"We recently had our mid-year off-site...This year I hired a facilitator...Kristi Royse was the consultant and I was extremely pleased with her style and content, as were my producers. I found many benefits, with the main one being she was in charge and I simply participated. Additionally, she didn't let anyone get away with giving a b.s. answer or not participating...it was nice to have someone else disciplining. For your next meeting, you might seriously consider KLR Consulting."
John J. Tallarida, Senior Vice President

Great business teams are not necessarily top management teams.
They can be found in the boardroom, or on the shop floor. But, when a top executive team is great, it has the authority and positional charisma to build authentic relationships. These relationships then set in motion a chain reaction that can transform the performance of teams throughout the organization and prepare every team to excel.
According to Howard M. Guttman, building authentic relationships begins with each team leader posing tough questions in five key areas:
For any organization to raise its level of performance every team, on every level, must be a great team. That is to say; it must be aligned, or in sync, in five key areas listed above. Fear of change and widespread initiative fatigue make the status quo very seductive. But status quo will not work for your team or your organization.
