The face of Australian business is changing. There are new challenges that are more complex than ever before and this requires a different approach to team development. Some of the challenges we are hearing from our clients include a need for true collaboration, an ability to deal with complex change and lead through others, a stronger ability to partner with stakeholders, thinking with a global mindset while acting locally.
We work with high performing teams who are interested and curious in developing themselves . In today’s business world, most leadership teams are dealing with complex challenges that cannot be solved the traditional way. We have found using a Collaborative Leadership approach helps individuals and teams thrive in challenging environments. It is being able, both individually and collectively, to take on the gradual but meaningful process of adaptation. It is about diagnosing the essential from the expendable and bringing about a real challenge to the status quo.
Our approach to building high performing teams is using our collaborative leadership model where the team develops its own capacity and capability at an individual and a team level to solve complex leadership challenges that bring real change to the status quo. It is about mobilising people to tackle tough challenges and thrive. Complex challenges can only be addressed through changes in people’s priorities, beliefs, habits and loyalties. Progress requires going beyond any authoritative expertise to mobilize discovery, tolerating losses, and generating the new capacity to thrive anew – this is different to the traditional view that authority rests with the leader.
In pragmatic terms, we will work with you around four key areas:
(which may include 360 interviews, data gathering, workshop) – we will partner with you to dig deep to get a handle on the real issues that are facing your team and what success could look like.
We will skill up your team to observe team dynamics, individual systems and the organisational system so you are empowered to do your own work.
Interpreting what you are observing (developing multiple hypotheses). This allows you to stay open and curious to the data that is presented within the system.
We will create a holding environment to mobilise the team by using questions, ideas, frameworks, live projects which will raise the heat in the system to elevate the system to work in different, more effective ways.
