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.

RESULTS

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

CONFIDENCE

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

LOWER STRESS

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

MORE FUN

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.

Attention

VPs, Directors, Team Leads, ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, Project Managers, and professionals who work in teams to get things done

You Will
  • Understand why a team does or doesn’t generate a felt sense of shared responsibility
  • Have diagnostic and interpersonal tools you can use to build collaboration
  • Know there is always an effective action you can take to build any team, at any time
  • Get your own work done easier, faster, and better when dependent on others
  • Surround yourself with team members who take ownership
  • Move past upsets and frustrations faster, more naturally, and with less residue
  • Know how and when to gently contribute or, if necessary, take charge to get folks aligned and moving forward
  • Gain respect and put yourself in the position to be promoted

I learned the underlying essentials for success with Agile, and more importantly, for a significant and satisfying human existence.

“In my experience, awareness of The Responsibility Process has been a total game-changer to making communication (especially asynchronous communication) work in geographically distributed teams.”

All of Christopher Avery’s work is instrumental in empowering and engaging leaders. When a candidate obtains these skills they immediately are a step above the others. A certification in these skills is a clear indication of future excellence.

“I go through the responsibility process several times a day. It is helping me to be happier with my own decisions and helping my clients to lead and empower people, for real. 🙂 It is simple yet so powerful and difficult to master, but worth investing your time to learn, to become aware, to confront your thoughts and beliefs.”

Clebar de Cunha Pinto
Lean - Agile Coach, Peru

Go; this can change your whole outlook.

What a difference it makes when people in your team take Responsibility! Before the workshop, I was not aware.

Werner Fischer
Manager R&D, Thomas-Krenn.AG, AUSTRIA

My life and career transcended to a new level. The business went into hyper speed. We have simply become one of the top-performing companies in our industry.

Thomas Houdeshell
President Of Atek Plastic

A year ago, I was struggling. I was overwhelmed by problems and demands, I wasn’t happy with the direction my job was going. In the last year of working with Christopher, I have worked out what matters to me and what I really want. I give the team space to take responsibility and ownership for their delivery. I found a different way to inspire people in their work, and I am enjoying it so much more.
