Team Development

Cynthia can help you clarify values, communicate clearly, establish trust, heal conflict, and create new processes and patterns of performance.

  • Clarify individual and team values
  • Communicate to support trust and high performance
  • Understand patterns of energy to diminish conflict
  • Enhance empathy for other teams and customer relationships
  • Release and reset patterns of friction that diminish innovation
  • Increase respect and deepen appreciation and acknowledgement among team members.

High performing teams trust each other and love working together. They deliver visible value from the start and are more productive in less time. Great people want to join them and stay with them. And they do all this while having more fun. It’s crucial to set up the team culture with clear intention to support trust and high performance. It’s easy to skip this crucial step and head right to action. Your team culture is forming right now whether you’re actively managing it or not. Take time to future-proof your team and enhance its performance.

Cynthia likes to help teams launch well with a foundation of shared purpose and values, collaboration, decision making and clear accountability. Understand each other’s energetic pattern, be aligned on values and purpose and have a clear vision of what success looks like.

When you get stuck, Cynthia can help you reestablish trust, heal conflict, rebuild communication and creating new processes and patterns of performance. She brings tools, assessments and just-in-time approaches to try out your new approach in real situations.


Cynthia helped us translate a vision of building a collaborative culture into specific values, actions and practices so we could grow from a group of globally distributed employees into an aligned global team. She gathered data, crafted and facilitated a highly engaging offsite where we established relationships, shared values and behaviors and understanding of our whole enterprise. We are now building a foundation of role clarity and accountability inside our organization and with our clients.
Start-up Team
Cynthia has guided us over several years as we developed our idea into a funded, national enterprise. She provided stabilizing support to each of us as we created our co-president roles, helping us to identify how to use our strengths to support the growth of the firm. She helped us have some important conversations to align our vision and support.
Co-Presidents Team
Cynthia brought together a founding professional couple and the emerging generation of family owners to facilitate a handoff from founders to next generation leadership. She supported family dialogue and created an environment for respectful discussion of emotionally charged issues. We held coaching sessions and a retreat which allowed us to acknowledge important transitions and changes. It freed the transitioning generation to embrace their legacy and shift roles and expectations to support the transition.
Design Firm
Cynthia helped us in a crucial transition from founders to professional management. She talked to each of us to gain an understanding how we each were experiencing the situation and designed and facilitated a virtual “offsite” session where we had important discussions which allowed us to see a path forward. She skillfully set an environment of trust and learning in a session across many time zones and cultures. Her use of the 5 Dynamics provided a valuable shared language for continued performance adjustment and role clarification.
