Meeting Facilitation and Team Building Events
Our trained facilitators offer tools and processes to make your work meetings and retreats more effective by increasing productivity, focus, and accountability.
In consultation with you, Human Resource Management staff create programs to meet your specific needs. They may be offered in-person or online and are tailored to help your team meet its goals, to improve effectiveness and capacity, or to strengthen relationships.
In addition, we are certified to facilitate team development sessions on these topics:
- Change Intelligence
- Compassionate Communication
- Conflict Resolution
- Myers-Briggs Type Inventory
Human Resource Management staff are certified practitioners of the CQ System for Developing Change Intelligence®.
Prior to the team-building event, participants will complete an online assessment to learn their Change Leader Style. In the session, we’ll help each member see how their particular use of their head, hands, and heart supports the group as they implement a change. Team members also gain insight into how to adapt their style and enhance the effectiveness of the entire team.
Change Intelligence sessions generally require 3-4 hours of meeting time and may be conducted online or in-person. There is a fee for the assessment.
Human Resource Management staff are certified practitioners of the CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthsFinder) assessment. CliftonStrengths is based on research in the field of positive psychology and empowers people to build on their natural talents rather than focusing time and energy on overcoming their weaknesses.
Prior to the team-building event, team members complete the online assessment and receive a report describing their top five strengths. During the session, teams see how their strengths align under the domains of executing, influencing, relationship-building, and strategic thinking. Participants gain insight into how each team member’s strengths contribute to the team’s productivity and effectiveness, and they learn strategies for leveraging their individual strengths in personal and professional settings.
CliftonStrengths sessions generally require 2-3 hours of meeting time and may be conducted online or in-person. There is a fee for the assessment.
Compassionate Communication, based on the principles of Non-Violent Communication, fosters understanding and connection. It includes translating judgments into observations, emphasizing needs instead of strategies, identifying real and faux feelings, and making requests instead of demands. These approaches can reduce assumptions, grow empathy, and lessen tension within teams.
Compassionate Communication sessions are tailored to fit your needs and schedule. They may be conducted online or in-person.
Human Resource Management staff is certified to administer the Conflict Dynamics Profile® individual assessment and to train individual and teams on practical workplace conflict resolution skills.
Prior to the team-building event, individuals take the Conflict Dynamics Profile® assessment to help individuals and teams understand how they respond to conflict, what triggers can escalate conflict, and how to manage conflict more effectively.
Team sessions generally require two hours of meeting time and may be conducted online or in-person. There is a fee for the assessment.
Myers-Briggs Type Inventory
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a robust tool for self-awareness and improvement. Supported by 70 years of research, the assessment identifies an individual’s natural preferences for how they direct and receive energy, take in information, draw conclusions and make decisions, and approach the outside world. Being aware of our preferences can positively impact how teams communicate, grow, and work together.
MBTI sessions generally require 2-3 hours of meeting time and may be conducted online or in-person. There is a fee for the assessment.
