“I hired Riverene to help me develop an approach to improving our team cohesion. The team was multi-cultural, multi-national, and each member was responsible for autonomous areas. The problem was that my team was not working well together amidst a very challenging environment and tough to meet deadlines and goals. Riverene applied the Myers-Briggs concepts by performing assessments on each member of my team. Riverene has a unique way of bringing life to the Myers-Briggs concepts and making them applicable to our current situation and challenges. Dov Pollack’s delivery of the material, facilitation of the team building exercise, and de-brief were ALL excellent. A number of team members came to me in the days since the training and are using the MBTI vocabulary and specifically called out the training that Riverene provided as useful and as an effective way for us to get to know one another better and be more open and honest in our relationships at work. It has been immensely helpful! I would recommend Riverene and Dov unconditionally.”
