“Sometimes we get stuck in the things that trip us up, our stumbling blocks, and this was a great opportunity to hear that somebody else has experienced those issues too.”

Hi, I'm Barbara May!

As your team building facilitator, my purpose is to create a safe learning environment where you and your team can discover new ways of solving problems in the workplace such as dealing and communicating with co-workers and bouncing back from mistakes with confidence.

I'm a Leadership Communication Expert, Team Building Facilitator & Award Winning Coach!

Every Team Has Stumbling Blocks...


I can help your team get past these common stumbling blocks:

  • Communication breakdowns between co-workers.

  • Coping with and eventually reducing stress.

  • Personality conflicts between team members.

  • Lack of team spirit or morale.

  • Dealing with and accepting change.

  • Butting heads with managers and team leaders.

  • Boring meetings and presentations.

I teach strategies, tools and techniques to help you build a stronger, more resilient team.
