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

"We were having trouble on our team with accountability and managing conflict. Over the course of our team offsite with Dina, she helped us open up about these things and work our way through them - something we knew we needed to do but didn’t know-how.
 

Bringing realness, insight, appropriate sense of humor, and strong facilitation Dina kept us on point and focused so that we addressed all the higher-level issues, deepened our understanding of ourselves and our team members, and left with a great plan."

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 yrs.

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.
