Teamwork & COLLABORATION solution
Turbocharge how your teams collaborate and communicate.
Teamwork is vital to professional work, where assignments are often complex, interdependent, and fast-moving. Yet outstanding collaboration doesn’t happen by accident. To ensure the best thinking, decision-making, coordination, action, and learning together, you’ll need to foster conditions for collaboration excellence. This is even more important when team members work remotely.
Better Still can be your ally. Our Teamwork & Collaboration Solution combines assessment surveys, Better Still Catalysts, digital job-aid tools, our competency model, coaching, and consulting—live and online, and tailored to your requirements.
Call on us to elevate team performance and engagement, or when your team faces collaboration challenges. We work with intact teams, project teams, cross-functional teams, colocated teams, remote teams, and cross-geography teams.

To help you activate the catalysts across your team, we will supply Better Still Tools that your team can use right away, and every day. The tools make collaboration better now—often within minutes—and better still, for the long term.
Here is a sampler of tools that optimize teamwork:
The tools encourage constructive, respectful engagement among team members, and provide a powerful, common platform to think and work together.
We may also recommend and direct your team to select “tool plans,” which combine and sequence Better Still Tools on behalf of specific goals.
Among the currently available tool plans for teams are:
Create Powerful Interactions Together • Build a Platform for Creative Thinking • Make Great Decisions Together • Communicate to Improve Coordination and Action • Recalibrate to Keep Work on Course • Use Feedback to Make Work Better
We can also construct custom tool plans for your team.
Below are sample images of a tool plan.
Turn remote teamwork into excellent teamwork.
Physical distance between colleagues increases the risk of misunderstandings, errors, and diminished work relationships.
With our Teamwork & Collaboration Solution and Better Still Tools, you can create powerful connections among remote workers to ensure that quality work gets done and relationships remain strong.
The solution and tools equip you to fortify and focus the daily interactions and collaboration practices that make a remote team go—meetings, decisions, coordinated actions, and more—as well as how team members think and learn together across distance.
Where to begin? The Better Still Team Assessment is a good place to start.
Prepare new teams to perform well from the outset, and enhance the capabilities of existing teams, with our Better Still Team Assessment & Development Plan for intact teams, project teams, and cross-department teams. The assessment evaluates factors across all seven Better Still Catalysts, and provides team leaders and team contributors with a rich resource to strengthen collaborative performance. The development plan gives team members a practical structure to address team deficiencies and augment strengths, using Better Still Tools.
