Many of the teams we’ve had the privilege to work with have indicated that their most impactful use of their team time has been in partaking with our Team Days. These days incorporate either Clifton Strengths Finder or the Hybrid Work Styles Quiz, helping teams understand their unique tapestry and the practical things they can do to become their best. These Team Days can be as short as 4 hours and as long as two days. Contact us to learn more – (https://calendly.com/jennbritton)
