What would you do?


A leader comes to you and asks you to facilitate a team meeting because she is struggling.  The team isn't meeting goals and team members are openly unhappy with the leader and each other. She wants you to come facilitate a one day session and "fix" the situation.


You aren't sure where to begin.  No one is sure of the root cause of the problem, let alone how to go about resolving it.  With only a few weeks to prepare, and only one day with the team, you want to help, but fear you may make things worse.


Then, you remember you can use the Better Teams Model and Assessment as a framework.  You get the team to assess themselves and this report gives you insight into the team's root issues.  Now you are ready choose the right agenda template and plug in the most useful team activities for the team off-site.  You have a solid plan now -  you are confident and excited about helping this team improve performance AND become happier!

"When I first heard about TCA, I began to wonder, do I really need something else to add to my toolkit? I am already certified in several instruments and have extensive experience. I then began to think about my client base, which includes the non-profit sector.
I am very glad that I joined TCA. It has provided several tools to add to my toolkit. I love the modules. There is no deadline or pressure to complete them right away so you can take your time. The mastermind group was wonderful! Thank you Leigh Ann for a product that is affordable and great to use."

Deborah Covin Wilson, Principal,
Covin Wilson Associates

"I'm so glad I went through TCA because it provided me with new tools and information to support teams. 
Leigh Ann has laid out TCA in a logical, easy to understand format and is generous in sharing her knowledge, practical tips and tools. The best part of TCA is the Mastermind calls on which I got to meet fellow students and get input on the current challenges in my work. I'd highly recommend TCA to anyone who is or aspires to support teams."

Gayle Ely, MBA, CPC, ELI-MP, Executive Coach & Leadership Development Specialist, Total Life Leadership

Team Consultant Academy did not disappoint. Leigh Ann is truly a service-orientated, passion-driven leader sharing her magic with the world."

Mary Bourg Chavin, Founder/President, Etiquette Center of the South, LLC

"As an LD/OD consultant I have always looked for an assessment that spoke to teams and their leaders about the impact of trust on their success. Trust is the 'wrapper' of the Better Teams Assessment model and provides real time speak without the buzzwords to help each team member leverage themselves and each other more productively. The Better Teams Model helps teams and their leaders gain real alignment on what they need from each other by encouraging conversation about what may be getting in the way of a trusting working environment. Thank you Leigh Ann for the experience through TCA and the opportunity to meet other consultants just like me trying to provide even more to their clients every day."

Beverly Winkler, President, Inspire Leadership Now, LLC

"We wrapped the Better Teams Assessment debrief last night with rave reviews! All players expressed their satisfaction with the outcome. The Better Teams report went a long way toward encouraging them to go deeper with vulnerability and authenticity. I really love how the report always inspires that."
