The Prelude Suite, a 5X5 Teams product, is a team trust accelerator for both colocated and virtual teams of any size.

Adding Prelude to the beginning of a project adds a few hours to your timelines, but will act as a catalyst towards developing trust. This ultimately leads towards significant increases in team performance.

There are 3 modules available within the Prelude Suite. Collectively, these modules move your team from a “Me” to “We” mindset. Your Prelude Facilitator will help you determine what modules are right for your team.

How will Prelude help your team?

These exercises build trust by empowering teammates to express themselves positively and holistically. What’s implicit – what makes us tick – is vital to understand but difficult to explain.  This experience helps make the invisible visible in a fun engaging way. It helps align teammates around shared expectations of excellence and as a preventive against interpersonal conflict.
