Build a Strong Team

Designed for your team to attend together, discover the unique team role each person contributes and how to maximize the team’s combination of strengths to ensure productivity and cohesiveness.

This half-day class allows each individual to analyze the preferred role they take on in most team situations. The Team Dimensions assessment is used to reveal each person’s most effective team role, allowing the team to develop a plan to capitalize on the strengths of each team member. This class is offered at least once a quarter or when requested for a specific team.
