The 5 Elements

Integrating Advanced Interpersonal Skills into Personal Development, Project Management and Team Cultures

Are you tired of running into the same bumps that slow down your projects and team workflow? Do the words “efficiency” and “productivity” and “meetings” make you roll your eyes?

When collaboration has lost its magic, its edge and its purpose, it’s time to take back the value that collaboration and teamwork were designed to create.

Some workshops deal with quantitative tools for personal development and project management, we deal with the human factor.

Most projects don't fail due to a lack of tools. They fail because the people on the projects (1) lack the personal skills to deal with unexpected adversity, stress and anxiety (2) can't or don't adequately communicate with each other (3) fail to have a shared definition for "success" (4) fail to consider tailoring the approach for their project and (5) fail to deal with change appropriately.

The 5 Elements is an experience designed for people who are ready to take their skills to a new level and explore a different perspective to human-centric approaches on: 1) personal growth, 2) group interactions, 3) delivery of value, 4) customization, and 5) managing discovery So you can apply these skills and tools to improve the quality of team and project outcomes.

Join us to explore and navigate these concepts. This workshop is a self-paced, online workshop that includes downloadable tools, an ongoing LinkedIn discussion group and professional coaching.
