Why Choose Epic Teams?

  • We do it in groups. The most effective form of behavior change happens in groups. 

  • We do it live and in-person. The human brain learns best with high-quality, experiential interaction. 

  • We make it personal. The most impactful development experience is highly personalized, using a variety of data sources to understand temperament, thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. 

  • We are full-stack people developers. Developing the leaders of tomorrow requires more than just coaching experience. We bring real-world expertise as business leaders and social scientists to fully activate the potential of your people.  

  • We seek system-wide improvements. We are not about incremental impact at the individual level. We help you experience significant company-wide improvements by focusing on several leaders at once. 

  • We transfer skills efficiently - and enjoyably. We believe the best trainings don't feel like trainings. Our leaders love their sessions and experience serious FOMO in the event that they have to miss one. 

  • We impart critical social tools needed to use management tech tools well. A tech platform does not solve your management problems - nor does it effectively teach management skills. That said, social skills + tech tools = rockstar leaders. 

  • We are metrics-based. As the saying goes, what gets measured gets managed. We administer pre-, mid-, and post-assessments to measure the reactions, learnings, behavior changes, and business impacts of the program.

  • We are research-based. Our content is continually evolving to distill the latest insights in human and team development, as well as to focus on the issues that matter most in today’s changing workplace. 

  • We are Bay Area-based. We love the Bay, know the Bay, and serve the Bay's most forward-thinking companies.

What Clients Say:

Epic Teams has been the biggest innovation in leadership development for me. During my tenure as Director of 72U at 72andSunny, I’ve led 12 multidisciplinary creative teams. Over this time, I’ve explored many different techniques to help teams grow creatively and professionally. The skills we learned have been a total game-changer. I am seeing huge improvements in the way we communicate and create together. I cannot recommend this training enough to anyone who leads and works within teams.
