The Dynamics of Group Excellence
Where would you rate your team on a scale from 1-10 on synergy and flow, the result of well-orchestrated collaboration? Achieving excellence in teams and groups is about understanding the drivers of group dynamics. Human thinking. Teams with high collaborative intelligence know how to harness their thinking and put it to good use. The result is levels of synergy and flow, and you can feel it. Do you?
In this high-impact workshop you will:
- learn what is driving many of the dynamics experienced individually and as a team
- build individual and group empathy and develop powerful collaborative skills to close the gaps in communication and understanding
- begin the rewiring of your ‘group think’ to harness everybody’s genius in high functioning collaboration
“I tend to be a skeptic. I’ve attended lots of collaboration/team-building workshops.
But this got my attention like none other. It nails people’s work styles and the group dynamics.
Fast, accurate, predictive, prescriptive and most importantly for me as a COO, actionable! This I recommend for any company.”

I have yet to find a more practical, immediate, and applicable set of tools as those in MindTime’s toolbox. Starting with the Golden Thought, “Everyone has value to bring.” This one short phrase became a part of nearly everything we did whether it was arguing the rules of tag, discussing the Cold War, or talking about the Math curriculum. It offered a pause, a concrete reference point, and then a direction. This really was a navigation system for thinking.
Having MindTime integrated into our curriculum, integrated into our school, and most importantly, integrated into our thinking was essential to our year. I hope these concepts take root, especially in schools, where understanding one’s own thought processes, and how best to work with the diversity of other thinkers, is fundamental to success. The more we can start building these skills in students, the sooner they will be able to adapt and apply them to the world at large.
