Intro Teamwork Challenge (10-20 minutes) We jump right into the program with a thought-provoking activity that focuses on the team’s current interactions. This helps the group see what is going on, how it impacts the team, and how important it is to address those issues.
The Accountability Compass (20-30 minutes) We lead an interactive conversation about the key ingredients of accountability and how different team members have a stronger affinity for some of those elements.
