Leadership and Team Effectiveness
HIGHBAR UNLEASHES LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL BY FOCUSING ON THE TEAM AND THE INDIVIDUAL.
The capacity of any one individual on a leadership team to make an impact on an organization is dependent upon the capacity and effectiveness of their team. Most leadership development programs - even group or cohort programs - focus specifically on assisting individuals in development as effective leaders. Likewise, most leadership team effectiveness work focuses on the team entity, but not typically on the capability of each individual on the team to contribute based on their own capacity to lead.
BUILDING GREATER CONNECTION AMONG TEAM MEMBERS SETS THE STAGE FOR ENHANCED PERFORMANCE.
At the team level, HighBar partners to align goals, roles, and team processes for decision-making, planning, communication, and conflict management. At the individual level, HighBar helps leaders increase awareness of their impact on others so that they can be most productive as team members.
A typical engagement includes:
Assess the individual’s and the team’s current leadership profile: This assessment forms a foundation of self-awareness and common language that sets the stage for more objective communication and understanding among team members.
Conduct dynamic and engaging team workshops: Designed for the specific needs of each individual team, HighBar weaves stimulating individual development content and practice into the broader work of defining or realigning the team, and doing “real work.” Sometimes challenging, usually fun, and always high energy this work deepens relationships among team members, and builds greater connection. That connection becomes the secret sauce.
We have seen firsthand that teams in which individuals have greater individual awareness and deeper connections also have higher engagement, capacity for, and commitment to achieving team results. In other words, they are high-performing teams. These team members get greater satisfaction from their work and colleague interactions.
