Team Performance Workshops

These workshops are designed to help a group of high performing individuals learn how to work best together.  Team leaders and their teams need to build respect, build trust and avoid personality clashes. We help teams create structure and put together rules to make sure everyone is heard. We teach people how to use conflict productively and hold each other accountable to the results and goals they plan.

These workshops are best delivered for teams attending together, so they can learn tools and techniques to use when back at work.

How to Lead Meetings That Get Results

Boring and unproductive meetings are a huge waste of key company resources – that’s the time of your team! Consider this: Seventy-three percent of people say they have brought other work to meetings and thirty-nine percent say they have dozed during meetings. Wouldn’t it feel great to lead meetings that get results and have participants say: “I feel we made a lot of progress?” This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn to run meetings, save time and get results more easily. During this session you’ll get templates, tools and techniques that will help you quickly plan and lead meetings that get the results you’re aiming for.

You will also learn how to:

  • Save time by making clear decisions with your team
  • Move projects or goals forward through commitment to action
  • Engage people and get them excited about what you’re working on
  • Manage team dynamics

Process: Based on the analysis and the people involved, use the right steps to make your decision. Choose the decision-making tools that will help you reach a conclusion. Implementation: Make a plan to follow through on your decisions.

Evaluation: Create an evaluation template to learn if the decision had the desired impact and what you can learn that will help you make better decisions in future.
