Team Development

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” –Michael Jordan


A high-performing team is an asset of value beyond measure. Start-up investors, for example, often value the quality of the team and the relationships between and among founding members more than the start-up idea itself.

From team assessments to practical operational models to leadership coaching, look to Russ Powell Consulting as a strategic partner in the development of your teams.

Manager Development

The need for management development is urgent. To survive in today’s complex, volatile, uncertain and ambiguous business environment, you need strong managers—leaders who can think and function multi-dimensionally.


Managers today must be able to consider and "juggle" not only the technical processes and outputs of their teams, but also the interactions between and among team members, and their own personal energy, attitudes and beliefs.

Let us help you assess and develop your managers.


"The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them—glory and danger alike—and yet, notwithstanding, they go out to meet it." –Thucydides, early Greek historian


Sometimes we all need a little help along the way, some personal attention to assist us in crossing a threshold, working through a transition, changing a habit, or developing a new skill.

About Russ Powell Consulting


Founded in 2010, Russ Powell Consulting grew out of the work of veteran performance improvement consultant Russ Powell.

After working for over 20 years as a training and

performance improvement consultant, Russ decided to focus his efforts on the building and development of work teams and their leaders.

Russ Powell Consulting is founded on three principles. High-performing teams have:

  1. Managers who think systemically—They recognize that they are part of an interdependent, complex system, and they take that into account when analyzing, planning and executing.

  2. Members who are disciplined—in thought, word and action. The best teams are comprised of disciplined people who think rigorously before taking disciplined action.

  3. Access to the right information and the right resources—including clarity on performance expectations, feedback, agreements between and among each other, and clear processes and procedures.
