Team Development Services (TDS) is a business consulting firm that works directly with Boards of Directors/Trustees and Executive Teams in developing and improving the teamwork of the board or team itself.
Boards and executive teams have much to accomplish during their terms. The temptation is to jump right into the task at hand. Within a few months, cracks in the board or team can emerge, work slows down, and leaders may begin to wonder if anything positive will be accomplished.
TDS believes in first paying attention to building a strong foundation of teamwork on the Board of Directors/Trustees, or Executive Team. With teamwork at the highest level of the organization, not only does strategic planning become more meaningful, but the entire organization starts to become more cohesive and focused on accomplishing everything it sets out to do.
“Teamwork is not a virtue, it is a choice — and a strategic one.”— Patrick Lencioni
