2 | HBDI for Teams

This is our most popular product in our HBDI workshop in New York City. Teams love going through our HBDI debriefs and often describe them as 'enlightening', 'fun', and 'insightful'.

HBDI for Teams starts with the individual assessment which every team member has to complete. In a typically 6-hour long session (depending on team size), we make a very interactive introduction to HBDI, debrief all team members together with the group and finally work through the HBDI Team report, which shows the dynamics of the team.

Usually, teams that go through our debrief make the HBDI colors (blue, green, yellow, red) immediately part of their business language. Do you have a strategic thinker disrupting the action planning by continuously throwing in new ideas? HBDI training experts address this without conflict by appreciating the ideas and the person's contribution ('yellow') but ask for their patience until the action plan ('green') is done.

Flat rate depending on group size. (includes all licenses, individual and team reports, and an all-day session (online or in-person). Book a 30-minute session with Dirk (link opens Calendly) to discuss if this is the right action for your team.


What our clients say about us

Dirk and his team helped cure a lingering dysfunction in our leadership team. We were talking too much about each other and not with each other. The HBDI workshop in New York City was instrumental in shaping our communication and awareness of our differences.

- Brian, CEO Food Company

Dirk's HBDI debriefs are legendary. We've been using HBDI throughout our whole business unit and the feedback is always the same: insightful, scarily precise, and highly entertaining while being directly applicable to daily work life.

- Robert, CFO Financial Services

HBDI was instrumental in finding the right strategy for our market and getting the organization on board.

- Catherine, CEO Automotive

It is astonishing when the whole organization knows the HBDI language. We took the decision to take all our 170 employees through HBDI with Dirk and it proved to be a great investment. Both in our people and our business.

- Division Head, Machinery

There are many psychological assessments out there and I went through a few of them in my career. Every report gave me something to work with, but none offers a single truth. That's the same for HBDI. Yet, when I think back, HBDI is the one that stands out. I am still using the colors in my communication and remember the lively and insightful debrief with Dirk. Amazing! 

- Business Unit Lead, Pharma

We've been using HBDI for a few years now and it does not get old. I was waiting for the day when people get tired of using the colors, but that day never came. Instead, it has become part of our culture. We're grateful to have Dirk as our partner who brings in so much energy and meaning to the report through the HBDI workshop in New York City.

- Aaron, CEO Machinery
