Phase 2: Leadership and Team Development Program for Culture Change

This content for this phase will be designed based on the information gathered in phase 1. However, we are clear, based on our knowledge of current organizational development theories and instructional design experience, that the following structure will bring about a lasting change in your organizational culture.

 

  1. Leader Training: 4 Days of Offsite Workshops. Suggest 30 day deadline to complete training.
  2. Day 1: We facilitate the creation of behavioral norms that are required to embody the organizational values and goals. We train the leaders in new communication skill development based on DISC personality styles that build trust for difficult accountability conversations and managing conflict. We discuss the ADKAR model for change management, identify current blocks and create relevant strategies. We finish with SMART goals.
  3. Day 2: We facilitate the leaders in learning the Conflict Management and Accountability communication skills. We incorporate the change management strategies from Day 1 and practice the necessary conversations with the leaders. We finish with SMART goals.
  4. Day 3: We facilitate the Leader as Coach training for the leaders. We train them in our coaching model so leaders can effectively mentor, motivate, support and hold staff accountable. The morning is spent learning the model and the afternoon is spent practicing the model supervised by our coaching staff. We finish with facilitating leadership team cohesion and alignment using the “first team” concept and identify SMART goals.
  5. Day 4: We facilitate the compilation and organization of strategies and tactics for implementing the culture change. The leadership team reviews the values, goals and behavior norms. We facilitate clarifying the structures and systems needed to achieve the goals for every work group. We train the leadership team in how to run productive meetings on a daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly basis.
  6. Team Training: 4 Days of Experiential Workshops to implement Mission and Vision. Suggest Quarterly DiSC, Conflict Management, Accountability and Feedback, and Change Management trainings. We host monthly online remote check-in sessions to support SMART Goals and capture feedback.

  2. Review DiSC Personality Style strengths and challenges
  3. Review strengths and challenges implementing Mission and Vision
  4. Review feedback from trainings
