Workshop based upon Team Dimensions Profile. Team membership starts with "I". The more you know about yourself this "I" the more effective you can be as a team member. Once you explore and reflect upon your "I" you know what motivates you and can continue to feel autonomous and respected while producing amazing work. The goal is to explore behaviors that you exhibit and facilitate you to be aware (mindful) of how you are acting in that moment. Therefore making you a better team member. Basically the goal is all about YOU. making myself an effective team member, one who is dedicated to being a team member as opposed to making myself desirable for membership within the team.
