"Found the content fun, inspiring and enlightening"
Jo Page, Head of Housing & Sales, Tuntum Housing Association
"Great for equipping me with tools to facilitate a session to build the trust in an evolving team"
Katy Snell, Group Head of People, Emerald Publishing
My mission is to equip you (team leaders, managers, leads, heads of, etc) with the skills, tools and confidence to be able to develop your own team. I want to teach you to run workshop, exercises and tasks with your team in order to see sustainable results and changes that you can make stick. My workshop sessions include plenty of interactivity and discussion so that you can give your team members a voice and agree actions together.
Why is trust important?
Trust is the foundation that a team is built on. Once you have trust in place you can achieve understanding, open discussions, commitment, and team success.
How will trust help my team be cohesive?
Once you have trust in your team, you'll begin to develop a whole host of other things like people talking openly, sharing their thoughts and being able to have team discussions where views are expressed and then a way forwards chosen that the whole team can get behind. This isn't a quick process and you'll need to continue to develop your team, but Trust is the base of all that can come next.
I'm scared to talk about trust with my team!
Sounds like you really need to then! If you're scared because it might open a can of worms, it's probably a can of worms that needs opening and sorting through. It might be tricky at first, but stay calm, let people have their say and sumarise discussions. Think about the alternative; letting it fester until things get even worse...
Why would I want to deliver the session myself rather than bring someone else in to do it?
You know your team best; you know who's quiet and who's going to be the first to speak up, you know who's confident and who needs encouragement. You can use this knowledge to make sure everyone has their say at the session. By delivering it yourself you can take the conversations forwards into your day to day work after leaving the session. You can refer back to the discussions and agreements and encourage your team to keep moving forwards.
I've never facilitated anything before!
Don't worry! The main role of a facilitator is to deliver information, explain activities and encourage discussion. If you've ever been in a meeting, you've probably already used some of these skills. The role of a facilitator is not to have all the answers, it's to ask good questions and allow people to talk it through. The first time might be a little scary, but you'll be fine. And future sessions will get easier and easier!
What else might help me get ready to deliver?
If you're the kind of person who likes to talk things through and really understand the detail then a coaching session may help you. A coaching session would consist of an hours session to talk through the content further, answer any questions you have and work towards getting you ready to deliver your session.
