Diversity : Team Intelligence -- Making the Most of DifferencesWe all know that teams CAN be much smarter together than any of the individual members alone. We also know that teams can descend into forms of "groupthink" that lower their intelligence beyond our ability to tolerate it! What makes the difference?

Adventures in RapportOne thing that former President Clinton and Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler have in common is that they are both rapport experts, and they both trained themselves to be even better by utilizing the skills and insights of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. We offer an experiential training to do the same for your team.
Negotiation and InfluenceA win-win approach to influencing and negotiating, for use in both formal and informal settings, in which we add our expertise on rapport and relationship-building to the basic interest-based negotiations model of Fisher and Uhry at the Harvard Business School.

Personal LeadershipDeepening each team member's sense of ownership and accountability to the success of the whole organization, whatever their role, is the objective of this course.
