Grow the right group
With the pace of work at an all-time high, leaders often overlook the importance of ensuring that their teams are galvanized and focused around a collective mission. The composition of groups and teams can shift rapidly creating the need to fortify relationships and revisit priorities on a regular basis. To address these realities, we offer a structured teambuilding design that is focused and practical – and an enjoyable change of pace. Because we understand the challenges that teams typically face, we help them diagnose and remedy issues in the following broad areas: goal setting and direction, change management, communication, personality styles, and shared values and norms. Whether you are the leader of a newly formed team or the leader of a mature team that needs a tune-up, a retreat can jumpstart your efforts to ensure that your team is operating at its peak capacity and able to accomplish its goals and objectives with minimal distraction.
A small private Human Services Agency that services special needs individuals brought Laser Focus Leadership Solutions in to identify key issues impeding the Executive Staff overall effectiveness, and to support the development of a plan forward. We began by interviewing Executive members to better understand their personal experience on this level and followed up by facilitating discussions and conducting teambuilding exercises to address the issues that emerged.
Additionally, we assisted the Executive staff, in revisiting its structure and composition and identified key actions to ensure the Executive staff remained on target for the current year's goals and objectives. Overall, the retreat was a celebrated success, allowing the Executive staff to regroup and refocus their time and efforts in a direction that would help ensure longer-term success for the school they so passionately supported.
