Flawless Team Building

Our April 28-29 workshop sold out in 9 DAYS so we’ve added another session!

Yes, you can build any team, any time. No magic required. It’s a skill you can learn.

 Team Orientation Process

Learn, then practice the step-by-step team leadership process and activities to build a cohesive, high-performance team that will succeed with clear agreements and shared responsibility.

Accelerate Buy-in

Refocus and drive performance on existing teams at every level. Best of all, every team you ever lead or become a part of will start off strong — and you’ll achieve so much more together.

Our Secret Ingredient

The Responsibility Process

You’ll learn exactly how each of us takes (or avoids taking) responsibility for our teams, activities, interactions, choices — and lives.  The Team Orientation Process will unlock your own potential and show others how to unlock theirs.


Reliably produce results that matter because you understand exactly what to do when you share responsibility with others.


When you know how shared responsibility works, you become larger than any team problem and can overcome any team challenge.


When you are clearer about what to do to move forward, you experience less anxiety.


Being a part of a great team is never boring. It’s rewarding and feels effortless even though you are intensely focused and working hard.
