We can help you get from where you are today to where you want to go.

In our research on what makes the difference between a good performing Team and a FULL Potential Team we have found the following five mindsets to be the most crucial enablers:

1.Disciplined investment in shared team standards of BEING vs interpersonal adhoc team building activities: Measures how well the Team creates sustained conditions for trust, respect, openness to new ideas/new thinking.

2.Collectively embody a meaningful purpose (team DNA) vs delivering a project: Measures the Team’s ability to rally behind a meaningful purpose and create concrete project opportunities to bring it to life.

3.Opportunity seeking vs Problem solving: Measures the Team’s ability to practice the 3rd way. Ie: its ability to re-frame situations, problems and options (finding the win-win’s).

4.Help each other shine in their wholeness vs leveraging the expertise we are labeled with: Measures the Team’s ability to see people in their wholeness (functional expertise is a part of that but not all of it) and creates responsibilities based on that.

5.Unconditional dependability vs “when it suits me” dependability : Measures the Team’s ability to rely on each other, to follow through on commitments, set the right expectations and communicate proactively.

TESTIMONIALS

“The Being at Full Potential Team Facilitation Training takes you through multiple levels of learning; not only do you gain insight and tools for training teams, you also put it into practice during the training and therefore learn directly through experience. The course’s foundations rest on solid research and data, which participants then comprehend and consolidate through direct personal experience and creative exercises”.

Well done for not only taking us on a ride ourselves, but also constantly mirror back how we can take clients on a ride in the same manner. Very useful this link between experience and training/practical application of the course content.”

“You created a superb learning environment. A safe space to show up in our full Being. Thank you for that”!

“The Full Potential Team Facilitation Training is an excellent way to explore new ways of collaboration. It reveals that real change is not just a matter of doing but that something else is needed. Based on assignments and exercises we learned to create a safe space that is so desperately needed to get everybody on board to make the change. For me it was a very inspiring and stunning experience, that can be applied to any organisation.”

The assessment and this report is an important first step in an organization’s journey of self actualization. It is an effective way to acknowledge where it is today in terms of Human Potential Realization and what it needs to focus on in the future in order to further grow into its full potential. The next phase, as illustrated in the diagram below (Human Potential Methodology), is DISCOVERY.

DISCOVERY is about processing and integrating the insights so they can be transformed into actionable next steps, fully owned by the organization. During these ‘Discovery’ workshops the client is invited to look deeply into the current beliefs and assumptions that drive their business decisions today and make very deliberate choices on who they want to BE going forward.

This typically involves “Subtracting” (the process of understanding the disconnects – or the shortfalls – along the various states and dimensions of the HUMAN POTENTIAL Assessment Model), “Passaging” (releasing control of the familiar processes used to arrive at solutions) and “Arrival” (seeing opportunities in uncertainties and allowing new possibilities to reveal themselves).

Finally, in the HARNESS phase, the organization is encouraged to visualize and speak about its new intentions in full details (via town-hall meetings or other) and start shaping them into a new implementation plan (Re-scripting). Targeted training and coaching programs are rolled out at the individual and group levels to make the new inner states a reality. Collectively new language and customs are adopted so that employees are engaged in more empowering ways. Management embraces new leadership habits, and the new consciousness is reflected in the management objectives and tools, like in the Business Balance Score Card (Re-sculpting).

 

HUMAN POTENTIAL METHODOLOGY

 

Background:

The tensions and complexities inherent in today’s organizational dynamics prevent teams from realizing their FULL POTENTIAL. To change that, we must find more effective ways to:

  • Rally behind an inspiring long term vision while delivering short term results,
  • Align the unique talents and passions of the individual team members with the collective purpose of the team,
  • Leverage the cultural diversity of global teams,
  • Foster intergenerational collaboration (ie: inspiring Millennials),
  • Unlock cross functional synergies,
  • Remain true to our values in the face of external pressures

Trying to address these tensions with a command and control style of leadership will, more often than not, make things worse, create toxic tensions and threaten the stability of the entire system.

What if we did something different? What if we could hold a difficult situation long enough to drop deeper than what the surface might seem to suggest? What if the conversation that evolved out of that tension or complexity was the very thing that could transform it? And what if the new commitments, the actions, and the creative impulse that appear from this work, inspire each member of the team to rally behind a common purpose – a very clear Big Picture? Just imagine the multiple breakthroughs that would be possible then!

 

Building blocks of the programme:

 

The 2-day Full Potential Team Programme has been carefully designed to capacitate teams and resolve the most complex dilemmas they are facing. Whether it be bridging the generational divide, unlocking cross-functional / cultural / generational synergies, identifying the next breakthrough innovation or even resolving the inherent tensions between Profit and Planet or People and Productivity.

The working space that we create invites all stakeholders to show up in their FULL diversity with their different experiences and points of view. However, before engaging this diversity we first take quality time to co-create a set of shared standards & practices that unify the way in which the group will work together during these days. This process of coming together and agreeing on a set of operating principles is critical to establish a trusting platform upon which our differences can be respected and ultimately synergized in service of a greater good.

After having “set the scene” we can start engaging with the tensions and step into the questions that we don’t yet know the answers to. Being in the middle of knowing and not knowing is what we refer to as the “space in between”. By definition this will be an uncomfortable experience but it also has the potential to be a transformational one, where new insights are revealed and tremendous creativity is unleashed.

We believe it is one of the most important and urgent skills we must learn in order for individuals, teams and organisations to thrive now and in the future. We guarantee huge breakthroughs for groups that genuinely engage in this process!

 

FAQ:

What benefits can I expect from this programme? More transparent and respectful communications, being seen in our full human diversity, greater alignment & commitment of intentions, initiation of co-creative projects, a sense of flow and actioning, with an outpouring of creativity and sense-making. Essentially everything that engages our human spirit and makes the “bottom line” flourish.

Who is it for?  Both private and public sector teams where there is a need to harmonise a set of diverse stakeholders and agendas in order to unlock a common path for collaboration, creativity and innovation. For example, Team Leaders who are responsible for multi-functional collaboration and project delivery.

What situations work well with this process? Situations of complexity, seemingly unresolvable dilemmas and tensions or differences. Essentially all situations where shifts in mind-sets (or the “unfixing” of mind-sets) and perspectives are needed to unlock creativity & new opportunities. Situations where there is need to express the unspoken tensions in a non- judgmental way.

How many people can participate in such a session? Between 6 and 20 participants.

What kind of pre-session work is needed? There will be some pre-programme exercises that will bring more awareness of the dynamics that are both enabling and limiting participants’ effectiveness (making the invisible a bit more visible). An open mind and willingness to explore “the space in between”.

What shifts will we notice after the session? Excitement, sense of possibility, inspiration, commitment to follow through, a deeper and more compassionate understanding of each other, concrete next steps.

What comes next? What comes next and what is needed afterwards will show itself naturally and you will know what the appropriate action will be. However, it is important to establish and put in place the new rituals & behaviours / commitments that will allow this new potential to flourish and fully manifest. We consider that post programme coaching and mentoring support is essential for this initiative to take root and flourish throughout the organisation.
