Rising Team is a Team Development Platform that helps companies increase employee engagement and retention, scale talent development, and improve culture and connection. Their software equips managers to run deeply connecting, experiential team sessions, remotely or in-person, without needing an outside facilitator.
Rising Team is a subscription product that comes with access to all of their different leadership kits. Each Rising Team Kit covers one leadership or connection topic and includes training for the leader and a fun, interactive experience for the team. The software takes care of everything that an outside facilitator would typically cover—learning goals, warmups, activities, data summaries, action items, and even countdown timers.
Kits are based on leadership science and cover all the topics that drive high-performing teams including psychological safety, appreciation, clear expectations and more. By using the Rising Team platform, managers not only learn the skills needed for effective leadership, but they also consistently practice those skills with their teams, helping the team feel supported and valued. Sessions range in length from 10 mins to 2 hours, and they recommend 3-4 hours of session time per quarter. In between sessions, they send weekly nudges to managers to encourage ongoing behavior change. Companies can also use the Rising Team platform to turn their own leadership content into scalable, measurable, interactive team workshops.
Unique Value Proposition:
There are a lot of companies that help large enterprises measure employee engagement. They are the only company that is proven to help them move it in a meaningful way. Both longitudinal and test vs control data shows that using Rising Team increases employee engagement and employee NPS. Leading companies and organizations including Google, Bank of Hawaii, Intuit, Farmers Insurance, Spencer Stuart, Yahoo!, Achieve, The San Diego Food Bank, and many more, are using Rising Team to develop stronger managers and more resilient teams. More than 90% of managers and team members who participate in Rising Team sessions report that they feel more connected, learn something valuable, and will work more effectively together as a team. Rising Team also has several advantages vs hiring outside facilitators to lead trainings: 1) It is significantly more affordable 2) It is more effective because it can scale throughout all levels of an organization 3) Managers learn the content more thoroughly when they facilitate the sessions themselves 4) Because the team members are all included, it increases engagement for employees at all levels, instead of only among leadership
