More trust. Less toxicity. Better results.
Share a creative vision for the future. Solve the problems side by side.
Great teamwork and begins with trust and compassion. Excellent team work adds rapid-fire novel thinking, diversity, kind communication, and a lean approach to moving the business plan forward. This type of communication is a learned process.
Creativity and emotional awareness are the foundations of motivation, engagement, strategic planning, and efficient team management. Decades ago we focused on analytical skill and expected the leader to be more proficient than anyone they supervised. These days we know the most human and “non-outsourcable” skill is complex behavioral intelligence – formerly known as “soft skills”.
In facilitated sessions, I work with your team to develop a comprehensive understanding of themselves and others, and to hone their communication and strategic planning skills to minimize conflict, increase innovation, and smoothly move through change with a team who loves to come to work. I teach teams to lead artfully with breakouts on accountability, feedback, presence, confidence, creativity, emotional intelligence, conflict management, planning and organizing, co-created vision, and flow.
Typically, this process is organized in a cohort format and lasts about 12-14 months with live sessions quarterly and individual coaching and peer triad work in-between.
Coaching your team, I will help you:
Begin with your “start state” and choose an empirical analysis to measure where you are beginning.
Get clear as a group about your vision for the future and identify both strengths and blindspots/gaps which will inform that path.
Take an individual look at the players on the team and assess behavioral nature, emotional intelligence, and contributions to the team.
Educate individual leaders with coaching development summaries and assistance for how they can bring their best to work in support of the team’s new goals.
Create a lean strategy and system for clear assignments and workflow.
Set a timeline for reaching specific milestones and set an accomplishable (but significant) goal for conversion or change.
Teach this team how to begin to “mentor down” this process, teaching tangible skills to other members of the organization.
As we work, we cement the team’s unique mix of creative intelligence and determine a path for psychological safety, trust, and cohesion.
Finally, we put action to a creative transformation strategy and 30/60/90 day plan.
Last, we schedule a 90-day check in after completion of regularly schedule meetings.
