Too many teams, projects and meetings fail to achieve the desired results due to poor planning and/or poor facilitation. We are experts at helping clients build effective teams, plan successful meetings, and facilitate meetings in ways that lead to outstanding results. The scenarios listed below represent just a few scenarios where our facilitation services can be applied.
We help intact and cross-functional project teams clarity their improvement targets, assess the current situation, identify improvement opportunities, create improvement plans, and implement those plans. We work with team sponsors, leaders and members to ensure that they uncover impactful improvements.
We work with teams charged with creating and implementing action plans to address issues raised through employee surveys, suggestions and focus groups. Our facilitators use a variety of resources and techniques to guide the team to tangible, results-oriented action plans to address critical issues and opportunities.
Our teambuilding efforts elp teams focus on both the "process" and "content" components of team effectiveness. Rather than using a cookie-cutter approach, we work with your teams to identify the key issues, assess the current level of team effectiveness and crdate an appropriate team development design that will lead to specific results.
Modelled after work done at GE and several other organizations, these time-intensive "Work-Out" sessiopns are designed to lead to concrete decisions and clear action plans. We are experts in helping organizations prepare for these sessions and in faciliating them to positive conclusions.
Clients have invited us in to help design, prepare and facilitate senior leadership and executive retreats. We work with them to gain clarity around the focus and desired results and, in turn, design and facilitate retreats that achieve those results. We partner with the leadership team and with any additional internal and external content experts they bring in for presentations and panel discussions.
