Our "Strategic Business Management" course is targeted at developing general manager awareness and thinking in middle managers. This unique computer simulation of a business, provides a stimulating learning environment for understanding the strategic, financial and business issues facing a firm.
Our team building approach is outlined here, this description will be a useful tool in helping you select a team building consultant. We only do team building with real teams, we do not do team building training. We do not believe in its efficacy.
Our leadership development approach describes our philosophy of leadership development, which supports the leadership/management development model available on the tools page of this Website. We are interested in helping you analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your current leadership/management development system and build a better more effective one. We believe in selecting from a number of quality products and tools already on the market to complete your system.

Our Team Building Approach

We customize team building:

  1. coaching the team-building sponsor,
  2. gathering data before holding any off-site meetings, and
  3. following up to help facilitate behavior change and confront team performance issues.
We have:
Worked with Capital Project teams all over the world to integrate Engineering, Business Units, Contractors, and Venture Partners: helping the integrated team
  1. commit to stretch objectives,
  2. develop a project structure that provided proper alignment,
  3. do the front end of the project right, and
  4. work through conflict.
Worked with leadership teams to confront the team issues that prevented them from effectively leading change.
Facilitated project teams facing contentious issues that made it difficult for line leaders to develop quality consensus recommendations.

Leadership Development
