Tesi Workshop

Collaboration is the key word!

Collaboration is a composite skill that emerges from the masterful use of Emotional and Social skills. When a team collaborates, team members take time to explore alternative answers and find a solution that integrates the wisdom of the team.

Team Emotional and Social Intelligence (TESI®) reflects the ability to recognize and manage your own emotions and to recognize and respond effectively to those of others. It includes understanding your social community from the “big picture” point of view and the ability to direct change and to adapt to that change.

Teams are the engines that run businesses, communities and ultimately the whole world. Teams shine when they are capable of expanding their understanding, connection, commitment and courage. When team members enjoy their experience of working together, their creative juices flow and the organization benefits from enhanced productivity.
