December 11-12 + January 15-16 (2020)
What can I get out of participating in the training?
You will develop the skills needed for your team to become more independent. You’ll notice the team becoming more dynamic, initiatives and suggestions will spring up and drive the team forward. Participation and commitment will come from the team without you having to do anything, giving you more time for the work that matters most to you.
A potent way to turn ineffective teams and unconducive working climates into functional and effective ones.
I’ve learnt a lot about how I influence my group’s behaviour. If I take a step back, they automatically take a step forward.
Through the training you will discover:
- How to read the working climate in a group and shift it from undesirable to high functioning
- How to support a team to move forward when it gets stuck
- How to support a team to transform conflicts
- How to talk about loaded issues in a group
- How to give far-reaching powers to the group without abdication
- How to facilitate discussions about operational issues by asking questions that move things forward
- How to facilitate collaborative decision-making
The course consists of four days of intensive training, led by one of our certified leadership coaches. It begins with two consecutive days where you continue to explore a coaching leadership and mindset, but now in relation to a group. After about a month, when you have practiced your new abilities at home, you build on these two days with more advanced techniques and in-depth training. Included in the price is a 30-minute coaching conversation with a Tuff coach one month after the course is completed.
The training is designed to develop the mindset and abilities needed for your team to become more self-managed. You’ll explore how to relate to teams in a coaching way, how to shift the working climate, how to facilitate the team to take responsibility, and how to lead effective and involving meetings. Key to this is training in various challenging group situations to get a sense of your default reactions and how your way of being profoundly influences the group’s effectiveness. You’ll get a wealth of new tools and practices that you can apply directly. The training is based on a methodology developed by Tuff Leadership Training over more than twenty years and promises to deliver lasting results.
A very rewarding course that gave me tools to elevate myself from being a ‘normal’ manager to being one who gives the right feedback, who coaches for change, and who turns the group dynamic in a direction that benefits the business.
It was terribly difficult looking into yourself and acknowledging your faults, but at the same time it was incredibly useful and important to undergo the process!
