Looking for a Team Building Workshop
for your offsite team meeting that will be FUN
and yet resolve the "Communication Issue"?

Has your group said, “The number one danger in achieving our goals or vision is communication. or "We have a communication problem.", but no one can tell you what it is?
Are projects falling behind? Could this be because people are playing “The Blame Game” (people blaming one another) or doing end runs around management in what we like to call the "The Mutinous Environment"?

Does management believe the group needs to make a “Big Shift” and get back on track and start working as a high performance team again?
In summary did you get asked to find something to solve these problems,  and oh by the way make sure it is FUN?
If you said "Yes" to one or more of the above then you are on the right website, because this is exactly the type of teams we turn around.
A commonly held belief is that a typical team building workshops will solve all these problems; however, most times they focus ONLY on "how" people communicate.

While these workshops are good and do produce some results; they do NOT produce the "Big Shift" management is looking for!

To understand why you must first understand there are two types of communication problems.

The first and most commonly addressed is the "how" it was said. Which is addressed by every team building and communication workshop and does produce some results.

People can consciously change how they communicate when they take the time to consider how the recipient prefers to receive the message. However, in times of stress or when working quickly they will most likely communicate how they naturally communicate which will most likely not be the preference of the recipient. This is why communication workshops produce some results, some of the time.

The second and often overlooked communication problem is to be able to identify what has not been said. This is typically the root behind the statement about not being able to achieve the goals/vision because of communication, and usually the reason behind “The Blame Game” and “Mutinous Environment”.

The solution is to learn some new communication techniques that we have developed to combat this exact problem.

Three of these Tools that attendees learn are:

  • The 4 Levels of Authority™
  • The 10 Conditions of Ownership™
  • 10 Tips for reducing conflict
  • and many more...
These communication tools and the management techniques can be used to improve the everyday types of communication like emails, voicemails. These tools are exceptionally handy with cross-functional project plans in clarifying who is doing exactly what, and how by when.

For example, one reason things don’t get done is because people believe they can give ownership. The common expression everyone has heard is “Well I gave so and so ownership.” The real question is, “Did the person who was given the ownership reach out and take it?”

Most times the answer is no. The reason the answer is no is because one or more of "The 10 Conditions of Ownership" was violated. You cannot give ownership away, but you can setup the situation so that someone will be interested in taking it.

In fact often the one attempting to give ownership is the one standing in the way!

These communication tools also help with negotiating up and down within an organization, and clarifying expectations with external members of a project team.

This team building meeting and communication workshop solution has worked well for other people just like you that have expressed their issue as “communication”.
