You don’t need a more effective strategy. You need more engaged people.
High performing teams thrive in an atmosphere of growth, trust and connection.
Most people working on teams don’t feel safe to voice a contrary opinion, or admit there is something they don’t know. Instead, every day, they withhold a little more of themselves and the result is a team operating far below their capabilities. Tactics and techniques compose only a small part of team success. More important are the interpersonal dynamics within the team, fostering an atmosphere where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.
We start by using a short Jungian proprietary assessment to build trust with each team member, helping them identify their individual style and temperament. Then through highly interactive games and exercises we build awareness, understanding and camaraderie. Once we have established this environment of trust the team turns its attention to designing a culture that promotes its growth and well-being. A team that is empowered to create its own culture will become resilient and high performing.
Dov Pollack gets results because he is masterful at building trust. He doesn’t have one single response that he applies to every issue, but rather brings a holistic approach to the table that takes into consideration the individuals, their organizational dynamics, and their environment – all of the variables at hand – to come up with THE solution. The improvements in performance achieved by individuals equated to higher quantity and quality of communication and trust. We came out of the process with a much stronger team.

When I stepped into the role of CEO I realized that I had the opportunity to build the type of workplace culture that reflected my values. As a coach Dov became my partner, he conducted a 360 with my leadership team to help provide me honest feedback about what my team needed from me. Dov helped me articulate my leadership values, find the stories from my life that best illustrated where these values originated, and helped me craft my communications around them.

Being coached by Dov has been truly transformative, and I don’t say that lightly. He listened thoughtfully and challenged me to act, but never offered advice. I now feel empowered to take time to care for myself and “give myself permission” to not be in control of everything. I am now more relaxed and present at home and feel I am consistently able to perform to a higher leadership level at work. I end of most days feeling accomplished.
