The Prelude Suite™ empowers virtual team performance by accelerating trust.
A fast, fun, safe way for virtual team members to grow from “Me” to “We”.
THREE SIMPLE STEPS
A Certified Facilitator guides teams through a dynamic compact learning experience. This involves Self-Assessment, Self-Expression, Co-Creation, and Dialogue. As teammates become attuned to each other, cognitively and emotionally, trust naturally grows.
Ideal for: Project Managers, Team Leads, Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, Facilitators, Consultants, Trainers, & Online Instructors
STEP 1: TUNE UP
Teams complete a unique self-assessment called iStar™. This generates a holistic positive self-portrait and a digital badge. Participants share their iStar Stories™ to build new awareness and understanding of their team’s diversity and complementary strengths.
STEP 2: PRACTICE
Teams co-create personal symbols of excellence. These digital artifacts have aspirational value throughout the team’s life and beyond. Together, teams practice key soft skills essential to team effectiveness.
STEP 3. BRIDGE
The Team Alignment Plan™ enables teammates to quickly, easily bridge their lessons learned and soft skills identified with their practical work vis-à-vis goals, tasks, and deliverables. Leads to robust Team Charter.

WHY THIS MATTERS
Lack of Practice Time: 80% of virtual teams receive no training time
A band prepares for a major concert by practicing. Band members tune-in and tune-up to achieve a harmonious sound together. They know their best performance depends on it. Professional sports teams also practice for peak performance. Like their musical and athletic counterparts, Project Teams are expected to perform optimally on demand as well.
Hard Costs: 80% of employees are in conflict with other teams and departments
In the U.S.A. alone $359 billion in paid hours are spent by employees in conflict. That’s about 3 hours weekly per employee. The main cause is lack of team soft skills practice prior to the Storming Stage. This is not just an intra-team challenge. Disharmony amplifies.
Time: Three 2 hour modules. Flexible scheduling depending on team size
Tech: High speed Internet connection, video, headphones & mic. Works across devices (phone screen too small) and platforms (Lync, Hangouts, Skype, WebEx, Zoom, etc.)
