•. Ensure remote team members stay engaged and aligned

•. Create spaces for innovation and connection

•. Adapt communication, conflict-resolution and influencing

•. Virtual Team Charter that creates synergy and authentic co-operation

This programme will allow participants to take a deeper look at how individual, team and organisational decision-making occurs, what works and what is more challenging or preventing effective decision-making from happening. There are also opportunities to explore the human dimensions of decision-making such as the impact of unconscious bias, beliefs, stories, intuition and wisdom. When participants integrate the best practice knowledge about decision-making with a deeper understanding of the impact of “human beings” more effective decision-making can occur.

 

Objectives:

  1. Map your current decision-making process
  2. Highlight the challenges and bottlenecks of your decision-making
  3. Understand unconscious bias and its impact on decision-making
  4. Create better DM protocols using best-practice models
  5. Learn to listen to intuition and wisdom in decision-making

Outcome – to understand what resilience means for participants, how resilient they assess themselves to be, to dive into an individual challenge and evaluate their resilience

 

Webinar 2:

Content – how does stress manifest itself in participant’s daily lives, what happens mentally, emotionally and physically. Understand own flight, fight response, learn centring, test and review. Add in elements of mindful presence as the antidote to overwhelm. Tools offered include centring, intention-setting, unpacking what’s behind stressful situations (story, beliefs etc), mindful presence, anti-anxiety breathing. Utilise some aspects of Thomas Huebl’s work on resilience.

 

Outcome – help participants to recognise what stress means for them, then provide practical tools to help work through difficult situations on a daily basis.

 

Webinar 3:

Content – a deeper dive into habits that strengthen resilience, look back at what came up in webinar 1 and their homework – how are they self-sabotaging their own resilience. Provide some tools and tips on building resilience. Participants will work in breakout groups to clarify current habits and create new habits.

Some ideas/resources include – these will be specified after webinar 2 (depends on participants’ progress)
