Team Building

There is no “I” in TEAM.

Team Building is an integral piece to the success of an organization. “Teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage because it is both so powerful and so rare. A high-functioning team can achieve its potential resulting in a more productive organization.” (The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, 2002).  The key successful outcomes depend on the team you build, influence and support. During these uncertain times, those companies and organizations that have demonstrated effective and collaborative team environments have successfully progressed with positive results.

A Different Approach to Team Building

With over 25 years of experience our team building team here at TAP focuses on the client and their main goals.

It was great to have TAP talk about diversity and equity in today’s training. The workshop exposed blind spots and opportunities for us to work for greater equity and greater understanding to assist in creating a welcoming culture that is inclusive to all here at Central Catholic High school.

The diversity, equity, and inclusion workshop was needed to move forward to enlighten administration, faculty, and staff on ways to get along. I would recommend that any university, educational facility, or business use TAP to provide a warm feeling workshop to advance you.

Maurice Lucas
Central Catholic High School Cultural Inclusion Advisor

Today’s workshop on diversity, equity, and inclusion was very informative. The biggest takeaway for me was self-reflection; before you can discuss what’s going on in your school, you have to discuss how I contribute positively or negatively. The interactive portion of the presentation was very helpful.
