Workshops with the Leadership Team provides the opportunity to review the business strategy, objectives and competencies which would inform the Leadership competencies and behaviours as identified by the organisation. The workshops also provide an opportunity for Leaders to define their roles and responsibilities in the organisation as leaders and how they drive the business forward, encouraging employee engagement and high performance, especially through change and possible uncertainty, and shape the culture of the organisation.
The workshops are highly participative using a coaching approach with the group to facilitate the agreed specific objectives.
It is recommended that the approach for the Leadership Team workshop needs to include the following elements:
The following interventions can be utilised in meeting these outcomes:
A fact finding exercise with all leaders to establish current views on what is going well in the team and what is not, what needs to be delivered differently and what learning points have they identified over the last 12 months. Questions will be around the current position and development needs in order to achieve the vision for the leadership team.
Send pre work for strategy session to each leader to identify what they believe to be the 5-7 key performance indicators for their team and their function. KPIs should be linked to the strategy documents and relate to both the team and their functional areas.
Facilitated sessions delivered to discuss the vision and key performance indicators for the leadership team.
One-to-one coaching sessions to support individual leaders and their development needs. The coach can equip leaders to deal with the challenges of their roles in order to increase their performance and that of the organisation.
This will allow individuals an opportunity to see how others see them in comparison to how they see themselves. It will create the avenue for healthy introspection and better self-awareness.
A psychometric tool that shows how personal development is the critical first step to high performance team working. The profile, completed individually, looks at where members’ motivation lies, how they can best contribute to team success and how they are likely to lead, manage and link with others who may have different perspectives on the world of work. It can be used for personal development, with managers and leaders, but is at its most powerful when used to build and sustain high energy teams.
