“Our organization has great people and clear business goals, but we lacked cohesion amongst our teams. With Leaders for Leaders, we learned strategies for better teamwork and developed concrete action steps to use back at work. I was blown away by what we achieved!

This was the missing piece we needed to take our company to the next level.”

The Power of Healthy Tension

As leaders, we often treat every challenge as a problem to be solved, with a right or wrong answer.

 Preserve Stability or Stimulate Change?
Manage Cost or Maintain Quality?
Centralized Coordination or Decentralized Freedom?
Work or Home?

But this “either/or” thinking is a dangerous trap! To be more effective— both at work and at home — we need to realize that many of life’s challenges are tensions to be managed.

The Power of Healthy Tension provides a simple framework that allows teams to tap into the power of “both/and” thinking. By doing this, we gain a massive competitive advantage, and move from surviving to thriving.

It has transformed our understanding of how to approach issues like team building, leadership, change management and developing healthy dialogue on tough topics.”​

Benefits of a Team Building Workshop:

CUSTOMIZED – Every team is different. A private workshop ensures that the program design and learning outcomes are tailored to your unique group and its workplace challenges.

FOCUSED – A private workshop provides you with the rare and valuable opportunity to assess current reality while establishing a plan for a successful future.

R.O.I. – A small investment into the effectiveness of your team will result in significant returns back in the workplace.

FUN – A perfect blend of learning, interacting, and community will strengthen team bonds and develop a foundation of trust.
