  • Creating Team Effectiveness Through a Common Language

    A manager seeks to build a diverse team of talent, but that diversity can result in conflict and wasted negative energy. LeaderShift LLC has brought Everything DiSC ® assessments and follow-up workshops to the table to allow the team members to understand that the unique differences between their team members are to be valued and their needs met in order for team harmony and open communication to proceed. Having the language of DiSC puts the team on the same page and allows them to "lighten up" about each others' behavioral tendencies and to have respect for their needs.

  • Non-Profit Board Development

    The non-profit Board is a unique animal in that it does not function like an intact team and after a year or two, its composition changes. But its work is no less important. It is critical that this group be coaxed into a harmonious working team quickly and then moved into the strategic planning mode. Our solution is called StrategyShift ©. This process defines the process and then through clearly defined exercises, guides the group to plan their Strategic Priorities, Goals, Timelines and Accountabilities for the coming period. We have implemented this successfully in several settings with positive results!
