Too many teams, projects, and meetings fail to achieve their 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 a way that leads to outstanding results. Call us to discuss your specific needs for planning and facilitating your various teams and meetings.
Improvement Teams: We help intact and cross-functional project teams clarify 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 true improvements.
Action Planning: 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 to guide the team to tangible, results-oriented action plans to address critical issues.
Teambuilding: Our teambuilding efforts help 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 create an appropriate teambuilding design that will lead to specific results.
Work-Out Sessions: Modelled after GE's classic Work-Out process, these time-intensive sessions are designed to lead to concrete decisions and clear action plans. We are experts in helping organizations prepare for these sessions and in facilitating them to a positive conclusion.
Leader Transition/Team Start-Up Meetings: Whether you're starting up a brand-new team, or bringing a new leader into the picture, we can help you "jumpstart" the team and the leader. We help teams clarify their vision and mission, develop clear objectives, define operating norms, and build effective relationships.
