    • Introducing Resilience

      In a world that constantly throws us curveballs and challenges, the ability to lead resilient teams has never been more crucial. The ability to adapt, bounce back, and thrive in the face of adversity separates successful teams from those that crumble under pressure. 

       

      So why is leading resilient teams a game-changer in today's fast-paced world? Consider this: market conditions shift overnight, technologies become obsolete, unexpected crises emerge, and the global workforce evolves rapidly.

    • Psychological Safety and Trust

      Psychological safety refers to individuals’ perception that they can express themselves without fear of negative consequences, such as rejection or ridicule. In project teams, psychological safety is critical to team performance and success.

      Psychologically safe project teams are those in which team members feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, ideas, and concerns without fear of negative consequences. They feel their contributions are valued, and they can make mistakes without punishment.

    • Understanding Organisational Culture

      Organisational culture is all about the shared values and beliefs that guide the behaviour of team members. Communication plays a critical role in shaping this culture, as effective communication helps build trust, alignment, and engagement. Leaders are super important too, since their behaviour and communication set the tone for the rest of the organization's interactions - like how it handles conflict, direction, and consultation.

    • Effective Teams

      The importance of understanding teams

      In the modern workplace, teams are a fundamental unit of organizational structure, with individuals coming together to work collaboratively towards shared goals. While there are many types of teams, two common forms are regular and project teams. Regular teams are long-standing groups of individuals who work together continuously to accomplish a particular function within the organization. On the other hand, project teams are formed for a specific purpose.

      The Importance of Clear Goals & Roles

      Tue, Nov 21, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM UTC

    Modules

    • Clear Roles and Goals

      Achieving success in any endeavour requires a clear and well-defined set of goals. Clarity of goals provides a roadmap that guides individuals and teams towards their desired destination. Whether in personal life, business, or any other area, understanding the importance of clarity in setting goals is crucial for making progress and maintaining focus.

    • Supportive Leadership in Remote and Hybrid Environments

      We need to understand how hybrid teams and remote teams can agree on how they make decisions, the norms and rules, what the rituals are, and their central purpose. When you're working remotely, so much of your time is self-managed and self-motivating that you need to understand the team's mission, and as a leader, that's part of your supportive role.

      Effective Coaching's Impact on Individual, Team & Organisational Performance

      Thu, Nov 30, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM UTC

    Modules

    • Strengths-based Development and Roles

      Effective leaders foster a culture of continuous learning and growth. They encourage their team to embrace challenges, learn from failures, and develop their skills and capabilities. They lead by example and actively seek opportunities for personal and professional development. In developing people and teams, we get much more out of the money we invest in training if we are putting it into building on the capacity that is already there, building onto things that people feel make them strong.

    • Developmental Leaders

      Developmental Leaders build resilient teams with an ongoing cycle of Engaging, Enabling, Encouraging, and Evaluating (continuous feedback).

    • Adaptability and Flexibility

      One of the key aspects of adaptability and flexibility is the willingness to adjust strategies and plans when necessary. Resilient teams understand that not all strategies will yield the desired results, and they are willing to pivot and make necessary changes to achieve their goals. They regularly assess their progress, gather feedback, and make informed decisions about the best course of action.

    • Coaching and Mentoring for Resilience

      The CREW coach approach involves guiding your team members in analysing the challenges they bring to you for discussion. We assist as well as transfer capabilities on how to aid individuals in their thought processes when dealing with their immediate issues. Team members are empowered to tackle their issues, to help others develop the skill, and deploy it in team problem-solving.
