Description

This course introduces you to, and helps you apply, the 7 proven principles for building a highly effective and productive team. It includes content from my popular 1 day Team Leader training event (which cost $895 to attend).

  • Video training on the 7 principles
  • Leadership Top Tip videos
  • 8 supporting handouts
  • 2 eBooks
  • PLUS a 30 minute Skype Coaching Session (valued at $129)

The course looks at these 7 principles within the 3 critical areas of an effective team which are:

  1. Building great People,
  2. Achieving a united and clear Vision, and 
  3. Increasing the completion of the right Tasks.

This course will help you understand and apply each of the following principles:

The first area we will explore is that of People, here we look at the principles of Acceptance and Attitude:

  1. Acceptance: The principle of creating an environment of ACCEPTANCE where those in your team feel welcome, safe and accepted. When team members feel safe and welcome they are more likely to connect, engage, grow and achieve.
  2. Attitude: The principle of encouraging the right ATTITUDE, where there is a greater emphasis on the strengths and successes than on weakness and failures. When we begin with the positive (without ignoring the negative) we create a more engaging, inspiring and ultimately more effective team culture.

The second area is that of Vision, here we look at the principles of Aspiration and Actuality.

  1. Aspiration: The principle of getting to a common ASPIRATION, where there is clarity about team and personal purpose in this moment and into the future. With a transparent and agreed purpose the energy of the team increases and becomes more focused.
  2. Actuality: The principle of being clear about ACTUALITY, where we face the reality of our current situation in terms of our roles and/or responsibilities. When we take responsibility and are clear about the situation we are actually in, then we are in the place to determine how to move forward.

The third area is that of Task and here we explore the principles of Agreements, Action and Accountability.

  1. Agreements: The principle of getting to clear AGREEMENTS. When we can drill down to the ‘Who’ will do ‘What’ by ‘When’ we move from cheap talk to positioning for effective action.
  2. Action:The principle of ACTION to complete my side of my agreements. Only as we personally do what we say we will do, when we say we will do it, can we build our integrity, reputation, and lay a foundation for holding others accountable for their commitments.
  3. Accountability:The principle of ACCOUNTABILITY, of holding people to their word regarding the clear agreements they have entered into. This rare and uncomfortable skill is the key that releases people into higher levels of positive self‐regard and results in greater positive personal and team effort. The focus here is not always a successful outcome, but the application of appropriate processes and effort which in the long run create the character, skill and fertile soil out of which growth will come.

Helping Leaders Regain Leadership Joy

Have you lost your joy of leadership?Leading a team not functioning highly effectively will quickly sap the joy from any leadership role.

(Research by Ruth Wageman states that "only 21% of teams are deemed highly effective”) 
In my experience the loss of team effectiveness, and consequently leadership joy, comes from one of the three areas:
1) Dysfunctional team relationships, 
2) Loss or lack of vision.
3) Low productivity
The work I do is helping leaders regain the joy of leaders by helping you create a team with the following seven features:
1) An inclusive culture where team members feel welcome and valued. 
2) A team permeated with a positive 'can do' attitude. 
3) A team that is clear and focused on their purpose. 
4) A team that boldly faces the reality of their current situation. 
5) A team that has open, rigorous and respectful discussions about what needs to be done and who is going to do what by when. 
6) A team that has clear rules about the boundaries team members work within.
7) A team that has a culture of holding members accountable for the commitments they have made.
