The smooth and harmonious functioning of a team is crucial to organizational health and productivity. Many team members have a hand in contributing to situations of conflict, and also a role to play in resolving issues that impact the team.
Our team cohesiveness assessment and facilitated discussion combines the approaches of our most popular workplace training and development solutions: workplace assessments to solicit input and validate the perceptions of team members, and facilitated team building sessions that encourage each team member to
be accountable for finding solutions to issues impacting the team.

Delivered in three phases:
An initial consultation with key stakeholders and a series of private one-on-one interviews
During phase one, team members participate in one-on-one interviews with our consultant. Each interviewee will be encouraged to voice their concerns in a private, safe, and structured environment of what they believe are the issues impacting the team, and what they believe is required to build a stronger, more cohesive team. Phase one concludes with a written report containing a thematic analysis of the interview data. The report is optional, but recommended as it provides valuable insight and a record that stakeholders can refer back to once the consultant has completed all phases. Report maintains confidentiality and anonymity.
A facilitated team discussion with our consultant
Phase two sees the full team come together for a half-day facilitated discussion. During the session, the team reviews key findings and themes uncovered in phase one. From there, the team works toward building respect and trust for one another, and discusses solutions to current and future issues.
Phase three is a facilitated follow-up team discussion, recommended one to three months later. The consultant will check in with the team to collectively troubleshoot previously agreed to solutions and explore any new problems or issues.
