Leadership teams face an increased need for cross-functional collaboration and unprecedented demand for faster decision-making. Communication being at the core of a leadership team’s productivity, the Team Conversational Norms Diagnostic™ Tool is designed to help teams self-diagnose the productivity of their conversational habits. With proper facilitation, this unique diagnostic tool allows teams to reflect on their conversational habits and patterns as a first step to identifying improvements and solidifying strengths. Peeler earned her certification in facilitating the tool at the end of last year and has already begun using it in her teambuilding work, with excellent outcomes.

As principal of Peeler Associates, Peeler provides executive coaching, team building, organizational development, leadership training, nonprofit leadership development, keynote speaking and career coaching services.

“I am excited to offer the Team Conversational Norms Diagnostic™ Tool to our clients. This tool allows participants to take time to consider whether they are talking about things that matter and emphasizes the importance – and value – of positive team communication,” said Peeler.
