How to understand your team

Build a better hybrid team

Team development

The variable nature of the work of teams and the mixture of personalities from outgoing to reserved creates a challenging environment. This challenge can be mitigated by improving mutual understanding and providing a common language for strengths, communication, and behaviour.

Work together better

This workshop is designed for new or intact teams who need to accelerate their success. It uses the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS-ii) - a tool that has been used by over 30 million people worldwide to learn about their personality. With a better awareness of their own temperament from KTS-ii, participants improve their awareness of others and develop the flexibility to adapt and connect better.

Teams participating in this workshop report higher levels of trust and cohesion; improved collaboration; increased productivity; and greater job satisfaction.

Training that teaches you and your team techniques that are:

  • Simple: No blinding with science or theory here -just straightforward stuff that works, 
  • Memorable: With acronyms that make sense, things become easier to remember,
  • Useable: The aim is that you can implement what you learn within a day of learning it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help my team?

Yes. Good for you for caring enough to ask. Email me with the title “Team” and I’ll get in touch with ideas. That could range from short webinars spread over a few weeks to an all-day course.

What would training cost?

1:1 coaching starts at £150 for 90 minutes.

All-day courses at £1800.

Webinars start from £450 depending on duration and numbers. All prices excl VAT.

What if I want more personalised help?

Reply to one of my messages and put “Help” in the title, and we'll arrange to talk. Solutions could range from 1:1 coaching to a webinar, course or just a copy of The Resilience Toolkit. Get in touch today.

What format training do you offer?

I provide training in the most useful format for you. That could be face-to-face or virtual. When virtual, I've found it best to split content across 2 or 3 sessions, as 6 hours on-line isnt the best for really learning anything! You also learn more when the sessions are spread out.

Process

After an initial discussion about your specific requirements, I will create a short outline of a proposed course or programme, including costs. When you agree to proceed on this basis, we will set a date/time and location for the workshop(s) and I will generate a formal quote to enable you to provide a purchase order number. Email confirmation of the booking will be taken as binding. Terms and Conditions are available on request - including cancellation terms.

What tools do you use?

With the 2020 lockdown due to COVID-19, I had to migrate quickly from front-of-room training to completely online delivery. One of the first things was a way to make it really interactive. I adopted ‘Poll Everywhere’ for live polling, 'Mural' for live white boarding, and 'GiraffePad' as my online learning environment.
