then you already know the value of having a variety of proven, easy-to-use team tools.

You know that teams are complex and that there is no "cookie-cutter" solution that is perfect for all teams.  You also know how time consuming it is to prepare for and develop team building sessions that make a sustainable difference.

You are worth the investment!

Join TCA's August Cohort

Even though the reasons to enhance your tool kit are
 obvious, the path to doing it successfully is anything but.


What would you do?


A leader comes to you and asks you to facilitate a team meeting because she is struggling.  The team isn't meeting goals and team members are openly unhappy with the leader and each other. She wants you to come facilitate a one day session and "fix" the situation.


You aren't sure where to begin.  No one is sure of the root cause of the problem, let alone how to go about resolving it.  With only a few weeks to prepare, and only one day with the team, you want to help, but fear you may make things worse.


Then, you remember you can use the Better Teams Model and Assessment as a framework.  You get the team to assess themselves and this report gives you insight into the team's root issues.  Now you are ready choose the right agenda template and plug in the most useful team activities for the team off-site.  You have a solid plan now -  you are confident and excited about helping this team improve performance AND become happier!

I invite you to join a global community of coaches and facilitators who deeply care about helping teams thrive.

Team Consulting Academy is a compilation of all MY BEST TEAM BUILDING tools.  I've been collecting, building and honing my "team kit" for 20 years... and now I want to share it with you.

A mentor once told me, "One of the fastest ways to get ahead is to take advantage of proven tools and methods. Learn from others so you don't have to reinvent the wheel."

Take advantage of my experience and proven products by joining Team Consultant Academy.

Team Consultant Academy is a 5-week online program with a variety of ways to interact with me and other learners throughout and beyond the 5 weeks. You have lifetime access to the materials, so you can go at a pace that works for you.

Everything in TCA can be applied online - in fact we have created some excellent slides and activities to modify them for a virtual session.  All of this in included.

You'll get access to the Course Planner and the Private Facebook Group as soon as you join, then I'll release one module per week.

Three 90-minute Mastermind Calls will be scheduled every 3-4 weeks so you'll have direct access to me and other brilliant team facilitators from around the globe. On these calls we discuss all types of challenges and solutions - they are super charged!

I only open Team Consultant Academy 2-3 times a year, so join our January 2021 cohort and use these tools to boost your team building business all year!

I'm so glad I went through TCA because it provided me with new tools and information to support teams. 
Leigh Ann has laid out TCA in a logical, easy to understand format and is generous in sharing her knowledge, practical tips and tools. The best part of TCA is the Mastermind calls on which I got to meet fellow students and get input on the current challenges in my work. I'd highly recommend TCA to anyone who is or aspires to support teams.

When I first heard about TCA, I began to wonder, do I really need something else to add to my toolkit? I am already certified in several instruments and have extensive experience. I then began to think about my client base, which includes the non-profit sector.
I am very glad that I joined TCA. It has provided several tools to add to my toolkit. I love the modules. There is no deadline or pressure to complete them right away so you can take your time. The mastermind group was wonderful!
I definitely have plans to use the materials from TCA with clients in 2020. Thank you Leigh Ann for a product that is affordable and great to use.

As an LD/OD consultant I have always looked for an assessment that spoke to teams and their leaders about the impact of trust on their success. Trust is the 'wrapper' of the Better Teams Assessment model and provides real time speak without the buzzwords to help each team member leverage themselves and each other more productively. The Better Teams Model helps teams and their leaders gain real alignment on what they need from each other by encouraging conversation about what may be getting in the way of a trusting working environment.
Thank you Leigh Ann for the experience through TCA and the opportunity to meet other consultants just like me trying to provide even more to their clients every day.

Beverly Winkler, President, Inspire Leadership Now, LLC

My 5 top reasons for recommending this program:

  1. TCA provides easily accessible tools, handouts, e-books and programs that can be utilized immediately.
  2. I received quick, personal responses from Leigh Ann before, during and after the program.
  3. True collaborations with other professionals willing to share ideas and advice was a huge plus.
  4. Participation in well-organized mastermind calls with outstanding facilitation and coaching skills modeled by Leigh Ann was a learning experience in itself.
  5. I also received fun surprises. Leigh Ann reached out with little “thinking of you” messages containing articles, podcasts, and other things that aided my success immediately.

Team Consultant Academy did not disappoint. Leigh Ann is truly a service-orientated, passion-driven leader sharing her magic with the world.

I came across the TCA information as a result of a tragedy…..I had just lost a lot of content through digital corruption of one of my storage drives!  Ugghhh as I thought about the time, money and energy that had gone into creating this content.   As I read about the model, the assessment tool, the class and the Mastermind Group, I got really excited!  I reached out to Leigh Ann to see if this was “real”!  It was….real for where I was in my business facing the loss of some really good content and needing something I could begin to use IMMEDIATELY.

I joined the TCA as a way to begin to restructure my private consulting business, where team building and facilitation are core components of the services I provide.  By joining the TCA, I have gained three things:

The ability to respond quickly in spite of losing my content! This material has helped me to be flexible and adapt more quickly, because I have the model as a starting point to assess teams and create a roadmap for working with my clients. I could use the team building exercises and information immediately as I learned the model.

The honor of building authentic interactions.  The Mastermind calls has allowed me to build authentic interactions with some very skilled people in the field! Leigh Ann’s sharing and facilitation of this group has been awesome for learning new best practices and resurrecting old ones that I had forgotten about.

The roadmap for building the story together. I am able to work with my old and new clients with the model and tools to continue building a success story together with them.  The model has opened up the door to increased return visits for new clients.

I would recommend the TCA to people who need a proven method of working more effectively with teams and growing your business.

The tragedy of losing a lot of my data was turned into triumph for my business!
