Introductory Team Development Workshop
The first step in transforming or improving teams and workgroups.
An integral first step in improving culture, climate, retention, and goal achievement, Beth will communicate with you in advance to ensure that the goals and culture of the organization are understood and incorporated in the design.
The workshop is then intentionally designed to be meaningful and relevant for your participants.
Groups of 6-30 participants from all levels of your organization will take a confidential online strengths or work style assessment in advance of the workshop. During the workshop they will participate in fun and engaging activities, dialogues, and spot coaching to advance understanding and effective use of the both individual and shared strengths.
Throughout the workshop they will explore cognitive shortcuts, triggers, and the how’s and why’s of resisting accountability and collaboration. Through the lens of brain-based research and emotional intelligence, they will begin to debunk common myths and challenge their own long-held thinking errors that stifle collaboration and clear communication. The experiences of the day will help them to begin to unpack silo and scarcity thinking and develop a strategy for moving forward with improved unity and trust.
Following the workshop Beth will provide recommended next steps and resources for continued team development.
Recommended time frame: 6 hours, including a 45-minute lunch break.
Suitable for Executive teams, mid-level teams, cross-functional teams, departments, or virtual workgroups.
Joy At Work - Re-Energizing Staff
Self-awareness and self-management are key attributes contributing to employees’ success, happiness, purpose, and fulfillment. When employees lack skills or the awareness of how to assess situations, manage their responses, and positively contribute to team goals, the result can be blaming, helplessness, low productivity, gossip, and drama. The cost to the organization is loss of time and productivity, increased turnover, and contagious negativity running through entire departments.
In this fun and engaging workshop, employees will learn to become empowered to make positive shifts. We will explore thinking errors and behavior patterns and explore how our brains deal with stress and fear. Employees will gain insight into how they each can positively impact drama, conflict, and productivity as well as alter negative patterns of behavior. This is a fun, activity-rich workshop focused on improving happiness and satisfaction in work and in life. (Appropriate for audience sizes of 6-600)
