The big question for every successful team:
how do we keep our egos in check and our eyes on the prize?

At EgoMechanics, Inc. we have worked with a wide variety of teams, from high powered executives to high rolling rock and roll bands.The fall from high performance, or the failure to get there in the first place, is always caused by one thing – team egos jamming team communication. We have a method for dealing directly and effectively with team egos so they don’t blow holes in high performance, a method that keeps working over the long haul and that doesn’t leave you with firing or trading your “ego problems” as your only options.

Specialists in developing high performance teams:

  • What does a high performance team look like?
  • What does an ego-challenged team look like?
  • What is an ego?
  • Are egos always bad for teamworks?
  • Can egos and teamworks thrive together?
  • How does EgoMechanics Inc. solve the problem of egos and teamwork?
