Team Performance

"Listen to the voice within so you can engage in work that gives you personal fulfillment and benefits your organization." - Stephen Covey

The Spirit of Excellence recognizes greatness is contagious. This spirit grows when we appreciate the unique talents in one another. It is expanded and fueled when we relate with reasoning and intellect, AND with a respectful heart.

We love watching great teams become superior. We help it happen in the following steps:

  • Pre-consultation determines commitment and discovery of your specific desired outcomes.
  • Game Plan is developed and agreed upon
  • Consultation style is straight up, friendly, strength focused and insightful.
  • Experiential-based approach that results in people being engaged and energized. Activities, discussion, stories, expert panels from within the group, 1-1 meetings and other educational media make training relevant.
  • Strengths are assessed, identified and committed to team effectiveness.
  • Real problems are solved, and success strategies are consciously repeated.
  • Follow-up we reinforce, assess and assist in the implementation of skills and attitudes that consistently contribute to team excellence.
  • Accountability measures are focused on throughout all training activities and as follow-up evaluation tools.
