Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Community Health Improvement contracted with Cheryl Harris and Associates, Inc. to assess Revere CARES team and implement an intervention. Two years later we became a cohesive team; expanded our team, added two new initiatives, and have received national recognition for our work.

Cheryl Harris and Associates, Inc. conducted interviews with Revere CARES staff, co-workers, and clients, designed and conducted exercises to assess team functioning, and observed staff meetings.  Upon completion of the assessment Cheryl Harris and Associates, Inc. worked with me to develop clear descriptions of roles and responsibilities for each staff member, to improve communication, and to develop management skills to support a collaborative leadership style.  Cheryl also supported each member of our team as an individual and the team as a whole.  Over the two years that she worked with Revere CARES team, the team has established behavioral norms which serve as a foundation for our improved collaboration and team achievement of organizational goals.  She helped team members understand and embrace all aspects of our diversity; appreciate the various talents/knowledge within our team; and understand that our team can have rotating leadership when expertise is matched to a given project; and think from different perspectives.
