Great things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of people.

Where's your weakest link?

Chase the bottleneck and dissolve the obstacles with collaborative play.

“You can never solve a problem on the level on which it was created.” - Einstein

Do you struggle with demotivated teams? Do you fail to deliver on your promises? Are you tired of hearing the same complaints and excuses? Are you making optimal use of each team member's skills?

Improve team dynamics with a collaborative workshop. Each workshop is designed to solve a specific problem for your unique situation and follows a design thinking process and other thinking styles to make the most of our most valuable assets - human intelligence.

It is crucial to spend at least a day or two per week for a few months in a hands-on role, typically product or project manager, to truly understand the underlying problem and allow for incremental, but sustainable and positive change. A 3 month (or longer) consulting contract where I empower and add tools to your team over time while cultivating healthy habits is adviced.
