By definition, one is only a leader if one has followers. To accomplish anything of significance at a department or organization level requires the effort of teams of people. An effective team is much more than a group of people working in the same location. The best teams truly understand and commit to common goals, have a shared passion for their work and successes, and are able to appreciate and leverage the diversity of the strengths of each member of the team.
This interactive, team-based workshop helps teams develop and articulate their shared vision and values, identify and work through the challenges they face, and build an appreciation for what each member has to bring to the team. Individual and team-based action plans arise from every session and ensures that the investment in a strong team can continue after the session is complete back in the workplace.
Several different types of team-based assessments can support this work in advance of and throughout your team development effort. The workshop starts with understanding your team and the environment in which you work and appreciating the strengths each member of the team brings to the work.
- Establish a common understanding and organization-specific definition of what constitutes a well-functioning team.
- Understand and appreciate the strengths of individual team members and how to effectively manage and leverage team diversity.
- Build individual and team-based development plans based on what you learn about each member of the team and their aspirations as a team.
- Gain tools and techniques to keep your team accountable to its goals.
All workshops can be tailored to your distinct needs and context. Workshops can be offered in half-day to two-day sessions to suit your schedule and how thoroughly you wish to explore the topic.
