What Others are Saying About TeamWorks

“One of the best things about TeamWorks is their diverse repertoire of knowledge and skills. It is a huge timesaver when I call and ask for help with a particular topic and they know exactly what resource I need and how to deliver the professional learning. I also enjoy the partnership. They truly partner with districts---they do not operate in a silo but rather a part of our team and this accelerates professional learning.”

“TeamWorks doesn't simply come in and apply a standard process; they get to know the people they are working with and the complexities surrounding the task at hand, while working to design a process that meets the unique needs of the district.”
Dr. Jenna Mitchler
Assistant Superintendent, Bloomington Public Schools
“TeamWorks consultants partner with clients, working with them to understand their needs and hopes to effectively design an approach that works specifically for each client. TeamWorks provides a set of tools and Frameworks that are flexible to changing circumstances and can be scaled throughout an organization. It is an approach that can transform how a leader leads, how a follower experiences that leadership, and how everyone in the organization can partner to meet their individual and collective desires. Bottom line: it works!”

“Teamworks applies conceptual frameworks to the work that school administrators and boards do. They have helped board members to understand their role and provide a system to define administrative work from governance. Our board members use this language to self-correct when they wander out of their defined roles.”

Superintendent, Willmar Public Schools

“We worked with TeamWorks to study our changing school district demographics and to facilitate attendance boundary changes. TeamWorks spent time with us to understand our school district and the communities we serve, completed a comprehensive demographics study, and facilitated committees of interested parties to develop multiple attendance boundary scenarios. Their process provided excellent community engagement and communication, resulting in a plan that met our goals and provided minimal disruption. As we implemented the changes, TeamWorks provided the analytical tools we needed for success.”

“TeamWorks’ follow-up coaching and guidance are second to none. They are diligent about checking in to see that the strategic roadmap and the systems that support the roadmap are working. This is the first plan that has engaged our school board in governance and provided them the tools to lead from a governance lens.”

Ray Queener has been an outstanding partner in all of our work. His experience, expertise, flexibility and care for his clients is unmatched in my experience."
Dr. Emily McDonald

“One of the best things about TeamWorks is the depth and breadth of their expertise. Their direct experience in various leadership roles provides a practical, real life leadership partnership experience because they have the lived experience as school district leaders themselves. Their ability to support us through any challenge using their proven systems tools keeps us prepared and a step ahead of the leadership challenges that come our way!”
