Evolving Conscious Teams

In today’s world, it is rare to be an individual contributor in the workplace. Most of us likely rely on others to get the activities in our job completed. We may think we know, but until we really understand the capabilities of the people around us, team collaboration will be difficult and we won’t be the most effective and efficient worker we can be. We all have important skills that are not captured by our formal roles and responsibilities.

Evolving Conscious Teams will provide your team with a better knowledge of themselves and others beyond, as well as within their formal, functional roles. We will work to optimize teams through understanding the nine team roles, behaviors and dialogue skills needed to get things done. Accelerating teams to a high performance cadence when doing real work towards a common purpose. Teams, not individuals, drive an organization’s results.

The on-line Belbin Team Role Self-Perception Index assessment (SPI) and Observer Assessments are required 10 business days before workshop (results of the Belbin Team Role Profile are confidential to each participant). 4hrs.

Learn how the fill handle helps you repeatedly copy the same formula across the worksheet.
