Behind the success and failure of teams, lies team culture. But, what exactly is culture? How and why does it contribute to success and failure? Often these seemingly unimportant aspects have the greatest effect on the outcomes of group tasks. Your recognition of them enables you to form, join, and lead teams more effectively. You also come to appreciate the role of ritual and symbols in the daily operation of teams, as well as in situations of change and crisis. Knowledge of the ideas and information in this class enables you to be a better team player and a more effective team leader. Teams are essential to the modern organization, but most never reach their potential. Co-workers miscommunicate, and groups struggle to adapt to changes in the market or their organizations. When teams lack self-awareness about these challenges, performance suffers. Based on years of team culture research and consulting experience, we will help you understand the problems that hurt productivity, and gives you tools for creating positive change. We will guide you through creating the ground rules and structure needed to set your team up for success.

As a management consulting firm thinkCOMPASS specializes in advising communities on how best to adopt a more proactive approach towards economic development and investment attraction. Through research and analyses we provide market and sector intelligence and discuss development trends that communities can leverage to attract their fair share of new investment while helping to retain and expand those businesses that they already have. thinkCOMPASS approaches economic development training with the objective of educating participants on the importance of activity in municipalities, constituencies, and regions rather than awaiting aids and funding to propel development.
This encompasses added micro-economic actions at the local level to complement macro-economic measures at the national level. Drawing from our years of experience in the international markets, and managing foreign investors, our approach is to closely examine communities to identify their strengths, weaknesses opportunities and threats (SWOT) from the perspective of the potential investor. Using this information, we develop the community’s unique value proposition (UVP). We then advise communities on how they can best leverage their UVP to strategically position themselves to successfully compete for investment and gain footholds in new sectors and markets.

Based on the assessment and delivery format, we select the strongest expert to engage in your training program.
