Group Facilitation and Action Learning Sets
How do your teams break through their barriers?
Executives spend much of their time in meetings but too often leave them with heightened feelings of frustration and a sense of worsening relations between themselves and others.
For any group at work, its coherence, functioning or performance, can be occasionally inhibited by factors including:
- the tension between wanting to be a part of the group and wanting to be seen as an individual
- power and status differences - real and imagined
- the need to be right
- the fear of being found out or saying the wrong thing
If factors like these are inhibiting the way your project, company or departmental groups collaborate, then working with them to face and overcome these issues is key to their ability to deliver your business goals.
Our aim is to provide effective tailored solutions to help bring about positive and lasting change to your work groups through facilitation; helping them to deal with the inevitable challenges of collaborating with others.
Some of the benefits from facilitation can include:
- transforming work groups into cohesive teams
- developing high performance from an existing teamwork
- producing clarity on goals and more effective delivery of outcomes
- improved relationships between individuals
- a full contribution and ownership from everyone leading to better group dynamics
- fewer and shorter meetings leading to a better use of time
An effective way of helping groups to sustain their learning and development is through Action Learning Sets (ALS). These are an effective way for a group of peers to support each other and learn from each other over time. We have highly experienced facilitators who will work with your Action Learning Sets initially and then over time the group members can learn the facilitation skills to become self-organised.
If you want to transform the relationships that are stopping the organisation functioning at its best, call us on 0845 638 1383 for an exploratory discussion or email us to outline your challenge.
