Creating Dynamic & Aligned Teams
Effective Team Alignment And People Dynamics Workshop
In the end, ITS ALL ABOUT TEAMS AND PEOPLE. A MIS-ALIGNED TEAM IS A TEAM OUT OF RAPPORT AND DOOMED TO FAIL. THE COMPLEXITY OF EACH TEAM NEEDS TO BE UNVEILED AND THEN A SPECIFIC PLAN OF ACTION INSTALLED TO RECTIFY THESE CHALLENGES. ONCE DONE, THIS TEAM HAS THE WINGS TO SOAR AGAIN. It is not as complex as it seems.
Wherever your company is on the above timeline, we have a process to assist in your success. This will entail a detailed discussion on your current challenges and invisible ones – the questions we ask will reveal these. Below is a very brief synopsis of a generic outcome to some of these challenges.
The initial process will be a 2-day workshop to uncover the “foreign element”, these could range from a change in Management, to retrenchments or any significant change that occurs in an organization. We address these and ‘reframe’ the mindsets of the team. Some will need specific coaching /guidance to integrate the changes.
We spend time on ‘attitude’ – the key factor to any success in any endeavor in life. Attitude is everything.
During this workshop we will discuss the road map/ game plan to ensure longevity and successful implementation. The success of the journey is that the leaders become the implementors of the strategy and take ownership of the success by including the team.
It is your company after all, we are simply ‘guides’ on the journey.
This highly effective, participative, initial two-day workshop is designed to enable Teams to function optimally by accessing the deeper potential of the individuals in the Team. We assist delegates to develop a thorough understanding of the challenges they face and generate the necessary flexibility to deal with them creatively.
Through a practical process, we demonstrate how delegates can learn to engage deeply with their colleagues and clients. We teach delegates how to manage their state thereby developing the resilience to continue to function optimally in uncertainty and manage the stress of change. The cost of a stressed workforce is absenteeism and a loss in productivity.
A Team that is aligned, resilient and integrated will achieve optimal results.
We create an environment that promotes full participation, accountability, focus and commitment, raising the energy, joy and the level of passion in your team to deliver peak performance.
Mapping the Current Mindset and State of the Team
In this workshop, the team and individuals are mapped with regards to their mindset of excitement, creativity and motivation. This is done in a non – intrusive manner. It is critical for Management to know where they are and how to keep in a state of motivation. We do this via exploring Unconscious Incompetence, Conscious Incompetence, Conscious Competence and Unconscious Competence.
Unpacking the Real Issues – TOTES/STUCK PATTERNS
Delegates are taken through an exercise to find their patterns of belief and what prevents them from being more successful in their roles and outcomes. These beliefs are then dismantled or “reframed”. This is a fundamental part of life – we must know what our STUCK PATTERNS are, or we will never move forward from where we are now.
One Team – Managing Positive States
Who are we? Team definition!
Where are we going?
How are we going to get there?
Expectations: What we require from one another to achieve excellence.
Building Trust: Openness; Reliability; Congruence and Acceptance.
Managing Diversity with “real and accountable feedback”.
New and creative ideas are brainstormed to replace the un-resourceful ones.
The Communication and Mind Module
Understanding what Communication really means. It introduces unique tools to allow delegates to understand the process of habits and most importantly how to break un-resourceful states. It helps delegates to discover what truly motivates them. As a group they examine the principals of State Management. As human beings it is our STATE at any point in time that either drives us forward or holds us back from achieving real success.
Focus and Purpose – creating a consistent state
Delegates examine their current focus and purpose and assess what they are getting in return. They explore what ‘limiting beliefs’ they have in their personal and professional and how these beliefs motivate or demotivate.
Delegates assess their own Attitudes. Success or failure in life and business depends on Attitude. As individuals, each delegate has to learn to take responsibility for their own Attitude. “It’s not what happens to me in life—it’s what I do about it that counts”.
We make delegates aware that they have a choice to control their Attitudes.
Understanding the Team - The essence of Building “Rapport”
Creating a framework for open and honest Communication. How to build effective Rapport, enable trust and create collaboration. Lines of communication are unlocked. Delegates speak openly, honestly and with deep respect to their colleagues without creating negativity or resentment.
Action Plans – Strategic Blueprint
