Team Skill Training
Strategic & Tactical Business Planning, Communications, Decision Making, Conflict Resolution
High performing teams thrive when they leverage the strengths of individual team members for maximum effect. IPS team building experiences begin building high performance teams with a neuroscience-based approach to identification and affirmation of each team member’s strengths. Team members also discover the value of FUN and utilizing the human capacity to create, innovate and successfully implement. Activities teach processes for forming teams, dealing with the evitable “storming” phase, the creation of norms, and building strategies and tactics for enhanced performance. Whether held in a meeting room at your location or hiking in Monty’s Rocky Mountain location, teams walk away from this experience ready to work synergistically and achieve peak performance.
