Sustainability In Action

Resources to Help You & Your Team Sustain Learning & Development

Now that the Team Management Profile (TMP) has been debriefed and you are familiar with the TMP HUB, it is important to keep the learning and motivation going. TMS Americas has designed a webpage dedicated to helping you and your team sustain development and extend the use of the TMS material over time. Our goal is to provide simple designs you can weave into your busy schedules. Contact Carrie Bumgarner if you have questions.

There are numerous designs for Sustainability in Action and what sustainability might look like. Below is an example from a leadership and team development initiative and how they plan to sustain the use of the TMP HUB and models over a 6-month time frame.
