Teams and Groups
Our coaching and facilitation support group decision making using structured workshops that enhance creativity and collaboration, manage conflicts and complexities, identify and clarify ambiguities, and achieve the desired results in less time and effort.
When tailored workshops for a team, we work hand in hand with each individual team members to understand their points of view and priorities. This will allow us to prepare the workshop structure and develop effective frame to discuss issue and problem. The streamlining of the workshop will allow effective collaboration and out of the box thinking to identify potential options and scenarios, reach an agreed for solutions, and develop implementation plans.
A global investment bank experienced a rapid deterioration in the quality and consistency of product information arriving from different business units and regions. In facelifted workshops, the client team develop an Information Management strategy. The team defined and implemented an effective method for timely accessing enterprise-wide information, resulting in more accurate reporting and faster decision-making.
A national consumer finance organization experienced a drop in market share and erosion in profit margins. In facelifted workshops with the CEO and his direct reports, the team identified and introduced a company-wide, multi-tier improvement program. A key outcome was that each direct report identified the initiatives they are able to support and together agreed on the collaboration effort required for the success of the program.
Our individual decision coaching helps decision makers manage uncertainties and complexities, identify and clarify ambiguities, define and properly frame issues and simulate and assess potential outcome of solution options.
When planning workshops with individual decision makers the techniques may include management style assessment, game theory and strategic decision-making principles to understand stakeholders’ impact, and identify the most effective brainstorming methods.
Individual Decision Coaching Example:
A new CIO of a multi-national developer and producer of health care products needed to improve the alignment between the Information Technology and the business units it supported. In facilitated workshops with people from the technology and the business units create an agreed upon effective process and organization structure to align and govern the decision-making process.
