Custom Solutions for Your Team

Whether you are an individual team member or part of an ad hoc or long-term team, we offer curriculum and services to help you improve your performance.

What makes HET® different is that it is an organizational change system that is based on both process improvement and human development. HET is grounded in social science. Building on proven practices from the world of management consulting, sociology, human psychology, and our own consulting work with hundreds of teams, we can help you learn how to work as a Highly Effective Team®.

HET supports adoption of desired behaviors by offering sensible principles, streamlined tools, and memorable mantras that promote memory retention and ease of use. You can apply HET to any scale or body of work from strategy to project to meeting. We emphasize memorable visuals and mantras based on the belief that if you can remember something, then you can communicate it, find, it, use it, and implement it.

We deliver HET through four services: Training, Self Study, Coaching, and Consulting.


Our Introduction to HET Training is for anyone who sponsors or works on projects (which are defined as having time-bound deliverables). It is available as a three-day in-person workshop or a live virtual training program scheduled over one or two weeks, to fit your needs.

This training introduces streamlined and simplified principles and practices of project management, team building, and meeting facilitation. You will practice tools you can deploy with your teams to achieve clarity, take collective action, and succeed.

This introductory training curriculum is for two of three audiences who use HET: HET for Project Teams and HET for All.

  • In part 1, HET for Project Teams, attendees learn about technical skills of project planning and implementation and the interpersonal skills needed for effective teamwork.
  • In Part 2, HET for All, attendees learn methods and tools for driving accountability, engaging constructively, and facilitating great meetings.

Attending the full workshop with your team is a professional development opportunity and contributes to team cohesion and collaboration. Colleagues who do not work on projects will benefit from attending Part 2: HET for All.
