Whether it’s a high-stakes RFP, a missed deadline, or a leadership stalemate, the underlying issue of every organisational challenge is team dynamics. In our training, leaders and teams learn to see the motives and strengths at play in the relationships that need to thrive and drive the business. To build stronger relationships in full view of their differences, people learn to adjust their approach and use their full range of strengths to become high-performing together.
Core Strengths training takes complex strengths and motives and makes them tangible skills that can be mastered. The Results through Relationships workshop uses rich visuals to graph relationships and create candid discussion. This visualisation is powerful. With a clear view to one another’s core motives, including how those motives change in conflict, teams can chart the interplay of their relationship dynamics and create an action plan for addressing a real-life challenge that the team faces.
This open, positive communication and planning allows teams to leverage the different perspectives at the table and de-escalate conflict.
Whether delivered in a one-day format or using multiple virtual sessions, our training builds the skills people need to:
Master strengths – Learn how to express views and be heard by people whose motives are different from yours. Choosing the right strength for the moment changes everything.
Correct perceptions – Understanding why people focus on particular issues helps develop the ability to listen and incorporate multiple points-of-view to the benefit of group decision-making.
Stay focused on what matters – In high-stakes situations, substantive discussion can quickly shift into personal attacks. Learning how people react to conflict and identifying warning signs early keeps conversations productive.
Embrace differences – Gaining perspective on what motivates your leader and other members of your team embeds a culture of appreciation, which increases individual commitment to achieving shared outcomes.
Even the most highly skilled and well-intentioned workers can fall short when it comes to productively working together. And when people are unable to build on each other’s strengths or overcome differences, it can prevent your organisation from reaching that next level of success.
