DEEPLY CONNECTED TEAMS

Learn the 3 Essential Skills Leaders need to create
psychological safety, connections and trust in their team

DO YOUR TEAM MEMBERS FEEL SAFE?

If your team members lack motivation, are hiding their mistakes and call in sick often, your organization is probably having a problem with psychological safety.

If they don’t feel safe to speak up, they are spending most of their energy on “surviving” their workday and avoiding conflicts with colleagues and managers instead of focusing on the work at hand.

PEOPLE DON'T QUIT A JOB - THEY QUIT A BOSS

Whether your team members feel encouraged or excluded when joining your organization is determined at the very beginning. The first few weeks at a new job are when they feel most vulnerable and are the most likely to leave, wasting your organization’s time, energy and money in recruiting, hiring and onboarding.

As a leader, it is your responsibility to create an environment where employees feel included, engaged and encouraged to contribute their best efforts and ideas.

Google’s quest to build the perfect team uncovered that the #1 indicator of a high-performing, innovative team is the psychological safety and trust that develop largely through SOCIAL CONNECTIONS.

LET'S BUILD CONNECTED TEAMS

“All teamwork is based on trust, and trust is built when team members are open about their weaknesses and mistakes.” ~ Patrick Lencioni, Author of The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team

Creating psychological safety and trust is the FOUNDATION of a healthy, engaged and high-performance workplace.

When your employees feel valued and connected at work, they are more motivated, provide each other with emotional support to get unstuck and make better decisions since team members feel safe to share information.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN IN THIS WORKSHOP

In this 1-hour workshop, you’ll learn the 3 essential skills every leader needs to create a high-trust, high-performance team culture:

HOW TO HAVE HUMAN TO HUMAN CONVERSATIONS

Clear communication is one of the most critical leadership skills, but often we only talk about “how to talk” instead of “how to listen.” Being present in conversations and listening with empathy is what makes your team members feel seen, heard and valued.

HOW TO LEAD WITH VULNERABILITY

Vulnerability is not hanging out your dirty laundry for everyone to see, but about leaning into the uncomfortable conversations instead of avoiding them. As a leader ( in a position of power), it’s your responsibility to go first to set the tone, which allows your team members to follow in your footsteps and lead to deeper connections and trust.

HOW TO FACILITATE CONNECTIONS FOR YOUR TEAM MEMBERS

As a leader, you must know how to facilitate connections to enable your team to work together and collaborate quickly, because they don’t happen by chance. Employees who have friends at work are happier, more engaged and more productive.
