Teamability® Online Store: Unique Products Tied to Team Culture and Meaningful Work Becomes Home to Teamability Merchandise

Teamability Mug

​The Gabriel Institute, creator of Teamability®, has launched an online store offering new forms of team-focused merchandise. Unlike sports-themed online shops, many Teamability Store offerings relate to the different ways that people seek to make meaningful team contributions – as identified and explained by Teamability technology.

“With people in hundreds of companies around the world now discovering the elements of teamwork and team chemistry, we’ve been getting requests,” explains Nick Angell, Client Services Manager at TGI. “Now a t-shirt, coffee mug, or tote bag that identifies a person’s mode of teaming can help to spread the mutual understanding that generates positive team chemistry.”

Every human being should have the gift of knowing how they team and what their innate approaches to work are. Teamability has the ability to save them a lot of unnecessary toil and disappointment; all while bringing clarity and focus to their life's work.

There are three design collections on the site: one is specifically for Teamability users, one is about Teamwork in general, and a third is for TeamSpirit® – a version of Teamability for spiritual communities, to be launched in 2018. The Teamability and Teamwork collections are stocked with products, while TeamSpirit will expand over time.

Many items on the site were inspired by quotes from the new book, ‘Timing Isn’t Everything. Teaming Is.’ by Dr. Janice Presser, co-founder and CEO of The Gabriel Institute. Others feature images and quotes that are original and/or out of the ordinary. “As we looked around for interesting quotes on teamwork, we kept seeing the same ones over and over,” says TGI COO, Mark Talaba, “so we dug deeper and found some great material that we think people will enjoy.”

Seeking an online home for its store, TGI chose because it combines excellent value, very high-quality products, and the ability for buyers to easily customize their purchases.
