TEAM ALIGNMENT

Overview

Even when we stand side by side and look in the same direction, every person on your team takes in their OWN sample of information presented by their surroundings.

 

… Some see things we don’t see

… Some know things we don’t know

 

This can be particularly challenging to navigate, especially when you need to work TOGETHER to achieve a successful outcome.

 

Handled naively, this can lead to confusion and conflict as we communicate past each other.

 

Handled with insight into our different responses, we can build a richer view of the challenges and opportunities in front of us.

 

The pace of information transfer and the decision speed you need to compete isn’t possible with outdated management bromides.  You need an advanced understanding of how you all manage and transfer information.

 

So how can you get your team in alignment?  How can you manage and synchronize individual assets to achieve greater success?

 

This workshop is going to challenge your team to think in new ways, embrace differences, and foster new paradigms for information management and transfer and group decision making.

 

In this workshop you will learn... 

  • Self-understanding: How you manage and transfer information

  • Setting expectations: Manage expectations for how you will receive and offer information to your team

  • Multi-contextual communication:  Specific techniques for making information stick

  • Team Dynamics:  To bring disparate views into alignment without compromise or negation of differences

  • Motivation:  Discussions that capture information into coherent structures and drive next actions

FORMAT

Prerequisite:  The Focus Survey

The industry’s most advanced measurement conveying the underlying cognitive drivers of your attention, energy, and time. This is the foundation for all your work  (15-20 minutes)

 

Lesson 1:  Profile overview

When the Focus Survey is complete, teams share the results with each other and with the GTD® Focus leaders for a dynamic and in-person engagement uncovering your comparative advantages. We’ll unpack the processes that drive your attention, energy, and relationship with time.

Lesson 2:  Team dynamics

​The leader will start with exercises that are paradigm examples of each process, then will draw out real and actionable examples from your group dynamics. The goal is to identify the points of conflict that emerge dynamically from our differences, in order to manage them candidly and objectively as opportunities.

Lesson 3: Application

The final engagement is focused on leveraging your insights into each others information management and transfer processes into specific tactics for improving your meetings, communicating more effectively, to assess your customers’ needs more personally, and to support each other’s work flow.
