Appreciating Team Talent through the HBDI® Profile
Once an individual understands his or her thinking style preferences, the door is open to improved communication, leadership, management, problem-solving, decision-making, and other aspects of personal and interpersonal development. Prior to the session, participants complete a 120 question self-assessment online. During the session, a certified practitioner will provide each person with a comprehensive report outlining their dominant thinking style. Participants learn how they can use this information to ask questions regarding any business issue and also develop deeper trust bonds with work colleagues.
Climbing Everest... Bringing Together Amazing Teams
Energy increases when a team coalesces through, adaptability, trust, and a shared goal. Participants experience the inspiring story of a climbing team who help a blind fellow climber reach the summit of Mount Everest, overcoming multiple obstacles in the process. Participants learn the keys of high-performance teaming: purpose, communication, and steadfast trust. Also in this session, participants learn maturity continuum of teaming—how we can avoid the pitfalls of victim or egotistical behaviors. All skills are applied to current organizational issues.
Delegation and Peer "Hand-Offs"
How do we each show up for work each day? Do our moods affect others? How do our dealings with direct reports or colleagues affect their success? Participants learn the power of positive expectations by providing clear instructions, offering the right resources, and establishing two-way feedback. Accountability starts with ourselves.
Great teams capitalize on the different perspectives and knowledge of each team member. At times, we can reach impasses when we sincerely believe our way is the best way. Participants learn five ways of moving to action when differences of opinion bog down decisions and daily work. Learning how to create “third right answers” utilizes the best ideas of both viewpoints, creating one that is better than both of the originals.
Exploring Mental Models and New Paradigms
At times, underlying beliefs and unspoken rules can have limiting effects on creating new ideas for the future. Participants learn to identify organizational views, determine when these views are blocking new thought, and how to create new paradigms that lead to success.
Recharging Your Batteries for Demanding Careers and Lives

Do you feel as though your job is your life…or your life is a job? Participants examine symptoms of fatigue, discover a wealth of creative ideas and strategies for energy renewal, and learn how to perform at peak capacity.
