Team development events

Long gone are the days when team development days were simply about everyone having a good time and getting to know each other better. Often there are other business objectives that also need to be met when everyone is together in the same place at the same time.

I've facilitated a number of sessions with a variety of objectives and share here examples of these to give you a sense of the variety of format and style if I'm involved in facilitating a session for you.
  • Resolving difficult relationships with internal stakeholders -  mix of training, group work, role play, discussion and use of frameworks for change coaching process.
  • Strategy development with board of management - use of landscaping your life process to identify mission, vision and strategy moving forward.
  • How to successfully establish a team with individuals from 2 organisations and 4 locations as part of organisational merger - use of NLP training, establishing working parties and giving responsibility to the teams for different aspects of the development of a cohesive team.    
  • Inspiring action towards achieving annual objectives - use of individual input and jigsaw puzzle to embed specific goals and establish commitment of whole team to their achievement.
  • Midyear review of progress against targets - use of metaphor for all presentations from teams and individuals to provide basis for creative communication and engagement.
A session facilitated by me is certainly more likely to include a walk on the beach as it is sitting in a conference room in a hotel. Although without understanding your objectives, it's difficult to definitively state what would work best for you and your team at this time to meet those objectives.
If you'd like to do something different in order to get a different outcome and take team performance to the next level please do get in touch.
