What are some of the benefits of teams?

Working in a team like this is amazing. We can accomplish so much more together than each one of us could have achieved on their own.

We get so much more satisfaction from learning from one another and achieving well together rather than just seeking to stoke individual egos.

Is such a team even possible?

Yes. Watch us at work in Novavi, and you’ll see that’s how we work. We also regularly see our clients thrive and witness groups morph into such teams. That’s part of our purpose: inspiring other teams to share in the joy of excellence through service.

What if we’re not quite there yet?

What if your current “team” isn’t quite living up to this definition just yet? Not to worry. You can always reset how you work with each other through a chartering experience, and then keep improving over time.

At Novavi, we’ve also started our work with a chartering experience, and every three months or so we’re renewing our chartering.
