Forming the management team

Focus and flow in management teams need to be maintained and renewed in the face of day-to-day operational pressures. For that the team needs a shared overall perspective of what is happening and what the results really are. Based on that, the team can practice dialogue on alternatives, and train applying the values of working together that really count. It is imperative to build a common picture out of existing perceptions and experiences, moving beyond the data.

Moving out of the doldrums

Sometimes a management team feels that nothing is progressing. It seems impossible to put the truly decisive points on the agenda because these have become increasingly undiscussable  and even the fact that this is happening cannot be addressed. Here is where the presence of neutral facilitator can help build a common perception of the situation. This alone will free energy, enabling participants to focus on the challenges facing the business and open the flow of work steps.

Survey and management dialogue as a leadership process

Employee surveys can be instrumental in increasing the impact of leadership. Often, surveys are deployed without a commitment to a consistent management follow-up, Surveys should target a comprehensible question for the organization. Then, the process of evaluating and interpreting the findings is as important as generating the data. Surveys without a transparent dialogue about the results and conclusions will be a barrier to engagement and are prone to creating cynicism instead of engagement.
