Unlocking the potential of teams with Core Strengths SDI 2.0
We are proud to be official partners of Core Strengths, and use the award winning SDI assessment as a tool to drive powerful learning and development for teams.
We create bespoke workshops for teams based entirely on what the team needs to perform at its best. Typically team session could include:
Adapting communication styles to meet the needs of others
Team dynamics and healthy team relationships play an important role in the success of the team. Teams by their very nature, are made up of a group of individual team members, and each will have their own personality, core values and communication preferences. By understanding what drives self and others, teams can build a better understanding of each other and work together more effectively. By understanding different people’s core values, and motivational drivers, teams can create an atmosphere of trust, collaboration and high levels of engagement, which will ultimately lead to better results.
Great teams embrace diversity, and having a range of different thinking styles on your team is a real bonus. Understanding what they are, and how to utilise them gives a team a much more agile and effective approach to overcome any challenges it may face.
We are proud to be an official partner of Core Strengths, and use the world class SDI assessment and the Core Strengths Relationship Intelligence model on our Team Dynamics workshops.

Team strengths agility
In today’s VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, teams need to stay competitive in this rapidly changing environment. Agility is no longer a nice-to-have, but a necessity for all teams.
Teams must be able to quickly adapt to new challenges and opportunities while also leveraging their existing strengths. To do this, teams need a clear understanding of their current team strengths as well as the strengths required in the future. This understanding can help teams make informed decisions about how best to use their resources and ensure they are always prepared for whatever comes next - and have the edge over their competitors.
We can help you to identify the current strengths in your team and how they are individually and collectively deployed.
We will even look at what happens when those strengths are sometimes over-played, and the cost to relationships when that happens.
Work with us to help you to build a team strengths portrait that will help you deal with your key challenges as a team.
Managing team conflict
Conflict is a part of life and the workplace. However, when it becomes personal, it can damage relationships. Managing conflict successfully is an art, and requires understanding of perceptions and misunderstandings and a willingness to address the issues at hand in a respectful manner.
In some teams, people avoid conflict because they are worried that things may become personal or unprofessional, and this fear can lead to unresolved issues.
To ensure healthy debate and challenge without going down the road of personal attacks or misunderstandings, it is important to understand what triggers conflict in ourselves and in others, and what we need and want once we are in conflict.
Conflict triggers, how we behave, and what we want varies enormously between different people, so having a deeper understanding of what are the potential conflict triggers in your team and how to manage conflict effectively is a fundamental skill that underpins team performance and success.

Understanding who your key stakeholders are, and building strong relationships with them is a very important task for any team. Without a deep understanding of the stakeholders’ needs, wants and priorities, teams may run the risk of overlooking important relationships outside of the team that could negatively impact the team’s success.
High-performing teams have a clear stakeholder map, and a strategy to not only regularly maintain those stakeholder relationships, but also to strengthen those relationships which are critical to team success.
They will also consider how stakeholders view the team and take steps to change less positive perceptions, or enhance the levels of information or services provided to that stakeholder if there is a perceived shortfall.
These teams understand that stakeholder relationships and paying attention to stakeholder needs and wants are key to their success.
Let us help you to engage with your stakeholders and build stronger relationships. Contact us today for more information.
