Team Development and Facilitation
CLC can help your team create extraordinary results by supporting you as you create a shared, aspirational vision, and communicate with care, courage and candor. You’ll learn how to turn difficult conversations into transformational opportunities, how to use conflict as a springboard to create new possibilities, how to leverage each other’s strengths, and how to hold each other accountable so you can reach—and even exceed—your goals.
In today’s workplace, almost everything gets done in collaboration with others as a team.
Invariably, challenges arise from the team dynamic. These can often be resolved by:
- Creating a shared vision
- Clarifying roles and aligning goals
- Learning how to appreciate and capitalize on differences in style and approach
- Being willing and able to have important, transformational conversations
- Ensuring accountability
- Creating the trust necessary for teams to thrive
Often, meetings aren’t as productive as we’d like them to be. An outside facilitator can help plan and run effective meetings so participants maximize the use of their meeting time and get the results they need.
Clients benefit from having a professional facilitator when:
- The team has no clear leader
- All participants need to focus on content vs. process
- There is conflict, expressed or not
- Trust is low
- The group often gets off track, misses deadlines, fails to make decisions
- There are difficult personalities or disruptive behavior
- Consensus must be reached
- Follow through needs to be assured
- The leader or other members have a strong vested interested in a particular position and are not open to considering differing points of view
- The team needs to be energized
- There is no one on the team who has an understanding of group process and/or facilitation expertise
"To get to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of the culture, which depends on the quality of relationships, which depends on the quality of conversations. Everything happens through conversations." ~ Judith E. Glaser
