Strong individual leaders do not make up a strong LEADERSHIP TEAM. Traditionally leadership training has focused on individuals and how to make them better leaders.
While this provides a form of personal development, our ProActive ReSolutions leadership program takes a holistic approach by focusing on the LEADERSHIP TEAM. This focus is about how the individuals within the team interact to ensure people communicate effectively and champion the interests of the organization at all times.
Our Strategic Approach
The Highly Effective Leadership Team program focuses on the reality of team dynamics and interactions. It introduces the leadership team to the five key elements (Personal Responsibility, Trust, Engagement, Conflict Management, Attention to Overall Organizational Goals) required to be an effective leadership team and the four communication styles that enhance relationships and understanding within the leadership team and more widely in the workplace.
The Highly Effective Leadership Team is a robust, skills-based program that focuses on establishing a common framework of communication, behaviour and expectations within the context of your leadership team’s real-world challenges.
In order to ground our program in the current context of your leadership team, our first step is to understand the challenges and opportunities the team faces. We conduct one-on-one interviews with each member of the team to get a 360° view of the team and its members.
Establishing Principles, Practices, and Tools
Following our assessment, the next step works on establishing a common framework of understanding between leaders and the tools that ensure everyone is approaching problems and challenges within that common framework.
Creating the Right Mindset
With a clear understanding of the Principles, Practices, and Tools, our consultants then work with the leadership team to create the right mindset required to have successful interactions and behaviours. What’s important in these discussions is understanding and avoiding the trap of the Victim, Villain, and Hero roles so often used as explanatory frameworks.
Building Team Dynamics and Committing to Action
The Highly Effective Leadership Team is focused on building team dynamics and gaining commitment to action by engaging in behaviours related to personal responsibility, understanding different communication styles, and understanding the five key elements of team dynamics.
Following the session, each team member receives one-on-one coaching support to help implement new skills and resolve specific challenges.
