About Better Teams

Under Title Selector Center

Better Teams offers products and services that inspire and transform leaders and teams to excel, thrive, and make impactful contributions. Our products are easy to use, fun, and relevant to the challenges of leaders and teams. Leaders and teams become more self-aware, savvy, and skilled in how to work effectively and efficiently. They identify specific ways to increase the engagement of themselves and those around them and become deeply fulfilled by their work.

Better Teams was established in 2017 by Leigh Ann Rodgers. Through her years of working with a variety of companies and organizations, Leigh Ann observed that teams that are experiencing challenges and transitions oftentimes do not have the internal expertise, resources or time required to successfully overcome these challenges and come out on the other side as happy, high performing teams. Better Teams was created to solve the problems that teams face when undergoing any type of transition or change.

Better Teams offers high-quality, unique solutions for two distinct groups of customers:

  1. HR Leaders/Learning & Development professionals at mid-sized companies, AND
  2. Independent Consultants who work with teams


Both of these professional groups are charged with improving team dynamics for teams that are experiencing change/transition or conflict (struggling teams), as well as teams that include aspiring (or struggling) leaders.
