Development - Teams

Our Services in Teams
TEAM BUILDING AND DEVELOPMENT

Teambuilding

We offer support creating a process for the establishment and development of successful teams resulting in candidness and trust between team members and in a structured exchange of opinions on relevant topics.
A variety of instruments is employed when team members are encouraged to analyse the status quo. Together we then establish visions and goals which give us new insights and refreshed vigor. Using time and energy in an efficient way, we share points of view regarding our own future as a team and define measures and planning of action.

THE MOST COMMON REASONS FOR TEAM DEVELOPMENT ARE:

  • launching of a new team
  • improving co-operation and flow of information
  • structuring and allocating roles within the team
  • training on how to work together
  • reinforcing motivation and boosting morale to meet all challenges
EFFECTIVE FACILITATION OF WORKSHOPS AND WORKING GROUPS

Workshop

Use us as a neutral facilitator at your meetings or events to structure your discussions in a goal-oriented way that leads to a solution supported by all - regardless of the number of participants.


Our strength is our ability to immerse ourselves in your "corporate world".


WE PROFESSIONALLY FACILITATE AND DESIGN:

  • a constructive meeting with specific agreements for your team
  • efficient coordination with various negotiation partners in projects
  • a dynamic workshop to generate new ideas and approaches

FACILITATION OF LARGE GROUPS

Large group facilitation makes it possible to involve many people simultaneously in a process, to gain their participation, and to activate them. Change can begin in a broader way and quickly gain momentum. Possible occasions for large group facilitation are...

  • Mobilizing staff to make necessary changes in the process of growth
  • For a change of mood after a drastic restructuring
  • Merger or cooperation between companies, areas, or departments
  • Management events to adjust to a new strategy or themes
  • Sales conferences and annual meetings

We apply various methods like Open Space, World Cafe, Future Conference and Appreciative Inquiry, RTSC (Real Time Strategic Change), to target the objectives of your company.

Through the appropriate facilitation and process design it is possible to achieve concrete results even with so many people. Large group facilitation always lives from the exchange of experience and knowledge and is characterized by...

  • The highest possible integration of the participants
  • Working across hierarchies
  • Dialogue and appreciative exchange
  • Taking advantage of existing potentials and capabilities<
MEDIATION SKILLS

Conflict solution

Unresolved conflicts are a hindrance to efficient co-operation, paralysing all parties to a conflict and having an inhibitive effect on the working environment and climate. Thus, not only unused potentials tend to lie waste but also non-productive working hours pose a considerable expense factor.

ISG operates as facilitator and offers well-structured support during negotiations between parties of conflict. It is of utmost importance to us to generate speedy and sustainable long-term solutions. It is not about finding out who is to blame, but rather how all parties can resolve frictions efficiently in the future... however, to find someone to blame but navigating a way for.

ISG will plan and steer a special step-by-step communication process between the parties concerned.

  • presenting in detail the topics of negotiation
  • questioning arguments and exposing underlying motives in order to further mutual understanding
  • collecting options for resolution of a conflict and choosing a realistic outcome
  • molding feasible solutions into concrete agreements

 

 
SETTING COMMON GOALS AND CREATING AN UNDERSTANDING OF TASKS & ROLES

Goal

In periods of change and restructuring in companies it is increasingly necessary to orient your team to changed circumstances, new goals, new responsibilities, etc.

The core question in this phase of change is "What is the fixed framework and how much active participatory shaping is possible?" We support you in...

  • Creating awareness of the company´s set goals, breaking them down into steps and communicating them clearly to the team.
  • Generating acceptance for new and different roles and responsibilities
  • Restructuring, making areas of responsibility clear, and agreeing upon one´s personal assignment.

The right mixture, good organisation, creativity and common fun put out it, in the teamwork like with the cooking. Experience your team once differently, and are surprised from the unusual taste of the result!

Together you experience how carefully and with foresight with resources (food and time) becomes handled whether the common aim is cleared from the outset and whether one approaches the result systematic-organised after prescription, or in a creative-chaotic process. How singles introduce her strengths how becomes with unforeseen crises handled, and how affects mood and motivation in the team? 
Also the permanent orientation towards the taste of the end customers plays a role, just as the service orientation and good presentation of the dishes with the common feast.

According to objective and creation this method serves either creative getting to know „in other kind“, or laying the table and treatment of frictional points by intensive next reflexion and transference of the knowledge on the working everyday life. Crowning climax is, in any case, the common pleasure of the team creations.

The common experience of teamwork and not the improvement of the cookeries is in the foreground. Hence, we support when required the cooking process discreetly by practical cooking tips, easy prescriptions and help in the use of kitchen utensils in the canteen kitchen.
The cooking process is filmed, and the video serves when required for the support of the next process reflexion and of course for the remaining recollection.

Nobody can avoid this experience! Depending on wind and waves you discover ways how you can handle as a team optimally with all challenges. Supported by a Skipper you choose the course, award the duties aboard and make decisions. Stress situations on rough sea must as be mastered as maintaining the motivation with stagnation. The participation in a regatta offers a special incentive.

The reflexion of the cooperation is accompanied by the travelling with coach. Elements like the aim / The course of the team, the meeting of decisions, the allocation of duties in the everyday life, as well as the communication are lighted up together, as well as arrangements are met to the future.
