TEAM BUILDING

Our team building programs focus on bringing out the best in your team. Our focus is on individual growth, clear communication, improved leadership skills, and the ability to work closely together.

Our team building programs range from simple “getting to know you” exercises to multi-day retreats and can be customized to cover a wide range of areas, such as Diversity, High-Impact Performance, Clarity in Communication, and much more.

Team Building Programs can be customized in the areas of:
  • Diversity
  • High Impact Performance
  • Clarity in Communication
  • Conflict and Stress Management
  • Ownership, Commitment, Buy-in
  • Team and Personal Accountability
  • Group Dynamics

Effective team leadership depends on leadership abilities. A Good Team Leader:

  • Knows and strives for the goal
  • Ensures a cooperative environment
  • Builds the team members confidence
  • Sets and works through priorities
  • Manages performance through feedback

In any business team building is important. The focus is to concentrate in bringing out the best in a team – this ensures individual growth, clear communication, improved leadership skills and the ability to work closely together.

Every team building program illustrates a common understanding of communication and teamwork; and the impact it has on an organization, its management, employees, job performance and the workplace.

Team building ranges from simple “getting to know” you exercises to honest and open multi-day retreats. This includes personal and group assessment to help individuals to understand their roles and how others perceive them. The goal is to help them understand problem-solving in a group setting and be open to addressing difficult issues and willing to take the agreed upon action.

BUSINESS COACHING

Our business coaching services offer personal support and feedback coupled with practical and structured business planning. This approach fosters an environment of “disciplined accountability” to ensure your success.

Business Coaching is about

  • Developing personal performance

Business coaching offers personal support and feedback with practical and structured business planning and brings a disciplined accountability. It increases performance potential and helps career development. In the small business market, it is also about driving profit as much as it is about developing the person.

Testimonial:

“I have been working with Margarita, as my business coach, since about January, 2008. She has not only helped me to successfully deal with others in business but has also inspired and empowered me for personal growth. My attitude has changed and others have shared their appreciation for the improved communication and commitment to our team goals. I have learned to evaluate situations, try to negotiate more and most importantly – to stay in integrity. I am more fulfilled in my job and those around me seem to like the change. Margarita’s commitment to my personal success really makes this a team venture. She is a source of accountability and a plethora of guidance and wisdom. I look forward to our continued achievements.”

LUNCH & LEARNS

We know everyone is busy and not always ready for a private coaching session. In this thought we provide a Lunch & Learn series where you can join with peers and engage with us on a variety of timely topics that will fire up your learning passions while ‘breaking bread’.

Below are a few of the topics we cover in our Lunch & Learns:

Work-Life Balance

Conflict Management
From small disagreements to potentially explosive situations, conflict is a natural part of our lives. Learn a proven strategy that will help you be upfront and honest in dealing with conflict, resulting in increased harmony in your life.
Managing Emotions

Finding Your Passion
Are you living the way you want, a life that honors and reflects what your values are? Look at ways to reignite your passion for those things that are truly important to you.
Stress Management
Understanding what your stress triggers are, will help you to be better prepared for those unexpected events that inevitably enter our lives. Take the steps necessary to minimize daily stressors and make your life more fulfilling and enjoyable.
Time Management
Do you have the desire to take better control of your time, ultimately utilizing your time better? Learn surprisingly effective solutions that will make you less harried, more productive—and, ultimately, more successful.
Personality Differences
Are you a stickler for details? Do you love new challenges? Can you get things done under pressure? Discover the tremendous personal empowerment that comes from knowing and understanding your personality type.
Dealing With Difficult People

Difficult people are anything but in short supply, and the buttons they push create patterns of predictability in our own behaviors. Walk through the challenge of correctly identifying why we react the way we do and learn concrete ways to deal with these challenges so that the repetitive patterns finally cease.
