Building high performing and resilient teams is a science, not an art.

In-Person Experiences

Co-created with the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University

Are you searching for the ultimate team-building experience?  Looking for a way to re-engage your team with a once in a lifetime experience?

Reticle’s award winning Resiliency Challenge takes your team through a series of novel, complex, and challenging exercises over an extended 12-18 hour day.  Our expert facilitators lead your team through team reflections that rapidly build shared awareness of your team dynamics.  We work with you to harvest and relate the insights gained to your authentic work environment with the goal of elevating and shock-proofing your team’s performance.

Is your engineering firm looking to cultivate a stronger, interdisciplinary culture of collaboration?  

Reticle’s ENGEX immerses your engineering team into a complex, dynamic, and challenging setting.  During a two-hour period, your team will navigate a series of critical decisions requiring an interdisciplinary approach and business acumen.  This hyper-realistic exercise connects to 5 UN Sustainable Development Goals and engages your team’s ability to problem-solve, communicate, and make decisions under pressure and in a dynamic environment.  After your 2-hour simulation, our expert facilitators systematically lead you through a reflection to apply the insights from this engaging experience to elevate your team’s collaboration and performance.

Training Workshops

Building Psychological Safety Series

Reticle has developed a practical set of tools for teams that are committed to building psychological safety. Our “BrainTrust for Teams” series provides you with 5 interactive workshops on how you can guide, support, and challenge your team to speak candidly, listen reflectively, and co-construct together.

Whether you are a leader or team member, these workshops will empower you to start building psychological safety today. You’ll recognise opportunities for building psychological safety; gain insights and techniques in how to respond to these hot-spot moments; and learn step-by-step approaches to build psychological safety in systematic and concrete ways.

Delivered in both English & French.

Team Reflection Series (Coming Soon)

You know that high performing and resilient teams reflect regularly on their experience, but you don’t quite feel you’re getting much value out of your team’s current reflections.  Nothing below surface level insights, not everyone is contributing, and discussions focus on judgments rather than understanding.  This 4-part workshop series will teach participants how to facilitate a structured process that allows deep reflection upon authentic or new team experiences.  You’ll walk away with a repeatable process and a set of practical tools that will get you started.

Team Resilience and Simulation

“Resilience” is getting a lot of buzz these days, yet the term is often confused with concepts like robustness and perseverance.  During this 2-hour workshop you’ll crystalize your understanding of this crucial concept and what affects it at personal and team levels.  We’ll then immerse your team into a novel, complex, and challenging virtual simulation to learn through experience.  Leveraging your team’s shared experience, we’ll unpack key behaviours of a resilient team and how you can consistently apply them to elevate and shock-proof your team’s performance.

Team Fundamentals

You’ve just been assigned a new team and want to set everyone up for success, but where do you start?  During this 2-hour workshop, we lead you through a series of interactive exercises that establish the core structural elements of a high performing team and that guide the way your team communicates, makes decisions, solves problems, and manages conflict.  This workshop will engage your team in new ways and provide you with a set of best practices to iteratively elevate your team’s performance.
