Team Advantage is a dynamic program that accelerates performance, leadership capacity, and collaboration through a proven team coaching process — one that goes beyond a typical 2-day team-building event
The Big Idea
Team Advantage is a business-oriented game plan that supports attainment of an extraordinary business goal, one that is truly meaningful to a leader and their team. These goals typically stretch the team to go beyond mandates.
Blending the world of work and principles of sport, Team Advantage improves team dynamics and communication by employing a coach approach that promotes problem solving, conflict resolution, goal achievement and celebration of attainments in real time. The team creates their game plan, so there is a high level of ownership for outcomes. They create new ways of working in their team charter, which insures peer accountability beginning with game rules that highlight the notion-“no one wins unless we all win.”
Often called the “game changer or secret sauce,” by team leaders and executives, Team Advantage has been used by hundreds of high-performing teams and its results have been documented by forward-thinking companies for over two decades. Team leaders learn coaching skills in real time to become great with their people and team. Coaching addresses habitual blocks to performance.
In addition to focusing on attainment of the stretch goal, the program leaves the team with a replicable process for unleashing potential and growth. The bottom line is that people have fun working together again, and fun is a missing link in employee engagement and the biggest obstacle for creativity and inspired performance.
