We use a variety of tools to gain a better understanding of your workplace culture, to optimize training time, and to ensure our approach fits your group or organizational needs. Some of our assessments include an individual Energy Inventory, interviews with team members, the Strengthscope (with optional 360 component) the Energize10 Engagement Survey, the Team Energy Quiz, and the Strengthscope Team Report.
The “3-A Sustainable Change Model” — Awareness, Accountability and purposeful Action — is the framework for all of our programs, and the “Starter Kit” program teaches participants how to implement these steps in order to sustain any positive changes they wish to make within their team or organization. Our research also shows that success in today’s rapidly-changing marketplace requires employees to be more “connected,” “human,” and “meaningful” at work, and participants will learn how to shift their mindset to adopt this perspective during this session.
Every group has the potential for innovation; however, in our research we have found that constant change and stress are critical barriers to creating an environment that maximizes creativity. This session focuses on how to inspire the out-of-the-box thinking that is directed to a business need. We provide opportunities to unleash creative possibilities for a more dynamic, innovative, and positive work environment. Participants bring a real business challenge to the session and discover how having more fun while working energizes and fosters team spirit and unlocks the capacity for greater innovation.
This foundational strengths session delivers the crucial information needed to tap into individual strengths at work. Before the session, each participant will take the Strengthscope™ assessment tool to uncover their innate strengths and “energizers.” During the program, participants will learn specifically how to put these strengths into action on the job, helping them reengage with greater passion in their role and creating a more productive and collaborative work environment.
This advanced strengths session builds on what participants learned in Strengths Foundations to integrate a strong “strengths approach” into the teams they work with regularly. Each participant is invited to receive 360 degree feedback on how effectively they’re utilizing their strengths at work, as well as learn how to manage potential “performance risks,” including strengths in overdrive and energy drainers. During the program, participants discover how to tap into the strengths of their peers and how to form complementary partnerships in order to accelerate productivity across business units.
What makes a great team? Our research and experience shows that trust, respect, and good communication are critical to successful performing teams. Everyone on the team may not always see eye-to-eye, but still have to work together — and can learn to appreciate the value of different styles and perspectives. By applying the 3-A sustainable change model and identifying the strengths of the team using the Strengthscope™ assessment tool, team members will uncover how to work more effectively together. The Team Energy Quiz will help them see how their individual energy impacts relationships, productivity, and overall team results. During the session, participants will work on a team-related business goal and develop action steps to implement. They will also form accountability teams to encourage and sustain purposeful action.
Along with the learning track focused to meet your needs, we provide customized follow-up sessions that are designed to increase retention of information and sustained behavior change. Each track contains rigorous follow-through. Our 21-Day Energy Challenge™, built-in accountability partnerships and teams, ongoing coaching, and “Energy Kits™” delivered each quarter, are filled with practical tools to help reinforce the behavior changes your team will be making. When participants become aware, accountable, and committed to taking purposeful action the energy in your organization will shift.
