Organizational Transformation


Our multi-tiered approach to facilitating change includes employee engagement assessments, facilitated sessions with the leadership team, workshops for managers and teams, and gamification apps to ensure culture stays active and on target.

"Sam came highly recommended and after attending his sessions I can see why. We brought StarMaker in to deliver a series of learning journeys designed to create alignment and establish best-practice across all levels.

He worked with our Executive teams on leadership and cultural transformation, with our Managers on employee engagement, and with our frontline teams on solutions-based thinking and authenticity in service. Throughout he was able to link the content back to our brand and mission.

The teams found the sessions inspiring and practical. His use of role-play using professional actors gave the teams an opportunity to take the tools shared throughout the sessions and put them into action. We also received tailor made follow-up activities that we were able to run independently in-house to keep the learning alive. I strongly suggest StarMaker to any company looking to truly engage their people."

Diversity and Inclusion


We take a humanistic approach to addressing bias by exploring the practical benefits to inclusivity. Our sessions examine the psychological function of trust and how it can be cultivated. Using tools from improvised theater and thought-provoking group activities, we explore human nature. Through script writing exercises and facilitated role-plays, relationships are redefined to optimize diversity.

"I needed an efficient way to bring together the geographically and culturally diverse team; to work across borders, fill knowledge gaps and to share intelligence and resources.

Teresa's workshop achieved all of my business objectives, and as importantly, helped to forge bonds and increase collaboration. It was also great fun!"

Leadership Communication Coaching


Leaders are in the spotlight and their behavior impacts more than just their relationships with teams and clients, it drives organizational culture. In 1999 Teresa Norton pioneered a powerful new approach to working one-to-one with senior executives by borrowing from the theater director’s toolbox and since that time has coached over 300 executives from Middle Managers to C-Suite.

"Teresa is an exceptional executive coach. Exceptional is a word that is often over-rated but with Teresa the word itself doesn’t do her justice.

The Workplace Big-Five Personality Assessment


The five-factor model is recognized as the most well-researched psychometric available. Workplace Big-Five increases awareness of what may be driving your behavior and provides insights into the reactions of co-workers and clients. Sam Bobertz is a certified Workplace Big-Five consultant.

We suggest employing this powerful tool in both group work and one-to-one coaching.

Role-play


Facilitated role-plays with professional actors, allow teams to experiment with new approaches to communication in a safe, consequence-free ‘rehearsal’ environment. By combining improvisation, strategic storytelling and personality metrics, these 'real-plays’ simulate the types of challenging conversations and situations participants encounter in the workplace.

We immediately felt that the team dynamic was more energetic with greater enthusiasm involved. Sam’s unique role-play activities have opened “the hidden treasures” for all of our staff members.
