Innovative School Leader Dan Hoverman Joins TeamWorks International

Recently retired Mounds View Schools Superintendent Dan Hoverman joined TeamWorks International this summer as an associate consultant. With more than three decades of innovative and distinguished school leadership experience, Dan will provide strategic coaching services to school district executive team members, school administrators and school boards in his new role with TeamWorks International.

Who are we?

TeamWorks International is a Minnesota-based strategic and leadership development consultancy powered by FrameWorks.

As Superintendent Dan successfully implemented FrameWorks throughout the district.

“Working with TWI over the past 16 years has transformed the way our school board, cabinet and administrative team work together and enabled us to maximize our effectiveness,” Hoverman said. “Many of the goals we accomplished during this time are due to the change in mindset fostered by use of the TeamWorks' FrameWorks.”

Our Technique

We've earned a national reputation for helping organizations develop the capacity for Leadership through Partnership, a compliment to the traditional “command/control” style of leadership. Through this technique, our clients become more adaptive, responsive and proactive.

Our Team

Our work with clients is not simply what we do, but how we do it: with appreciation and curiosity. Our understanding of governance, authority, stakeholder engagement, and facilitation stems from our diverse experience across service-based sectors.

Our Tools

In our work we draw upon FrameWorks™, images and processes to help people in organizations work more effectively together toward a common goal.

TeamWorks' Insight Research reports, Insight Online, and analysis of client data deepens understanding of our client's current reality and existing opportunities.

I have worked with many organizations and have interacted with a number of different consultants. What was different about working with TeamWorks consultants, and the tools they use, was that they JUST MADE SENSE. I think it’s because they mix an understanding of human dynamics and relationships with the structural and developmental needs of a productive organization.
