Workshops

The key for your organization to thrive is to be cohesive, aligned & profitable at the same time.

With so many changes constantly taking place, it’s no wonder your organization struggles through the transitions. Your leaders struggle to connect purpose and profit through consolidations, technology changes, regulatory pressures, and workforce shortages… which creates tension between your mission and your very real need to keep a healthy bottom line.

At the end of the day, your people are pulled in so many different directions and are jumping through so many hoops that they’re hungrier than ever for someone to LEAD them toward successfully fulfilling your mission while maintaining a profitable business.

That’s where we can have such a profound impact on your leaders and teams. Our programs show the leaders in your organization how to cultivate a thriving, magnetic culture with engaged employees who are driven and aligned with your mission.

Most workshops can be presented as virtual or in person sessions.

This requires mobilizing people, making decisions despite uncertainty and keeping your own energy up to ride out each wave. This session will help leaders to:

The High-Performance Series

Turn your team into a powerhouse.  Drastically improve your team’s performance.  Build teams that trust each other, communicate, and hold each other accountable—so you maximize your bottom line. Use a proven framework to build accountable and cohesive teams. Introducing The High Performance Series, a two-part workshop series designed to help any team reach peak performance through expert guidance and first-of-its-kind people data.
Understand different individual work styles and motivating needs.

Part 1: Discovering Your Team Type: No team is effective without trust and communication. With the help of an expert facilitator, this workshop helps you build a self-aware and trusting team. Establish an understanding of each team member’s motivations and work style, and uncover your group’s specific “Team Type.” Through this catalyzing reveal, your team will become a unit, building lasting cohesion and collaboration habits. You’ll also uncover the group’s collective working style, strengths, and blind spots, and leave with a clear action plan to better work in harmony.

Part 2: Designing for Strategic Action: Many teams aren’t a good fit for their objectives and don’t even realize it. This workshop turns uncertain team performance around by mapping a group’s natural strengths to its goals, exposing areas of misalignment and providing recommendations to address them. Attendees will learn how to “stretch” their skillset, so they can refocus their daily priorities to best serve the goals at hand. You’ll also be given a clear action plan on how to deliver on the proposed objectives with renewed confidence.

Help your teams perform at their best, so you can get out of the weeds and focus on the strategy ahead. These workshops can be virtual or in person and take approximately 2 hours each. These require a Predictive Index subscription for access to behavioral assessments, software and workshop materials. Ask about the best solution for your company’s needs, whether large or small.
