What Extraordinary
Potential will We Unlock?

Team Development

Healthy, high-functioning teams are the lifeblood of your organization.

Even at the highest level, even with the best and brightest of teams, any number of challenges can arise. In fact, they’re very common. But with the right tools and tactics, they’re also correctable.

Development

I’ll help you uncover the roadblocks, create a clear plan of action, and take your team to a whole new level.
LET'S
  • Create a strong sense of collective purpose and align on goals and values

  • Develop deep trust where conversations are open and honest, differences are valued, and productive conflict is possible

  • Build a psychologically safe team culture that fosters commitment, accountability, innovation, and team learning to stay ahead of the curve

  • Solve difficult dynamics and issues

  • Strategically engage with stakeholders to clarify needs and expectations and deliver strong value

  • Grow team resilience and the capability to reimagine what’s possible

  • Improve overall business performance and bottom-line results

"Working with Dina was a highlight of 2021. She worked efficiently with me and my leadership team to strengthen our core goals and align on our mission and values. Dina helped us improve our communication and output, which enabled us to provide better results to our customers, drive higher growth and produce our lowest churn on record. I highly recommend working with Dina if you get the opportunity - and she is also a ton of fun!"

How it works:

Your team and its context are unique. The blueprint for your program is custom-created to inspire and elevate your team. That’s why my approach starts with careful inquiry.

 

I’ll focus on understanding your team’s current patterns, your strengths and areas of opportunity, and clarifying your specific needs and goals. If needed, I may also employ a variety of proven assessment methodologies to help us uncover the highest impact opportunities.

 

Based on your team’s needs and desired outcomes, I’ll recommend, design, and deliver a program that empowers your team to maximize its growth and performance as a unit—and enjoy the process along the way.

Set the bar higher.

I’m often contacted for team coaching when there’s a crisis or emerging challenge that needs immediate attention.

 

Team coaching shouldn't be reserved for urgent situations. It’s also part of a proactive development strategy—supporting healthy, resilient, adaptable teams in unlocking their greatest potential and reaching new heights.

"Our work with Dina was an incredibly enlightening and rewarding experience for us all.  We came to better understand the strengths and opportunities within ourselves, but also as an overall team, in a judgement-free and upbeat vs. heavy-handed way.  And most importantly, the sessions created moments to better understand and connect with each other on a more personal level, which we’ve been deprived of over the past 1.5 years."

The Next Steps:

We get started by setting up a 30-45 minute complimentary consultation to discuss your team and goals.

 

With a better understanding of your needs, I'll recommend and scope various possibilities to help your team take it to the next level of cohesion and performance.
