Becoming a High Performing Collaborative Team (Visioning | Cross-Team)

This is one of the most unique, effective and results-driven courses you can take your team through! This is not just a training course, it is a unique working session that will help your team understand some critical elements about who they are, what they do, and how they can improve internally and externally with other teams.

Through our various transformation coaching work we’ve found that many teams struggle with issues such as: Breaking down the silos between teams, internal conflicts and unhealthy team norms, lack of empowerment, no clear understanding of the team’s role and purpose, inefficient processes for getting their work done, lack of collaboration/trust with other teams and many others. Our goal from this course is to address some of these real world issues and develop a roadmap for improvement.

We provide an overview of why Servant Leadership and foundation traits of Trust, Unconditional Positive Regard, Not Telling Ourselves Stories, Being Authentic, Genuinely Listening, Seeking Common Ground and many others contribute to high performance. We walk through many self-reflection exercises (team and individual) to help the team reflect and improve things like What We’re Known For, Our Team Norms, What Value We Produce, Completion Criteria and Our Definition of ‘Done’.

Key outputs from this course are:

  • Current and future desired internal team norms.
  • Current and future ‘What We’re Known For’.
  • Written description of ‘What Our Factory Produces’.
  • Lists of short and long term (for Leadership) process improvement recommendations to help transform the team’s internal processes.

But our most important output is to see an improvement in team dynamics, feel an energized sense of purpose and have the team contribute towards improving their own processes. This course is usually tailored to meet your specific needs.

We promise to make this a very unique and worthwhile experience for your team!
