In today’s fast-paced global economy, working together is a challenge. Companies ask teams to do more with less and still remain competitive and profitable. Teams are made up of people from all over the world with different cultures, paradigms, and norms. Compounding this are the different generational and personality styles of doing business. Different isn’t bad, but it does require intentional effort to bring cohesion, coordination, and results.
At Team Synergy we recognize the challenge and provide a wide variety of solutions designed to meet your unique goals. It starts with a conversation where we help you identify your team’s specific challenges and team-development goals. From there we tailor a fun, interactive program to address your goals and create a synergized team.
At Team Synergy we’re passionate about helping your team members COME TOGETHER so they ACCOMPLISH MORE. Through our inspiring programs, your team members will see the often abstract concepts of teamwork and leadership play out in front of their eyes. As they go through a program, our facilitators will lead group discussions to help them discover lessons with real-world application. This sequential process encourages the development of a synergized team.
We operate all our programs with what we call the “Up to You” philosophy. This philosophy empowers all your team members to personally decide their level of participation throughout the experience. Our staff is trained to encourage – but never coerce – participation. While we intentionally challenge your members to step outside their comfort zones, just how far they step is up to them.

The Team Synergy facilitators did a great job putting everyone at ease. The tasks definitely placed the team members outside of their comfort zones. Due to the awesome facilitation, everyone felt comfortable participating. We enjoyed the variety of activities that required effective communication and cooperation. It was the exact type of team building event we needed. I'll definitely pass your information on to other managers within our company.
[Team Synergy is] clearly qualified to facilitate and execute exercises to meet your objectives. The program was exactly what we were looking for with team building - a really nice flow.
To start our day, the food [from 5.ATE Cafe] was wonderful. [Team Synergy's facilitators] were awesome. They had great attitudes and worked with our group wonderfully. They were motivational and upbeat. Everyone returned to the office feeling stronger and more accomplished than before the program. We now have a shared experience that brings us closer together.
Excellent venue to host a team-building event and meeting. Very flexible and able to accommodate our group. Food from the [5.ATE] cafe was excellent as well.
What went down during the program last Saturday defies description! How could we even thank you enough for your patience and leadership...Not only will I recommend your team without reservation to anyone who asks, but we will build into our yearly internship calendar a trip with your team.
We liked the variety of activities, doable for everyone in the group. They did a great job instructing the group. We liked that they remembered individuals' names and called people by their names! We had a wonderful overall experience and would recommend it any time!
