Workshops for Team Leaders & Project Managers

 With Our TurboTeam™ platform Teams:

We offer one and two day workshops for team leaders & project managers. Public workshops are available through the Project Management Institute's World Seminars program; we also offer customized on-site workshops to our clients.

You will learn how to recognize and address the "people-side problems' that teams inevitably encounter. We'll familiarize you with our TurboTeam™ platform and its easy to use tools. These tools get teams off to a good start, help teams get unstuck and build the team’s capability to function as a high-performing team.

Our workshops are hands-on and practical. Organizations and teams improve the quality of decision-making by building bench-strength in critical thinking skills strategic thinking innovation communication & influence teamwork & collaboration

Our definition of critical thinking includes problem-solving, strategic thinking, communication, collaboration, social computing, creativity, innovation and global awareness.

Our Agile Thinking frameworks and best practices are revolutionary. Rather than teaching critical thinking as an abstract philosophy we take an immediate focus on what to do and how to do it in an organizational setting

It sounds like a lot, and it is. But we have developed frameworks and job aids that make it easy and intuitive. Our techniques get results because they have been tested and refined through five years of experience on thousands of participants. We've learned what works. We listen carefully to feedback from our participants and continually improve our offerings.

We offer workshops, coaching and consulting both in-person and through the web.

Many of our clients start with our Jumpstart Workshop -- a one-day intensive session in which we teach the tools and frameworks through mutually-selected  business problems.

In business settings, critical thinking and decision-making is often a group process. It is constrained by organizational culture, goals and processes. So we help you think through how to be most effective given your current organizational style. We also can help you determine how to create an environment that values and supports critical thinking.

Increasing your critical thinking capability will give you a competitive advantage because it results in informed strategies, better decisions,effective communication and collaboration.

In our workshops, you will:

  • Learn how to apply specific skills to improve your ability to critically think about current issues, projects or challenges.
  • Use tools and techniques to assess the environment and other factors affecting how you analyze problems and evaluate solutions.
  • Get the Agile Thinking Toolkit - an electronic tool that serves as an easy-to-use refresher of everything we cover in our course.
  • Practice your skills and schedule post-session coaching.

On-Site Workshops

We deliver world-class presentations, executive briefings and workshops in one and two-day formats.

These are not academic exercises - we offer very practical sessions with a laser focus on how to apply critical thinking in the workplace.

We work with you and your team both before and after workshops to make sure you get the most out of them when it matters - back at work.

Virtual Sessions

This online version of the "Lunch and Learn" format enables your team to meet remotely or to get together in a conference room with a projector and speakerphone.

You select topics relevant to you to create your own series which we lead in 90-minute sessions delivered over the web.

Online discussion groups are used to continue the conversation, ask questions and provide coaching between sessions.

Just-in-Time Coaching

Agile thinking skills are not developed in a day. It takes ongoing practice and coaching so that you begin to think about real problems and situations differently. This is how critical thinking becomes an applied skill rather than an academic exercise.

We provide remote coaching for both individuals and teams to help them incorporate effective critical thinking skills into their day to day work. We also advise leaders  on how to build a work environment that fosters creative thinking.

You pick the package that makes sense for you, your schedule and your budget. Whether it's email, web meeting, phone or messaging, we'll be there when you need us.
