About Teri

I build winning teams that produce results. I help leaders bring out the best performance in each member of their team, and identify successors.

I've helped hundreds of clients get results like this: - Greater confidence in their leadership ability and executive presence - Higher engagement among team members, leading to better retention - Improved relationships with boss and reports - The right people in the right roles, leading to increased sales figures and high energy performers

I learned that my sweet spot is creating community quickly among geographically and ethnically diverse teams. Through using techniques like Improv and role play, these groups have fun, build trust quickly and let their guard down, which leads to cementing tight relationships that collaborate well. In the last two years, I've facilitated six international teams that are interdependent and high functioning. I love working with people from varied cultures and helping them appreciate the strength in that diversity.
