In the knowledge economy, “teams” are the principle means by which work gets done and organizational value is created.
Since work-from-home and hybrid work began in March 2020, individuals became more productive, but the outputs of a team -- creative ideas, integrated views, rigorous problem solving -- are waning due to the absence of connection and reduced exposure to new ideas.
We recruited a set of acclaimed professionals (authors, poets, doctors, artisans, athletes, improv comedians) who lead live, interactive 45-minute Experiences with teams. Your team participates actively and engages authentically with each other.
Experiences can include a beautifully designed kit delivered to your employees -- bottles of wine, assortments of cheeses, a family of Japanese daruma dolls -- that expand engagement.
We developed a groundbreaking and modern way to understand commitment, connection and trust in a team. Our reports will prove that your team loved the experience and feels more cohesive, connected and inspired.
Experiences become reference points -- with shared laughter, learning and lessons. Subsequent to our Experiences, teams communicate more easily and authentically with each other.

In 2020, the world faces unprecedented challenges. Health pandemic. Civil unrest. Climate change. Each of these challenges requires people with diverse expertise to work together and find new ways forward. In 2021, companies will face new opportunities and risks. Customer expectations have changed. Old assumptions have become irrelevant. New markets are created. Companies will thrive or fail to the extent their people can share inspiration, can discover new ways of thinking and work together to overcome obstacles.Teams have never been more important or more essential to human progress.
