Team Building

Higher Ground Consulting offers a variety of team building events. Choose Team Building Workshops using ProScan and TeamScan surveys and Team Facilitation Services. We specialize in customization so that your goals and objectives are met while enjoying some fun, laughter and camaraderie. Memorable indoor or outdoor options are available in any season.

We are committed to making the process of planning and executing your team building event as easy as possible. To get the most out of your event HG starts with a needs analysis to ensure our understanding of your desired outcomes and to help set participants’ expectations. Depending on the type of event that you have chosen, we can also meet with the venue(s) to clarify room/facility size/type and set up.

Team Building and Facilitation Services Using ProScan and TeamScan

We use behavioral surveys, such as ProScan, as a baseline for discussion in team building workshops and retreats. With the use of practical examples and interactive exercises, participants gain insight into each others’ natural work and communication styles. We also explore motivators and de-motivators to help cohorts become more cohesive and effective.

Our Approach to Team Development

We customize our approach to suit the specific challenges of your team. This is not an off-the-shelf service. Significant time investments are made by Higher Ground to understand and appreciate the factors of the organizational culture/environment, industry, unique challenges and unspoken frustrations preventing or delaying high performance.

Assessment and Individual Debriefing Sessions

This initial phase gives each participant an opportunity for personal development – which also builds trust with facilitators for this process and sets proper expectations for the workshops. Each person receives personal FeedForward coaching for individual and team perspectives. This phase is not only essential for the participant, but also for Higher Ground to analyze and identify the needs of the team in order to develop customized workshop content.

Team Retreat

The objective of most workshops is for participants to understand the different working and communication styles on the team and to address their specific team challenges. Because our workshops and retreats are customized to address your challenges and opportunities, your outcomes are emphasized and direct outcomes are a part of the end result. Depending on your desired outcomes, the size of your group and other factors, we can design workshops and retreats from a half-day up to several full-day sessions.

Follow Up with Manager and Team

The final phase of this process is a follow-up with the manager or team leader as well as with the team. The manager can expect a one-time coaching session to review the workshop/retreat and review the results and action items. Follow up with the team takes place within two months post workshop. This phase is invaluable for everyone as it reinforces the process and holds everyone directly accountable.
