If you already have a good foundation of Organizational Health and just need some help in a specific area, the following topics can be done as stand-alone training:

Organizational Health

and Servant Leadership

TRAINING

Lessons in Servant Leadership

 

Training Objective:   Learn the leadership philosophy of Servant Leadership and how to apply its practical precepts with the people you influence. Servant Leadership is the foundation to Organizational Health, it’s not about title or position but about seeing the development of people as an equal end goal to performance and results. 

Resources:   “Lead Like Jesus” – Ken Blanchard, “Servant Leadership” – Robert Greenleaf, “People First” – Jack Lannom

 

 

Creating a Visionary Framework

 

Training Objective:   Explain the relevance of the “visionary framework” which creates a context for building team and culture and gives the team members a common vision to work toward. Create a local “BHAG” and “Vivid Description” that rallies the team. 

Resource:   “Built to Last” – Jim Collins

 

 

The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team

 

Training Objective:  Understand the basic building blocks of creating an effective team. Establish desired team behaviors that will lead to the results you want. Understand and leverage the strengths of each team member and overcome the weaknesses.

Resources:   “The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team” model and assessment – Patrick Lencioni, “Wired That Way” Temperament Assessment, “Strengths-Based Leadership” - Rath and Conchie

 

 

Creating Clarity

 

Training Objective:   Avoid confusion and cross-purposes by establishing “what’s most important right now.” Clarity builds on the Visionary Framework by identifying a singular, qualitative, short-term Strategic Goal with corresponding Objectives. Clarity also separates the important day to day objectives that must be maintained from the strategic objectives that stimulate progress.

Resources:   “The Advantage” – Patrick Lencioni, The Playbook model (Lencioni)

 

 

Communicating Clarity

 

Training Objective:   Identify and establish communication structures and protocols for the team and for the center that help everyone “know what’s going on around here”.

Resource:   “The Advantage” – Patrick Lencioni

 

 

Reinforcing Clarity

 

Training Objective:   Look at existing people systems and processes within the team and organization and ensure they reinforce “what’s important”.

Death by Meeting

Situational Leadership (SLII®) 

 

Training Objective:   Learn how to adjust your leadership style as people move from enthusiastic beginners to self-directed high achievers. Using the tool developed by Ken Blanchard, Situational Leadership is a practical and effective way to develop people and take the mystery out of performance reviews. 

Resource:   “Leading at a Higher Level” – Ken Blanchard

 

 

Leading Change

 

Training Objective:   Give the leader and team a framework for navigating through change. As the team keeps in step with the Spirit, moving toward their envisioned future, change will be continuous.
