How does it work?
The process starts with a culture assessment based on leading-edge research. This data gives you a clear picture of your current culture. To bridge the gap to your desired culture, development is embedded in your workflow so it is responsive, sticky, and relevant - and paced appropriately for your team. You get hands-on support throughout the entire process.
The process, called In Parallel, brings a unique combination of project and change management, conflict resolution, team culture improvements and mindfulness, so you can create a collaborative culture over a few months while delivering great work!
We focus on team development over individual performance because of the trend to more collaborative work. This Future of Work podcast and the Deloitte Human Capital Trends report support this focus.
There are six phases in the In Parallel methodology, which you can learn about on this Cardsmith board, and three tracks, which you can read about here. The approach is highly customizable to the challenges and goals of your particular team.
Through the process, your team can become more confident, collaborative, open, driven, energizing, and yes, fun. Expect the rate of high fives in your office to double.
"Business co-founder relationships are like a marriage. Like any relationship that really matters to you, when it goes awry it negatively affects your whole life. Terra was amazing because she created a safe space and the framework to do the work to improve our relationship and accept any outcome. Terra successfully guided us through what we both felt was an intractable problem. She untangled us. The process was short but intense, and provided incredible value. We both ended up better individually, and our working and personal relationship is dramatically improved. Several months after working with Terra, we are still moving forward along the path that she helped us create for ourselves."
