ALIGN TEAMS FOR STRATEGIC ACTION
Uncover Strengths and Blind Spots to Get Ahead and Drive Exceptional Performance
Identify what is or will block you from achieving your goals while celebrating team members' strengths.
Team building and understanding team dynamics are helpful, but understanding how teams align to their strategic goals is game changer.
When you know what your blind spots are, you have the opportunity to address them before they become a problem, accelerating your team's ability to achieve their goals and perform at their best.
Workshop available for managers, leadership, or whole teams.
How do you know your team is designed to achieve your goals?
Achieving team goals can be difficult even in the best of times.
Throw in mistrust, miscommunication, and misalignment, and the obstacles start to stack up.
Understand Your Team
We use a short, online behavioral assessment to understand the drives and motivations of your team members. This assessment tells reveals work-related people data such as how they:
- Handle risk
- Make decisions
- Generate and value ideas
- Need to work (environment)
- Best communicate
- Process information
- Deal with conflict
Sharing the results with employees helps them develop better self-awareness, while helping us understand what they need to be successful and how they align on the Competing Values Framework.
We can see each person’s greatest strengths and potential blind spots, as well as the strengths and potential blind spots when they work together as a team.
Align to Strategic Goals
The POWER of this workshop is in understanding how the team aligns to your strategic initiatives. The manager and our IO psychologist discuss objectives in advance of the workshop.
We overlay our employee profiles and strategic initiatives to gain insight into the strengths we can lean on.
Even more importantly, we can see the areas where we are not aligned. When we can see our blind spots, we’re no longer blind to them, and can do something about them.
Knowing is half the battle.
If your strategic initiatives are driving new revenue and acquiring new clients, but your team’s strengths are organization, creating processes, and predictability, you’re going to have a problem.
When we can see that problem before it arises, we have options: add a team member with the strengths we need, upskill someone on the team to take these responsibilities, or come up with a game plan for accountability.
For Teams: Team dynamics are critical to performance. In this workshop, your team will learn the most important things about each other, and the team as a whole, that will drive cohesion and success.
Format: All team members are present for this 4 hour workshop. First, we’ll dive into each individual to celebrate how their greatest strengths show up at work. Then, we’ll address the strengths and blind spots of the group as a whole – communication, decision making, dealing with risk, etc. Finally, we will look at the team’s alignment with strategic initiatives. We will work together to develop ways to capitalize on team strengths and create an action plan to overcome areas where we see weaknesses.
