Improving Communication through the HBDI and Team Building Case Study
A case study exploring the challenge of combining two engineering teams, each led by leaders with different communication styles, into a single cohesive team. By the end of the session, participants had improved communication and interaction, and each created a personal action plan.

Improving Communication through the HBDI and Team Building (pdf)Excerpt: “Challenge: A re-organization and downsizing brought two separate engineering teams together. This group supports multiple products and each engineer supports a particular product. These engineers primarily work independently on their own product and don’t interface with each other on a regular basis. This is a two-in-the box structure whereby two leaders, with very different communication and management styles, are now leading one combined team.

Desired Outcome: The managers wanted to seamlessly bring the two teams together and promote further interaction, knowledge transfer and communication of best practices.”
