About this program suite

Communicate: On Thin Ice

  • Companies that select this program want to participant in intelligent team building. They want to engage their leaders and teams around the importance of communication, planning, shared goals, cross stakeholder alignment, the ability for teams to recognize inefficiencies in strategy and the ability to adapt and align leaders and teams.
  • Contemporary teams face increasingly difficult challenges and require extra cohesion to function positively for corporate success. Diverse international teams have become the norm, creating virtual communities that must span across the globe.
  • It will be important for the organization of the future to take precautions to prevent team fissure and avoid the dangers of being stuck ‘on thin ice’.  Good teams don’t happen by chance.

MEMORABLE THEME

Antarctica (On Thin ICE)

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH BASED ON

When Antarctic and NASA researchers studied decades of diary entries, they discovered that communication and alignment stood out more than every other issue combined. Through highlighting the issues that teams often face while companies attempt to keep pace with rapid technological and organizational change, it is possible to be better prepared for the impact. Leaders need to understand the unique dynamics of culture and teams. Our I.C.E. model assists with identifying and addressing challenge areas effectively to ensure team engagement, productivity, and success.
