Team Development


"Cindy helped our company better communicate and made our workplace more enjoyable, effective and profitable. She helped us address issues that might have otherwise been awkward or difficult to discuss, and did so with a practical and effective real-world approach. Cindy is a consummate professional who we enjoyed working with, and I would, (and have) happily referred her to friends and colleagues."

What does it take for a team to thrive? Why do some teams act as a cohesive unit, producing high quality work and have fun doing it, while others slog along dreading yet another unproductive meeting, break into factions, and can’t seem to agree on anything? Even with superior technical abilities, group members who can’t communicate effectively, question each others intentions, or don’t trust each other will never rise to the performance level needed to succeed in today’s competitive business environment. Guiding teams through an engaging facilitation, informed by data from major studies and today’s best literature, Cindy helps groups become more united, aligned and effective.

Cindy created her team facilitation process using data gathered from:

  • observations and experience from years working in teams

  • large studies conducted by Google and Deloitte

  • Patrick Lencioni’s The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, and

  • Stephen Covey’s The Speed of Trust 

    A module is also available to help the group understand each other’s work styles, employing DiSC, the most widely used corporate behavioral assessment. Team experiences are customized to meet each unique group’s needs and to achieve the results determined at the beginning of the engagement.

Results from her team facilitations include:

  • increased trust and reduced friction within the group

  • executive leadership skills enhanced

  • more effective communication

  • higher efficiency of senior managers by learning to delegate more

  • improved operational processes

  • broken down silos between departments

    Multiple turn-key initiatives developed and implemented to:

  • reduce timing of the organization’s recruiting process

  • attract a larger number of more qualified candidates

  • offset the difficulty in attracting candidates due to low wages

  • new employees become more productive quicker through better on-boarding processes

  • reduce turnover by understanding and responding to what engage staff

  • establish metrics to understand & report the results of initiatives
