The two day off-site is the first critical engagement we provide to most of our clients. Clients leave a Table Group off-site with a very real sense that their two days away from the office was not only worthwhile, but some of the most productive, practical time they have ever spent together.
Though no two sessions are identical because they are customized to the needs of the client and its industry, a typical consulting engagement begins with a two day session drawing upon the methodologies found in "The Advantage", "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team", "The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive", and Pat Lencioni's other books.
During this fast-paced two day session, a team can expect to:
-Assess themselves against The Five Dysfunctions
-Understand and Implement the requirements of a high-performing team
-Build trust among team members
-Better understand the benefits of engaging in ideological conflict
-Create clarity around the organizations purpose, strategy, and goals
-Ensure alignment and commitment among team members
-Gain a sense of momentum, energy, and enthusiasm for the future
The Untapped Advantage of Organizational Health
From the best-selling book, The Advantage, Pat makes the overwhelming case that organizational health “will surpass all other disciplines in business as the greatest opportunity for improvement and competitive advantage.” While too many leaders are still limiting their search for advantage to conventional and largely exhausted areas like marketing, strategy and technology, Pat claims there is an untapped gold mine sitting right beneath them. Instead of trying to become smarter, he asserts that leaders and organizations need to shift their focus to becoming healthier, allowing them to tap into the more-than-sufficient intelligence and expertise they already have. He defines a healthy organization as one with minimal politics and confusion, high degrees of morale and productivity, and low turnover among good people. Drawing on his experience consulting to some of the world's leading teams and reaffirming many of the themes cultivated in his other best-sellers, Pat will reveal the four steps to achieving long-term success.
Overcoming the Five Dysfunctions of a Team
For teams that wish to avoid the natural human tendencies that can plague a team's effectiveness, our Consulting Partners can design and deliver a program around the dysfunctional model tailored to suit any team's needs.
The Ideal Team Player
As a follow-up to The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, this talk turns attention to the individual team-member, revealing the three indispensable virtues—humility, hunger and people smarts—that make some people better team players than others. Pat explores the power this combination yields, and illustrates how team members with these traits drastically accelerate the process of building high-performing teams. This approach has served as the basis for hiring and evaluation at the Table Group for the past two decades, and now offers an effective method for leaders to identify and cultivate true team players in any organization. Whether you’re a leader striving to bring about a culture of collaboration, a human resources professional looking to recruit real team players, or an employee who simply wants to make yourself a more valuable team-member, this talk will provide insights that can help you change your organization, or your career.
To assist organizations interested in creating a culture where productivity, employee fulfillment, and commitment flourish, our consultants can design and implement a program around the "The Three Signs of a Miserable Job" model.
