Described by Patrick Lencioni as “the one competitive advantage that remains largely untapped”, team-work as a concept and a reality is explored and discussed, shining a light on both “things we do well” and “things we don’t”. An interactive, thought-provoking and engaging team-coaching workshop in which participants are invited to reflect on what great teams do and how their team measures up, to agree strategies for improvement and to commit to follow-through on both personal and team actions.
The workshop is supported by an Insights Discovery personal profile per participant following prior completion of a 15-minute online questionnaire < please note this the profile is complementary for Vistage members only, any guests that wish to complete the profile would be responsible for their own costs .
- What is the profile of your team?
- What are the attributes of an outstanding team? How does yours measure up against these?
- Introduction of Patrick Lencioni’s “5 Dysfunctions of a Team” framework.
- Given the diverse styles and needs in your team, how do you build trust? How can you ensure that topics critical to the team’s success aren’t ignored, that debate is passionate yet respectful? How can you get commitment from all when some have vehemently disagreed? How can you hold each other to account on behaviours as well as performance? How do you keep everyone motivated and focused, despite the differences between them?
- Reflection, planning, commitment to action, follow-through.
The workshop can be tailored to meet participants’ specific needs and last from half a day to three days. Giles is very output-focused and committed to helping participants transfer agreed actions to their real world, ensuring follow-through and accountability.
Participants leave refreshed and re-engaged. With issues aired and strategies for improvement agreed, levels of motivation and commitment to team results will be high. Plus, with a host of practical tools and techniques to take away and implement immediately for improved interpersonal communications, participants will find it easier to tackle and resolve “difficult” topics.
