Many leaders are struggling to help their teams cope with isolation, disengagement, miscommunication, burn out, exhaustion, and complacency. With our learning experiences, we guide you through practicing curiosity to address those challenges. Our clients are often surprised by the rapid increase of self-awareness, trust and relationship building, and clear communication in our experiential learning workshops that last just one to three hours.
While we can return to guide your team on a regular basis to focus on different topics, we help you develop communications skills so you can facilitate your own difficult conversations and make what you learn stick. Otherwise, you’ll just slip back into old habits once our engagement ends.
We specialize in helping teams and organizations:
- Identify how to show respect to one another so that they can effectively get work done and carry out their mission (organizational culture, 7 Forms of RespectⓇ)
- Articulate what success looks like and feel like so they can have a workplace culture that makes people want to work harder and stay longer (goal setting)
- Practice curiosity on themselves and others so they can increase their self awareness and deepen empathy (belonging and inclusion)
- Communicate their thoughts clearly, so that there is less confusion and fewer complaints (communication skills)

CuriosityBased Goal Setting
Are you tired of overly complicated strategic plans that don’t address what your team actually cares about? Are you fed up with values-setting sessions that feel like exhausting word-smithing exercises? This fast-paced, interactive workshop can serve as a mini retreat or to kickoff your strategic planning. The session starts with a trust-building exercise. We’ll then guide you through surfacing individuals’ hopes and concerns so that as a team, you can determine your priorities. You’ll also get detailed documentation of the discussion from us to support your organizational planning.
Are you committed to fostering an inclusive culture? Do you want to move beyond just talk? Are some people in your organization uncomfortable talking about inclusion or perhaps even tired of talking about it? The session can be held on its own or as part of a retreat. It can complement any diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training you’ve already engaged in. You’ll build mutual empathy and trust while practicing vulnerability and curiosity. Your team members will become aware of their own individual blind spots through having personal and hard conversations. Session includes: Reflect on your personal history, explore and learn from your assumptions.
Are you worried about your communication skills eroding from too much remote work? Are you looking for opportunities to build your team’s morale and skills simultaneously? Then take one workshop, sign up for a series, or even make a session part of your next retreat. You’ll become more aware of your communication blind spots through fast-paced, engaging practice and individualized coaching in real-time. You can move from “fake, pretend” listening to effective listening and from asking the “usual, so-so” questions to powerful questions. Session topic options include: Listening skills, Inquiry skills, Giving feedback, and Admitting mistakes.
Is your team struggling to collaborate effectively and efficiently? Do you want to foster a culture of respect? What happens when people define “respect” differently?

We help you get clear on which forms of respect matter to your team and to individual team members.
