Phase 1:

Phase 1 focuses on building individual and team awareness by giving employees the tools and information to understand themselves and how to leverage their strengths in the workplace.  

Our four-part series focuses on understanding how your team currently performs, how team members think and behave, the cognitive diversity of your team, and how to engage this learning to connect and perform better together.

Why this module?

Learn what it means to be a team and explore how YOUR team behaves through interactive problem-solving activities. This important foundational session begins the process of getting to know yourself, connecting with each other, and understanding the link between individual behaviours and overall team performance.

What you get:

  • Fun & engaging shared experiences
  • Chance for team members to connect and build relationships
  • Recognize the teams current strengths and areas for improvement
  • Identify individual goals & action items

How we do it:

This session is a unique blend of foundational team training, with on-your-feet team building initiatives where team members are tasked to overcome challenges through working together. Engaging discussion and reflection helps team members understand what happened during activities, why did that happen, and how can their learning be applied?

Questions we explore:

  • What are teams? How do they behave? How do you build a team?
  • What are important team characteristics? How do these look in your team right now?
  • How do you show up in this team? What are you doing well and how can you improve?

Why this module?

Research shows the most successful professionals are those with a deep understanding of themselves; what are their inherent strengths, why do they think and behave the way they do, and how do they zero in on the important aspects of their unique personalities?

What you get:

  • Understand the science behind how you think & behave
  • Clarity around your natural strengths & how to leverage them
  • Insight into the perception of others and how to improve your relationships
  • Identify your 1% Commitment; what will you do to improve your overall performance?

Questions we explore:

  • What is Emergenetics and how will we use it to enhance our awareness & performance?
  • What are my strengths? How do others perceive me?
  • Why are some tasks or people easy to deal with and others more challenging?

Why this module?

Building on your improved self awareness, this session helps team members understand the similarities and differences in how they think & behave. With this  awareness, team members can adapt their behavior to be more effective with others. Through honoring and respecting their diversity, teams will develop strong & trusting relationships.

What you get:

  • Deepen your awareness & understanding of your personal strengths
  • Explore how your profiles interact with those of your team members

Phase 2:

Phase 2 focuses on the elements that drive a truly collaborative team; a team that not only works together but thinks together! 

Our five-part series is designed to mirror workplace scenarios; drawing on situations, conversations, and skills applicable to your team’s themes and barriers. This phase builds on the awareness gained in phase 1 and challenges teams to turn knowledge into action and improved behaviors into habits.

Team members will experience firsthand the power of a collaborative team, which leverages cognitive diversity to a company’s advantage. It also encourages team members to appreciate their teammates and their innate strengths while identifying ways to utilize each other’s strengths to improve performance

A  recent study on team performance, by Google, found that effective Team Norms had the biggest impact on the team’s long-term success. 

In this session, teams develop mutually agreed operating norms that will set expectations, guide daily behaviors and shape the desired team culture. Teams explore accountability and how to hold each other to a higher standard. 

This session takes a deeper look at the fundamentals of great teamwork. It includes fun & interactive problem-solving initiatives that focus on collaboration, communication, leadership, and strategic thinking.

Participants will explore their current team dynamics and how they approach tasks, work through problems, and react to challenges. Team members will reflect on how their day to day performance can improve.

Technology is disrupting the workplace.
We are disrupting teams.

Technology has disrupted the way teams work together, making team building, as we know it, no longer relevant in today’s workplace. Teams need to come together, not by combining individual efforts, but by working collectively as equals.

Team Collaboration has replaced Team Building. Collaborative teams statistically are more engaged and achieve greater success for businesses. Collaborators have to trust & respect each other and
engage in negotiations toward a final product. Collaboration itself
plays to an individual’s strengths and ultimately, to greater team performance and output.
