The goal of this whole program is to co-create a leadership and management culture together in the organisation. After the Stage I workshops in January and February 2016, which focused on practical management skill learning, and Stage II workshops focused on how the team move forward to achieve organisation goals.
In the morning, we had a skill teach-back activity where we shared and learned success stories and challenges of applying the learned skills at workplace. The team identified their top success and challenges and committed an action to support others using the learned skills in workplace.
In the afternoon, we worked on a System Thinking Process called How to make toast (by Tom Wujec). The team learned how to solve problems and generate ideas by using group thinking process. We challenged the group to answer five big questions about achieving the organisation's goals in this year.
Finally, we created a "Commitment Wall" and the group's take-away "I will..." action statements were all practical and realistic. This commitment will lead them move forward to achieving their organisational goals with building the culture of Ownership and Accountability.
It was all about team work to make this program successful. Thanks the team for their full engagement in the whole day, the wonderful venue supporting team, and thank you my partner Cara Steenstra for a great work on facilitating the workshop with me and a wonderful partnership. Will see our next group in April!
