The genesis of the our Senior Leadership Team, Programme came through our work in the highly pressurised Olympic environment and has now evolved into one of our most successful programmes which we deliver across both elite sport and business environments.
The aim of Programme is to develop a high performance team which consistently creates an environment that enables world class performance under pressure.
Programme Outline (3 workshops)
Exploration of individual purpose (values/motives) and leadership style (influences/behaviours).
Provide insight into high performance team dynamics and team performance factors to strengthen team cohesion and inspire culture of delivering excellence under pressure
Promote ‘team confidence’ and ‘ self confidence’ - respect for each other’s strengths and understanding of how best to appropriately support and challenge in a pressure environment.
Develop greater understanding of factors influencing your team’s performance and motivation. Understand the effect of pressure on the way in which we think and behave.
Develop understanding of individual and team cognitive (thinking) styles through One Smart World Profiling tool.
High performing teams collaborate effectively and have learned to think together to work out solutions under pressure. We use the One Smart World 4Di system in order to map the team members’ styles for creative , analytical and critical thinking. This increases understanding of self and others and develops collaborative thinking processes to guide the team in all its’ planning, conflict resolution and planning.
Greater understanding of specific factors influencing team performance and motivation. Identify your team’s lead performance behaviours.
Develop ‘team confidence’ and ‘ self confidence’ - respect for each other’s strengths and understanding of how best to appropriately support and challenge in a pressure environment. Establish processes and behaviours which which ensure maximum access to the diverse cognitive capacity of the team - improving team performance and engendering a culture of cognitive diversity and agility.
James Moore, Deputy Chef de Mission for Performance Services for Team GB, states,
“This was an excellent programme that allowed a diverse group of high performing individuals to get to know each other in a
non-judgmental way. It allowed people to share how they prefer to operate and hence helped shape discussions about how we take this blend of individuals and make them a successful and effective team.”
