Workshops

I run facilitated workshops on communication, marketing, problem-solving, strategy and team building to help your team become more effective. Tell me what your team’s challenges are, and I’ll design a workshop to enable them to think, learn and solve problems together.

I’m also an accredited Belbin Team Roles trainer. I can work with your team to help them understand their own team roles and each others’, to explore their different strengths and ultimately, to work together more effectively.

problem-iconThe problem

The team’s manager identified a number of areas for improvement:

  • overall teamwork
  • taking ownership of their work
  • feeling authoritative enough to solve their own problems
  • sharing calls effectively

workshop-icon-2The workshop

I designed an all-day workshop for them in which the team:

  • explored differences in the team members’ behaviours and working practices
  • performed individual SWOT analyses to see how to better exploit their strengths
  • examined the realities of what was happening with team calls and what the issues were
  • worked together to come up with possible solutions, drawing on their different strengths
  • chose their favourite ideas and decided which they could start implementing immediately

Comments from attendees:

“Really enjoyed it, lots of good points for discussion and creative thinking – I also understand my team now!”

“What was most useful about the event: getting to know how others think/work and why they are like that.”
