DOES YOUR TEAM FRUSTRATE (RATHER THAN SUPPORT) YOU? Get your Team Toolkit and start to fix it now.

Better Organizations for a Better World

Business is where we create new and better futures — for our customers, for ourselves, and for the world. But too often our businesses don’t live up to their full potential. They might not fail, but they also never quite hit their stride.

Better Teams for Better Organizations

Leaders often blame individuals (especially ourselves) for company failings, but success depends on teamwork. Too often, our teams lack a shared commitment and leaders are unsure how to bring their teams together.

Better Culture for Better Teams

Team is a verb. Each meeting, process, and conversation is an opportunity to team better. High performance depends on culture — trust, psychological safety, and the ability to disagree and commit. We can help you build the team culture you need. Learn more here.

I highly recommend this book if you’ve struggled to feel heard or understood, and want a roadmap to deepen your connection with the people in your life.

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are about so much more than hiring and compensation. It’s about changing the way teams and individuals interact so we are able to truly hear each other and benefit from the variety of perspectives at the table. Too often in my work I see leaders and organizations neglect this crucial aspect of DEI. In this accessible and readable book, Alex and Bob provide a simple set of tools that will help you and your team align and thrive.
