TRAINING DAY 1: COLLABORATION
Setting the foundations for collaborative genius.
Neuroscience of Collaboration
Identify the essential principles of collaboration, the neuroscience behind each and which principles to focus on to improve how your team works and achieves together.
Leverage Diverse Thinking
People think differently, and so channel that diversity into creativity – and away from conflict – via a simple set of team agreements and coaching questions.
Avoid collaboration dynamics that operate on a win-lose or harsh exchange basis. Instead establish collaborative relationships based on setting each other up to succeed and delivering on practical needs.
Tool: Executive Summary Stand-Up Tool
Take this comms tool back to your team to get everybody on the same page quickly and effectively. Increase focus, cohesion and the cross-pollination of ideas.
TRAINING DAY 2: SOLUTION-FOCUS
Focus your team on what’s possible and resolve what’s not working.
Setting a Team Solution Focus
Understand what neuroscience has taught us about solution focus and reflect in how you lead your team and what you expect from them.
Structure team meetings to focus on solutions and avoid getting derailed by detail and drama. Master the art of facilitation to make meetings more meaningful and achieve positive outcomes.
Tool: The Six-Step Solution Process
Learn the ‘Six-step Solution Process’ to enable creative problem-solving, engage the collective-brain and get to solutions faster.
TRAINING DAY 3: PERFORMANCE
Don’t leave performance to chance, plan for peak performance
Peak Performance Planning
Measure your team against six key focus areas that are crucial for peak-performance, and design real-world strategies to lift performance where needed.
With a focus on delivery, use a tool from sports psychology to identify interference and then game-plan to remove it.
Tool: Performance Feedback
Take the sting out of performance feedback and use a light structure for the tougher conversations, where your team take the lead on making improvements.
TRAINING DAY 4: CHANGE
Lead change, avoid drift and have everyone in the Waka
Communicate to Create Certainty
With change comes uncertainty. Learn key principles to offset that uncertainty and communicate to build trust and momentum.
Tool: Known Unknowns
Navigate and lead your team through times of change by facilitating the ‘Known Unknowns’ exercise. Establish common knowledge and set actions to get through change and safeguard performance.
When leading change, align how you think with what you say and do, to deliberately model the right kind of change behaviours.
Present the case for change via a communication model grounded in neurolinguistics. Share your vision of what could be, the value and road to getting there. Invite curiosity and enrol your team.
