Consistently High Achieving Team (CHAT™)

Turn any group into a high achieving team with extreme speed.

Many teams in the workplace are really “committees” because a true team wins and fights challenges together. A committee wins or loses separately.

Even world-class executive teams must regularly re-establish trust, build better relationships, improve communication, and re-align to contribute more powerfully to the organization’s bottom line.

In fact, all teams, old and new, must occasionally take stock to uncover and resolve existing problems in order to achieve peak performance, even the healthiest, most efficient corporate teams.

Steven Gaffney’s popular program is designed to dramatically improve the specific group dynamics of any team to achieve peak performance.


Key takeaways from this powerful process include how to:

  • Eliminate harmful silos and work together as a true team
  • Develop a healthy pattern of debate in team meetings
  • Identify and resolve problems holding the team back from their full potential
  • Create full team buy-in and accountability
  • Make critical decisions as a team, without the need to re-litigate
  • Increase the speed of analysis, communication, and decision-making within the team
  • Address small issues in the group before they become major problems
  • Eliminate leadership blind spots that result when participants don’t challenge one another
  • Implement the 10 ground rules of a consistently high-performing leadership team

No matter how long your team has been together, we will re-focus and re-align the group for a fresh start and make any group into a Consistently High Achieving Team.

Honest Communication and Resolve Issues with Anyone
9 Steps Formula that Always Works
According to research, 80% of workplace problems are due to the lack of open honest conversations. Because the biggest problem is not what people say, it is what they don’t say. So getting the unsaid said and resolving the challenges in a timely and quick matter is critical to the organization’s consistent success.

Learn a 9 step formula to resolve any issue with anyone and be able to:

Convey crystal-clear messages to prevent misunderstandings
Avoid repetitive, non-productive, ineffective conversations
Address and resolve small issues before they become much larger problems
“Get the unsaid said” and have honest, effective conversations on a daily basis—with anyone
Share difficult messages and issues so they are resolved

Prevent Misunderstandings and Assumptions

Gaffney teaches his legendary application of the “Notice vs. Imagine” technique. Based on more than a decade of research, the failure to distinguish what is “noticed” (the facts of the situation) from what is “imagined” (opinions, thoughts, evaluations, and conclusions) is often one of the most harmful things for an organization’s bottom line.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Improve Relationships, Build Trust, and Make Work and Life Easier

You will be challenged to:

  • Open up and engage in discussions and exercises in order to better your personal and workplace environments
  • Distinguish between the facts and your opinions so you act only on the truths of a situation rather than your perceptions
When you act on facts and get the unsaid said, relationships improve, trust is reinforced, and the bottom line is positively impacted.

Discover how to have honest communication and resolve issues with anyone.

Research shows that as much as 70% of changes attempted within an organization fail to achieve their objectives.
