King of Prussia, PA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
HRDQ, a leading developer of experiential learning resources for soft-skills training, announces the release of Extraordinary Teams. Based on the popular book Extraordinary Groups: How Ordinary Teams Achieve Amazing Results by Kathleen Ryan and Geoff Bellman, this corporate training materials package offers a comprehensive approach to effective teamwork that includes an online team-building assessment, participant workbook, and half-day team building training workshop.
“It’s no surprise that extraordinary teams have the ability to achieve tangible results,” said co-author Kathleen Ryan. “But what makes them so spectacular is that they also cultivate an exciting, collaborative environment that results in a personal transformation for its team members. Organizations reap the benefits of better team performance and there is significant improvement in skill level, loyalty, and enthusiasm among team members. Without this personal transformation, a team might be considered high-performing, but it cannot achieve the peak experience of an extraordinary team.”
“Most team building exercises focus on group performance,” said Martin Delahoussaye, HRDQ Vice President of Publishing. “Extraordinary Teams goes a step further with an examination of the team member experience. This dual focus is a powerful way to improve the performance of both the individual and the team as a whole.”
Extraordinary Teams starts with an online team assessment that measures the Five Indicators of Extraordinary Teams. The results produce a Team Profile that serves as the basis for the half-day workshop, and a comprehensive participant workbook provides team members with a valuable resource. Available through HRDQ, Extraordinary Teams can be used as a standalone tool or the centerpiece of a team-building training program.
