Thriving Teams 


Thriving Teams Institute provides team and organizational learning and development solutions that allow your individuals, teams, and organization to be at their best.  

We tackle this by applying our Vision First, Culture Always framework to address four critical components of team and organizational thriving: strategy, people, learning, and environment.  


Creating secure environments where all employees and teams can thrive requires a delicate balance between strategy, people, and learning.  

Learn how to navigate those tensions with our research-based and practical methods.

Our Approach

We view organizations as systems, and we take a holistic approach to understanding the systems our clients work in and the patterns of behavior it generates. We work with leaders of teams, teams, and organizations to tackle the challenges they face and explore the areas where they are surviving not thriving. 

The challenges our clients experience often present themselves as performance, process, or people issues, but we spend the first part of our engagement discovering the root causes behind those issues through narrative and design-based 360’s. Understanding your unique context is critical to the success of our engagements. 

Next, we co-design solutions based on our insights from the 360’s. The solutions focus on creating secure and learning-focused environments where individuals and teams can thrive, and organizations can achieve excellence. Our solutions may include coaching (individual and team), custom-designed learning experiences, strategic learning with experts, culture redesign, change initiatives, etc.
