The Art of Team Building

In essence, the Art of Team Building is about bringing people together. It is about helping people to realize that “we have far more things in common with each other than things that divide us”.

Truthfully speaking, it is both an art form and a science and there are definitely some very particular strategies and important “orders of operation” that typically help groups to become more connected, higher functioning Teams.

By understanding these strategies intimately as a Facilitator, you can begin to assemble a whole host of tools to help support people develop both as individuals and as a wider collective team or community.

The goal of this program is not simply to teach participants a series of really interesting new activities, but to help them learn about what is actually happening “under the hood” of group development so that they can become more competent and confident “conductors” of experiences and intentional “engineers” of their own workshops and programming.

Our very unique approach to teaching and training utilizes hands-on active learning, captivating storytelling and innovative activities that will help you to explore these very sought after professional skills “from the inside out”.

Our Trainers specialize in supporting groups to gracefully step beyond their comfort zones and to learn how to greet challenges as opportunities.  We assist people in continually deepening their emotional intelligence as they find the courage to overcome obstacles and their own perceived limitations in a safe and supportive environment.

Our transformative approach  equips people to establish a more comfortable practice of personal reflection and to celebrate all successes both big and small in a genuine way.

We are constantly told by our participants how unusual and refreshingly different our programs are and how they re-define the words “professional development!”

  • Leaders of the Day certainly made an impression at Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village Team Leader conference! We were looking for someone who could equip our international team leaders with the tools to bring a group of strangers together in a developing world setting and form them into a team that would build a house.

  • Tony and his team were definitely up for the task. Based on our initial conversations they put together an energetic and engaging workshop that received rave reviews from everyone involved. We are looking forward to a repeat performance at our upcoming conference this year. Thanks Tony and Leaders of the Day for showing what excellence in facilitation is all about. Rick Tait, Senior Director, Habitat for Humanity Canada, Global Village Program
