The High Performing Team Journey

Raise your top management team to the highest level

Insights

Our unique programme covers four crucial axes: team mission, team spirit, team building and team working. By using a holistic, balanced approach we alternate workshop sessions with interactive training, as well as individual and collective coaching. On the High Performing Team Journey you: 

  • increase mutual understanding about your team mission and responsibilities,
  • create a mutually accountable team on a common purpose, a collective code of conduct that also becomes a strong role model,
  • define an effective modus operandi and also stimulate ‘one to one‘ collaboration, in line with the team’s priorities and projects, 
  • connect successful often individualistic high-level executives by building on their strengths and compensating their limitations.

Duration and content is flexible, based on priorities identified during the first day. The sessions comprise hard and soft topics that include a mix of on and off the job collaboration linked to day-to-day situations lived by the team, individual and collective interactions with active observation and short and sweet, one page written outputs.

Who's it for

Leaders (CEOs) together with their executive teams (EXCOM)

Benefits

  • ‘Hard’ takeaways: Written co-created outputs : change and strategy scan / shared priorities and projects / roadmaps / team mission / code of conduct / typical agenda and golden rules for meetings / governance / roles and responsibilities / team maturity and leadership style / personal action plans / ‘deep dive‘ in trust components.
  • ‘Soft’ takeaways: New behaviours developed by team members : both collective (e.g. apply other decision-making modes, deal with tensions, speak with one voice and bridge multi-cultural gaps) and individual (e.g. give and receive feedback, and communicate in a positive way).

This training is currently only offered as part of our customised solutions.
