Team Building

Recognize and Nurture Staff Members

Every day staff in companies is confronted with new assignments. Often they are not well prepared to take over these responsibilities. Without the right preparation they may run into things that they do not know and cannot deal with. How well do you know your staff? Do you know who has which skills and how you can use these effectively within your team?

Real Life Example

A company tries to implement a new policy to become the market leader in their industry. This means that the current teams are given new tasks to accomplish. Together we formulate new targets and work on ways to execute the new ideas. Using TMS as a tool to provide additional input, we can examine the profiles of the staff and decide who has the skills needed to take on the new challenges.

I can support you in ascertaining the skills of your employees and then decide who is best capable to master the new responsibilities. Would you like to benefit more fully from the potential of your staff and help them achieve better results? Then contact me!

Group Dynamics

Comprehend Roles and 

Emotions in Groups

People working in groups are often confronted with misunderstandings, especially when the dynamics in the group move into an area in which they have never worked before. In such situations it is important to acknowledge the emotions which arise at the moment and recognize the various roles of the group members.

Real Life Example

For over ten years I have been the leader for groups of participants who are being trained to be facilitators for parenting programs. Many of them have only worked with children or with individuals in other contexts. Therefore they have to learn to adjust their views and acquire new techniques and strategies to use in the parenting courses. Participants who want to become parenting trainers are faced with clients who are dealing with very personal and emotional topics revolving around children and their upbringing. In these groups it is necessary for the trainers to learn to assess, attend to, and, when necessary, shape the needs of the individual participants and the entire group. In doing so all involved learn to manage their situation at home better.

I can support you when groups have to learn to deal with new challenges and make their opinions understood. Would you like to understand the various roles in the groups you work with better and respond to the participants in an appropriate manner? Then contact me!

Facilitation

Support Change Processes

Companies merge with others; new employees need to be integrated into existing structures; managers come and go... These are just a few of the situations in which I can help by providing you with assistance as the conditions in your company change. I can help you avoid conflicts before they arise and include the visions of those involved, so that everyone feels they have been heard and their opinions considered.

Real Life Example

After two companies merged, representatives of both parties met under the leadership of the parent company. To make sure that everyone felt at ease and could express themselves as they wished, I was asked to facilitate the meeting. In this way everyone was able to make contributions from their point of view and find the best solutions for the future of the newly-formed company.
