Nearly all work happens in teams.

Yet so few companies equip their teams for extraordinary outcomes.

The 4 Stages of Team Development

The 4 Stages of Team Development

High performing teams are not born. 

They are developed with intention and commitment. 

Our Team Accelerator Program helps teams adopt the most effective techniques for achieving goals and continuously learning as a unit, as well as how to: 

  • create a culture of healthy accountability,
  • foster positivity and productivity
  • diagnose and course-correct team problems
  • and foster personal growth that aligns with the needs of the team.

What do teams learn?

Our six-month experience is based on the following 3 principles.

#1: Establish and maintain commitments

Epic Teams establish clear commitments with each other to own their performance, engagement, and growth.

#2: Coach for results and continuous improvement

Epic Teams use highly effective coaching and team consultation practices for uncovering the most effective solutions to the team’s most entrenched problems.

#3 Cultivate engagement with the work

Epic Teams build trust, connection, and a healthy respect for each other’s strengths and skills. They also have a shared language for diagnosing “team saboteurs” and co-create norms of engagement for continued progress.
