We believe work is a team sport. Great teams and the people who make up those teams are the heart and soul of every organization. The most successful teams have leaders that believe in each person’s potential, set high expectations, and support the team to reach them.
At Rising Team we aim to give leaders the training and tools they need to build engaged, connected and successful teams. Our system is built around a philosophy we call the 3 Cs—Coach, Clarify, and Connect. It's a framework for leaders to consistently do what great sports coaches do: understand and develop each team member, articulate a clear vision and plan to get results, and build the team into a cohesive unit.
Led by CEO and founder, Jennifer Dulski, Rising Team offers proprietary assessments and tools that are backed by science and were developed for use with her own teams over her more than 20 years of leadership and management experience at Facebook, Google, Yahoo!, and Change.org.
Rising Team’s deep connection to team sports and the life skills they teach, harken back to Jennifer’s time as a national champion crew coxswain, where she learned valuable lessons about how to bring teamwork to life. No matter the outcome, she was in the boat, coaching her team and working alongside them as a member of the crew. (And when they won, they got to throw her in the water, per longstanding rowing tradition that Jen refers to as “taking one for the team.”) These lessons are as valuable in the workplace as they are in the boat and serve as a core part of the foundation of Rising Team.
