“Our JJC team coach started working with my team and myself just after I had taken on the role as team lead. She encountered a group of people that didn’t know each other very well. Decision-making processes were unclear and commitment varied greatly among team members. Her way of working with us helped us allow ourselves to be open and vulnerable and that way really get to know each other. She observed us in action, asked tough questions and facilitated constructive feedback exchange. And, she allowed the agenda to be changed as things evolved, gaining the group’s agreement all along the way. Regularly holding up the mirror, resulted in some authentic soul searching. In the end, we got rid of bad team habits, agreed on clear ground rules and roles, and clarified decision-making processes. As a result, our meetings are now productive, our projects more successful, and most important of all, we all know what we as a team collectively stand for."

Having moved half-way around the world to take on a new and exciting role, I soon realized that the new team I had inherited wasn’t really a team, but instead a handful of silos. Knowing that JJC had done some great work here in the past, I contracted for a team offsite. I had three overall goals: (1) to get some things out in the open, (2) to clarify our strategy, roles and goals moving forward, and (3) to include team building – to have some fun!
The timing was perfect, and the Team Coach JJC proposed was an exquisite fit. We had important conversations, and got oodles of work done, and all in a high-spirited and energetic environment. She balanced the timing so that all of our goals were robustly met, and left us in a very good place to move forward as a real team.
