Team Building – Interpersonal Institute

Team Building

Team Building for Couples & Families

Nothing like a quarantine pressure cooker to have all your relational patterns magnified, eh? I have been getting requests for “couples team building” since everyone is working at home. Right now, your team is at home instead of at the office… so why not!?

Is your relationship strained right now, but you don’t want to do therapy?
Having an ally during a crisis is the best feeling in the world. You deserve that.

Sometimes we don’t need therapy: all we need to do is learn the tools that teach us to operate like a team.

American culture teaches us how to be independent and competitive… It does not teach us how to be in relationship. This doesn’t mean that anything is wrong with you. It just means that we could all use some modern and efficacious team building skills.

Erin is an Authentic Team Building expert for businesses- this is a more masculine approach to relationship work, which makes it more accessible to those who are not “broken” but do want to learn to be in relationship in a way that that feels good and works for both people.

Doing “team” is a skill-set. No one is born a master at relationships.

Why spend money on relationship?

  • Make more money over time: Research shows clearly that secure functioning teams make more profit and lose less money to wasted time and mistakes
  • Reduce cortisol and boost oxytocin and serotonin: Get sick less and age more gracefully. It’s all about the cortisol!
  • Have your home feel comforting instead of stressful. Who wants to go home to a tortuous household?
  • Personal growth on steroids: The right kind of relationship development will show you where your hidden blind-spots are and leave you feeling less shame and more comfortable with who you are.

What people say after Family Team Building:

“He/she heard me! They understood me!”

“I know I’m not the problem all the time now. I also know that he/she isn’t the problem either: It’s our dynamic and our lack of knowing how to handle things when we turn into “lizard brains” “

“We have a map to become allies again.”

“I feel hope for what we can create together now.”

“I can communicate my feelings and needs and he/she gets it!”

Team Building for Families is a taster of what is to come from The Interpersonal Institute –
“Interpersonal Intelligence Systems and Skills for Professionals”


During our session I felt cared for and held in a very protected space, my body completely relaxed which is really unusual for me and I think I went into an Alpha state toward the end while our eyes were closed. I felt heard and glad to say aloud what my stumbling blocks are. I felt trust. Upon leaving I felt clear and upbeat and inspired to give myself freedom, not chastise the person I am but be gentle and loving even while I'm not quite there yet."

Team Building: Diagnostics Only

Not ready to commit to the Team Building part, but curious how your relationship might be “measured”?

This is the best way to get your partner’s buy-in on doing the work if they are feeling resistant, skeptical or needing time to develop trust with Erin and the process.
