Better connect, collaborate, and handle conflict with your fellow humans - with the teams and people you interact with both at work and in life.


People + Diverse Ideas = Conflict.

Whenever you're collaborating with other people, conflict can and most likely will arise. Whether a team equals your work colleagues, your family, your friends, or others, creating an extraordinary team where healthy conflict thrives means learning how to become an Extraordinary Team member.


During our Create Extraordinary Teams program, you'll discover ways to:

Develop Healthy Conflict

Tackle assumptions, frustrations, disagreements, and misalignments using rational, logical, and practical methods for conflict resolution.

Define the Elements of a Team

Learn each team members' Elemental style that - when healthy - can overcome any obstacle that arises; but, when stressed, can turn Hero into Villain.

Design a Blueprint for Success

Establish a clear, mission-focused, and aligned operating model so each team member can contribute and succeed.


How to Create Extraordinary Teams.

At the Painted Porch, we like to do things a little differently. You'll be be up and moving, participating fully in mind, body, heart, and spirit - intentionally; and actively making decisions about how to approach and resolve conflict, overcome obstacles as a team unit, and design a blueprint for how to make that happen.


Program Outline & Approach.

This program is grouped and organized into 8 Modules delivered over 6 Weeks (8 hours of on-demand content!). Each module includes lessons and exercises for you to watch and reflect on.

Each lesson contains video or audio, plus a summary worksheet, with additional, downloadable materials and tools you can take and use.


Watch. Reflect. Discuss.

We believe that real learning and transformation is not a spectator sport. Through per-lesson discussion boards and a Private Community, PLUS Monthly, Live Group Video Coaching Calls (optional, add-on), you can connect with us and your fellow "Extraordinary Team" members to share your takeaways, insights, ah-has, and more to shift from knowing to doing and becoming.


Program Details.


Over 8 hours of on-demand, self-paced videos, exercises, and supporting materials to help you develop strong connections and mission-focused, aligned teams.


Through a private, online community you'll connect with Amy and your fellow students to share ideas on how you can integrate the lessons into your own life - both at home and at work.


Attend monthly, live video coaching calls with Amy (optional, add-on) and fellow students to dive deeper into what you've learned and explore additional insights and methods to expand your knowledge and grow in your people dynamics.
