It may seem impossible for individuals with different values, strengths, backgrounds, and needs to work together as a cohesive team. But it’s not impossible. Whether you schedule a live face-to-face session (when it’s safe) or an online teambuilding (or team-building) session, you can equip your team with the tools and understanding to work well in healthy and productive ways. Then they can focus on outcomes and producing versus becoming caught up in workplace drama.
What’s at the heart of an effective team and how online teambuilding can help.
The key lies in understanding. Once individuals appreciate the needs and stressors of others, they can interact in ways that promote team cohesion and empathy.
An effective team gets results and meets goals. That’s what you want as a manager. An unproductive team costs you money, energy, and even valuable staffers. Quite often, the most significant barrier to effective teamwork is misunderstanding and interpersonal turmoil. You’ve heard the saying, “people don’t leave companies/organizations; they leave PEOPLE!” So true, right?
A solid online teambuilding session can go a long way toward helping your team learn to interact based on what their counterparts need and value.
Schedule a True Colors Team-building training!!!! This is the all-important first step in equipping your team to understand, appreciate, and learn to celebrate what each person brings to the team dynamic.
Virtual sessions are now available!
In light of the new normal we are all attempting to navigate, I will host True Colors team-building sessions completely online now. The sessions cannot include more than 10 participants at a time.

A True Colors Assessment – so much fun!
During your time with me, you complete a super easy temperament assessment to authenticate your preferences and create a context for navigating workplace teams based on your temperament and preferences.
Remember, the sessions are not designed to “pigeonhole” you into a set of behaviors. Not at all.
The purpose is to share and discover what systems, environments, and processes work best for you and each team member.
Once you clearly understand this valuable information, you can fast-track your interactions toward effectiveness. Sure, you can acquire this knowledge about your colleagues in time. But why wait to get a concise, accurate insight about your coworkers during a couple of well-spent hours?
How much does online team building cost?
My online True Colors team-building sessions last 2 hours – with one break. Each participant needs:
- a computer, laptop, tablet, or device
- audio capabilities (i.e., mic and speakers built-in or available)
- An open mind and willingness to have a blast!
I’m sorry, I am not doing True Colors(tm) workshops now. Stay tuned for future updates.
