Every team goes through its own journey of trust, effectiveness, and excellence. Our team of facilitators works with you to understand the challenges you face and customize an approach to help your team ascend to the next level.
We can help facilitate: Staff Retreats and Off-sites, Leadership Development, Board of Directors Meetings, L&D Trainings and Strategic Thinking.
The strength, dynamics, health, and efficiency of your teams have a direct impact on business outcomes. Teams who trust each other and believe in the organization are more engaged. Engaged employees stay longer, champion the organization both internally and externally, report significantly higher levels of job satisfaction, and produce results.
According to Gallup, engaged employees have a 21% higher profitability rate than those with low engagement. All groups are made up of complex individuals, and we are living during incredibly complex times. Teams need more direction than ever around how to grow in their ability to trust each other, handle conflict productively, hold each other accountable to their commitments, and develop the soft skills and emotional intelligence required to handle it all with the tact and effectiveness. All of these elements are part of the bigger picture of employee engagement. The ROI of prioritizing healthy teams is significant and comes through saved time, innovative thinking and breakthroughs, increased productivity, and realized efficiencies.
You can! And sometimes it's the right choice because you have an SME or a particularly skilled insider. But in most cases, bringing an outside facilitator into your organization can make a big impact and create movement quickly. A skilled, empathetic, and curious facilitator can move a team quickly through conversations that might take months to address if handled internally or (more likely) not be handled at all.
Some scenarios that are best handled by a skilled external facilitator: sticky or controversial issues, when creating neutrality or a congenial environment is important, when an objective or unattached voice is needed, or when the facilitator is providing the framework and expertise required.
