CUSTOMIZIED TO YOUR NEEDS
Following is a description of a generalized training program in how to work better as a team. But if you have an intact team with a history of challenges, a more customized approach that specifically addresses your team's needs is recommended.
Training alone is insufficient to address habits of dealing ineffectively with conflicts or a history of organizational dysfunction. However, significant progress can be made when team members are adequately prepared. RI provides a four-step process of preparation with evaluation/diagnosis, short technique-focused trainings, structured team-work activities guided by RI's skilled facilitators, and ongoing executive coaching. During these activities team members collaborate on identified work issues while practicing specific techniques to resolve conflicts and clarify decision making.
A sample proposal describing RI's Four Phase Teambuilding Program is available. You can request a PDF copy by clicking here: Request Four Phase Teambuilding Program PDF.

Individual success at work is becoming more dependent on the ability to work well with others. People are put into a group and call it a "team," but this label alone does not give the ability or knowledge to make the team effective. Performance evaluations now include "teaming," but few people understand the concept or have the skills necessary to succeed. Fortunately, this increasingly important knowledge is learnable.
Your employees will learn how to work better together as a team in this engaging, entertaining and impactful program. They will learn how to function as a team, primarily by being better able to handle the inevitable disagreements which exist. They will realize that their personal success now depends on the success of others and they will have the tools to make that success a reality.
