CEO and Founder
My name is Bennett Bratt, and I'm the founder of The Team Effectiveness Project LLC and creator of the Team Elements® coaching method. I’m a team-geek. I’m an advocate for bettering all of our experiences within teams. And I’m your cheerleader as you take on the important work of making these improvements.
Teams are unique, wonderful, and complicated. They can be the source of productive work, a supportive and collaborative environment, and even moments of joy. But they can also be places of confusion, destructiveness, and even trauma. I’ve been on both of those types of teams throughout my career. Still, I believe it’s possible to create plenty of peaks while occasionally experiencing the really tough valleys.
I'm so glad you're here and I hope you find immense value, momentum, encouragement, and even inspiration. Let's do this together.
Optimize the impact of your team. Discover the qualities
that hold it back and those that position it for success.
There are often hints that your Team's effectiveness is slipping.
Declining morale - people disengaging from the mission and work of the Team
Rising attrition - losing Team members due to toxic environments or relationships
Customer complaints - internal issues deteriorating the customer experience
If you look deeper inside the Team, you might see:
Less meaningful conversation
People avoid challenging topics
Fewer decisions are being made

Productivity Gains Are Real and Measurable
“Early on we gained a crystal-clear understanding of accountability of ownership, responsibility, and trust of leadership. The productivity gains are real and measurable. People are having more open conversations. We have tackled some of the tougher parts of the work in terms of goals and deliverables. We’ve become more inclusive in our discussions. My only complaint is that we didn’t spend enough time on this. Four months should have been 12 months.”
