Virtual / In-person Delivery

The self-aware team.

A boot camp for intact teams that want to communicate, collaborate and deliver results more consistently.


The TAIS assessment and debrief has formed the bedrock of our work with Olympic teams that have gone on to win Gold


Each team member gets personal insights through the TAIS self-assessment and 1:1 time with a highly skilled coach.

Learning that sticks

Each team member translates self-awareness into an action plan based on feedback from their peers.

There is an “I” in team

For a team to perform well, each person needs to understand what they bring to the team and what they need from the team to be at their best. This program leans into this duality, giving each team member a unique opportunity to learn what the team needs from them, and giving the team as a whole data on its own strengths and weaknesses.


Using practical tools like the Player’s Card shown above, participants give and get feedback from eachother and turn data into specific strategies to drive team performance.

Your team will have the opportunity to:

  • Build a foundation of trust and respect, clarifying misunderstandings about other team members
  • Assess similarities and differences to other teams
  • Determine the unique challenges the team is going to face based on the similarities and differences among team members
  • Define the conditions that create pressure and drain energy for them
  • Leverage team strengths to perform at higher levels
  • Develop strategies to create an environment where productive conflict can drive innovation and growth

The Self-Aware Leader program has had such a positive impact on our business, we've begun using the TAIS as part of our onboarding process for leaders and made it a key part of the way we do team building. We wouldn’t have the strength of leadership we do without Dane, Peggy, Cyndie and the entire team.
