong interpersonal skills combined with permission to engage, debate and disagree provide the fertile ground for team engagement and innovation. Teams create this rich environment by understanding and leveraging individual differences in areas including communication, motivation and decision-making styles.
Conflict and Relationship Coaching
Re-Establishing Emotional Safety and a Collaborative Path Forward
Conflict is often the result of accumulated and small misunderstandings that erodes trust. Conflict can arise through interpersonal differences or from unresolved task issues that manifest into interpersonal gridlock. In either case, unresolved conflict creates a vice-grip hold on joy, motivation, initiative and collaboration.
