team vision days
Great teams can change the world - achieving more together than they ever could alone. But team dynamics can sometimes be difficult, unproductive - and occasionally poisonous. While some teams create brilliant work during difficult times, most do not. A team Vision Day can be a highly impactful exercise, allowing your team to become more unified, productive and enjoyable.
Team Vision Days can be customised to suit the needs of your team, however, at the heart of any Vision Day is a reconnection to values - the ‘why’ of the team.
Connecting to your ‘why’ - your purpose - is probably the most impactful shift in thinking you can do as a team. Research by academics such as Simon Sinek and Adam Grant has shown that teams that are clear in their values and purpose are more united, productive and happier places to be.
Through a series of creative and interactive exercises we will create resonance around the shared values of the team - its unique strengths, outlook and role in the world. We will reconnect with the ‘origin myths’ of the team (how ‘the band’ got together in the first place) to reveal values, shared experiences, and build resonance to ensure the team can operate fully ‘on purpose’.
We combine the values work with a ‘high dream/low dream’ exercise that allows the team to visualise their future together and position themselves (individually and as a group) in relation to it.
We finish with action planning around 3 ‘power’ questions for the team to answer - with a clear action plan for next steps on these.
What will your team get from this?
A deep connection to the purpose of their work and their team values
A bold vision for what the team could achieve together
New tools to help the team define strategy and choose between competing demands and strategies - a ‘values-based’ route map.
