Insights Discovery

In today’s climate of global disruption, home working and self-isolation, it’s more important than ever to make sure teams are connected. The transition to working fully remotely can be difficult for teams as they adjust to their new methods of communicating, sharing and collaborating, but our Working in a Virtual Team session will jumpstart your virtual teams and help them respond to today’s very real challenges.

The Working in a Virtual Team session is designed to help team members explore team communication and preferences so they can develop better working relationships and understand more about their collective strengths and focus areas. Building on the Insights Discovery system for understanding self and others, they’ll learn how their individual personal preferences affect the team dynamics and explore their overall effectiveness as a team. This helps your teams be as effective as possible in their virtual environment so they can support your business during this time of change.
