The workshop lets teams form a game plan, solidify agreements and accelerate communication.

Phase 3: Coaching

The coach guides the team through the storming period and the team eventually norms and performs at high levels.

Teams learn to acknowledge success and celebrate their achievements in reaching an extraordinary goal.
