Silverback Consulting Solutions

Silverback Consulting is RMG’s teambuilding branch. Since 1998, Matt has been working with groups to transform themselves into high performing teams. Matt has worked with school groups, collegiate athletic teams, investment bankers, and corporation leadership. We’ve built high functioning teams from groups of people in all stages of group development.

The Silverback is loyal to his troop of followers. The Silverback is the center of the troop’s attention, making sound decisions, mediating conflicts, determining the movements of the group, leading the others to feeding sites and taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of the troop. The Silverback provides leadership.

All we need is time, a common goal, and the desire to win or improve.

All Silverback Consulting programs are custom designed. No two programs are alike or have similiar needs. Please call to inquire about timing, locations, availability, and fees.

Many groups choose to go unnammed here, but some previous Silverback Consulting Clients include:

Trinity College Athletics
SONO Field House
