Team Effectiveness Solutions
We work with intact groups (senior leadership teams, functional departments, a new team coming together, etc.) in a multi-touch program comprised of several leadership skills workshops. These workshops focus on developing key leadership capabilities. Together with you, we craft the framing and the “through-line” that connects and ties the learning/experience to your team’s business needs and goals.
Linda Orton, chief marketing officer at Alvarez & Marsal, talks about how Performance of a Lifetime strengthened her team in this 3-minute video.
The Team Effectiveness experience is delivered as follows:
Refine your desired outcomes
We explore your team development needs and context — aligning a new team, new challenges for an existing team, difficult team dynamics at any tenure — and define expected outcomes, impact, and framing for your program.
Conduct discovery + design
We interview team members and key stakeholders to gain insights that inform the detailed program design.
Engage + ready participants
We build interest, engagement, and ownership with custom communications that provide pre-work, and frame the program’s value for participants.
Delivery (part 1) — the workshop
This can occur at your organization or off site. We pay a lot of attention to “putting up the show” and will do whatever it takes to create a seamless and worry-free experience.
We provide a series of communications to drive the team’s on-the-job experimentation with new skills and tools, and prepare for virtual coaching groups.
Delivery (part 2) — virtual coaching
We engage the team — in whole or in smaller groups depending on size — in putting new skills, performances, and ways of working together in action, in a creative and supportive context. Sessions run for 90 minutes via videoconference, led by one of the program coaches.
Keep the growing going
We share and discuss our observations and insights from the program. This report informs leadership on progress toward business goals, and recommended next steps.
Five Key Leadership Capabilities
LEADER AS STORYTELLER
Leaders learn how to inspire, and engage people through the power of storytelling.
LEADING WITH AUTHENTICITY
Leaders become more open, honest and multi-layered as they learn to create environments that empower and enable others to do the same.
LEADERS WHO INFLUENCE
Leaders learn to turn influencing without hierarchy into an artful, relational and creative endeavor.
LEADING WITH AGILITY
Leaders use the toolbox of play, improvisation and creative experimentation to build agile intellectual and emotional “muscles.”
LEADER AS COACH
Leaders grow their ability to coach, teach, challenge and empower teams and individuals.
