I want to have a stronger team, any suggestions?


Greatness as a leader is only for those who really care about their employees. Cultivate your people and others will envy you and your position. Appreciate and value the individuals on your teams & they will out perform your expectations. Don't build teams - build up your employees.


Life will be much easier for you if you really, authentically like all those who make up your team. If you really do not like someone, perhaps you can still help them as a great leader. Show interest in them. Find out what their drivers are, perhaps you can encourage them and assist them to move forward into a position they'd be better suited for. If you benefit as well, we'll just look at it as a win-win. That's the hardest situation you'll need to deal with. If you'd like to discuss while you're going through this, just book your first appointment here.


I used to believe in biology, not chemistry.  Give me big and strong and fast. But after twenty years, I'm a big believer now in club chemistry.......You almost always have it when you win; and oftentimes it is team chemistry that leads to winning....... make no mistake; when we build teams, we build them with an eye on chemistry; because we know how destructive the opposite can be.  Larry Lucchino, President and CEO, Boston Red Sox


Gaining a competitive edge in today’s global market requires, NOT building a team but creating a culture where individuals feel their strengths are utilized and that others appreciate them for who they are and what they have to contribute. How a team works together as a whole, is the over-all gestalt that is seen, but it is the individuals themselves that make up the team and that determines success. As has been said many times before, a well-designed and coordinated team that communicates and collaborates well, typically achieves better results than individuals working in competition, alone or in parallel. Although there are no guaranties in life, taking the next step is required to make the desired future a reality.  I'm happy to facilitate your small teambuilding for a 1/2 or full day. 


 "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn." - Benjamin Franklin


Peter Neufeld, director of organizational development and talent management for Husky Injection Molding Systems, says the MBTI sessions have been effective at both the individual and team levels.  "It's helped them to understand each other better because it normalizes people's preferences - when you can attribute differences to a type, rather than to a person, it helps people accept difference."


The MBTI instrument crosses cultures and provides a common language.  An extrovert in Shanghai might not look exactly like one in the U.S., but they have similar ways of communicating.


Increase employee and team effectiveness and promote success throughout the enterprise. Full-day Teambuilding for groups of 6 to 10 individuals include:


  1. Individual interviews with each team member and team leader (pre-work)
  2. Administration of the EQ or MBTI Assessment (pre-work)
  3. Potential one-on-one feedback sessions
  4. Off-site teambuilding session, which includes:
    1. Morning refreshments and expectations talk
    2. Overview, purpose of workshop, and individual EQ or MBTI results
    3. Icebreakers
    4. EQ or MBTI handouts
    5. EQ or MBTI activities and team discussions
    6. Team Analysis & Reflection activities
    7. EQ or MBTI team results interpretation
    8. Action Planning
    9. Wrap-Up
  5. Potential team follow-up meeting 


Benefits of using the EQ & MBTI assessment tool in teambuilding:

  • Is easy to use and cost-effective
  • Is well researched, reliable, and valid
  • Offers a logical model of the consistency of human behavior
  • Provides neutral and affirmative language to deal with differences
  • Emphasizes the value of diversity
  • Identifies assets and blind spots of teams and team members
  • Helps clarify the fit between people and their jobs
  • Is used worldwide
  • Can be applied to six core issues that affect teams (communication, team culture, leadership, change, stress, and problem solving/conflict resolution)


More than 10,000 companies, 2,500 colleges and universities and 200 government agencies in the United States use the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI), the Gold Standard of team building tools.


From the State Department to McKinsey & Co., it’s a rite of passage. It’s estimated that 50 million people have taken the Myers-Briggs personality test since the Educational Testing Service first added the research to its portfolio in 1962.
