There is one common challenge that every business faces no matter its size, years in business, or industry. They must find a balance between the needs of the company and the needs of their greatest asset—the people who work there. Training and team development provide that balance by giving employees the tools they need to do their best work.
Is it possible to make individuals feel valued, heard, and empowered, and still get the work done? Managers and Human Resource professionals are often caught in the middle. They have the tricky job of dealing with human emotions and motivations. At the same time, they’re bound by their company’s systems, processes, and regulations. The resulting conflict can lead to confusion and lackluster results.
And problems in the workplace don’t always involve extreme behavior. Often, it’s dissatisfaction or the more subtle, day-to-day personal interactions that derail a team’s efforts.
Meeting Personal and Company Goals
Tracy’s customizable Team Development programs help bridge the gap between personal development and company goals.
If you’re dealing with any of these things at work, you may need some professional Team Development:
- Low morale and poor performance
- Subpar customer satisfaction
- Lack of communication
- Gossip, backbiting, and infighting
- Pushback on job responsibilities and lack of accountability
- Power struggles
- Unclear chain of command
- Rapid corporate growth with inexperienced managers
- High turnover
“Our organization is implementing changes and moving in a new direction that’s requiring some changes in mindset and culture. There was some nervousness about the process at first, but Tracy took special care to make sure everyone was comfortable and at ease. She is a great presenter and keeps people engaged. Coaching with Tracy Bianco has not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I’ve seen some team members really grow into leaders and take ownership in their roles. We’ve improved our communication style by leaps and bounds and are really coming together as a team.”

Customized Team Development
Tracy Bianco acts as a facilitator and ongoing partner with your business. She’ll start by listening and learning about your company’s dynamics and assessing your unique challenges. Then, applying her knowledge as an educator and experience in the corporate world, she’ll build a program for your team. Together you’ll implement customizable strategies to improve team outcomes.
Through group meetings, smaller break-out sessions, and/or one-on-one coaching support, she’ll get to know what makes your team tick. She’ll address any problem areas and guide the group toward a more cohesive, productive team environment, working toward a common goal.
Much of Tracy’s work with groups involves soft skills. Soft skills can be thought of as “people skills” or “social skills.” They are personal qualities such as communication, teamwork, planning, organizing, and critical thinking. They shape the way people interact in personal and professional relationships. Tracy coaches team members as they work to enhance these skills, improving their own satisfaction along with the dynamics of the team.
With a Team Development strategy designed by Tracy Bianco, you’ll see these results:
- Team members will learn what’s within their control and what isn’t.
- Strengths, talents, and motivations will be uncovered.
- Leadership potential will surface.
- Individuals will better cooperate with and support one another.
- Performance and morale will improve.
- Everyone will communicate more effectively.
- Pride in one’s work and job satisfaction will increase.
