Building a Happy & Harmonious Team Culture
When’s the last time you looked at each other at the end of the week and celebrated what you were building together, your shared accomplishments? Every team wants this feeling, but few know how to get there. Team health is the key to creating a culture where this feeling of mutual satisfaction is experienced. According to a 2009 study at Warwick Business School, happier workers are 12 percent more productive while unhappier workers are 10 percent less productive. Happiness matters, for our own personal good and for the bottom line. We are pleased to offer a team lab that acts as a catalyst to move your team toward a new healthier, happier and more harmonious paradigm.

Do Any of the Following Apply to Your Team?
- You’re feeling burned out, stressed out, less creative and less engaged. You want more meaning, to make a bigger difference in the world.
- You’re growingly discontent with the status quo, want to shake things up, don’t want to die a slow death or become irrelevant.
- You’re beginning to see signs of possible team deterioration (conflict, disengagement, lowered morale, etc.). You want to move from good to great (take the team to the next level).
Are You Ready for Change?
Conflict and other symptoms of team dysfunction thrive where the underlying dynamics go unnoticed, unacknowledged and unaddressed. If you’re tired of the feelings and experiences related to ill health and ready to move into a new day, this may be the catalyst your team needs. Even if you’re in a good place, you may see the potential for improved team vitality. If you’re going to attract the best talent from the growing millennial work force, you can’t afford to drift toward irrelevance and a lack of organizational health.

We’re Going to Take Entropy Head on in the Following Ways:
Work together synergistically in a two-day intensive team lab that:
- Disrupts the status quo – introduces a new paradigm
- Sheds light on the dynamics of conflict that operate outside of awareness Spotlights the principles that will lead us to team health
- Create a strategic partnership over time that builds these principles into the culture and fabric of the team so that they become automatic, instinctual patterns.
