“If you give a good idea to a mediocre team, they’ll screw it up. But if you give a mediocre idea to a great team, they’ll make it work.” - Ed Catmull


Our Team Tools programs are intensive courses teaching leaders how to increase performance, well-being and creativity in teams.

Through experiential workshops and action we teach a range of principles, models and actionable tools related to teamwork, team development, personal development, creative collaboration and leadership.

The course can also be used by a team as a team building experience, when team members test tools and approaches on themselves, as part of the learning experience.

We help you:

  • Get the basics of team and project management right
  • Improve team-performance, creativity and well-being
  • Understand how teams grow and mature
  • Build openness and trust among team members.
  • Get teams comfortable with managing complexity and change
  • Implement ways to grow and develop through team learning

  • Learn methods for giving and receiving constructive feedback

If you are to participate in Below The Surface’s course, embrace it and do it with an open mind, then it can truly change the way you work and think. It can be the difference between average performance and outstanding performance in your team.
