How do you help a team get unstuck from lose-lose thinking?
TRUE STORY: 40 managers from an international company met at a resort facility for a teambuilding workshop I led. The team works in geographically dispersed offices and upper management clearly sees that group members (consciously or unconsciously) compete with each other. Information flows slowly and sharing of best practices doesn't occur. Everything takes longer than it should and opportunities are lost (revenue is lost).
What would YOU do in this situation to expand their thinking?
How would YOU facilitate this group to be open to new ways of behaving?
I led a lively TeleSeminar with my colleague Michael Goldman of FacilitationFirst.com to answer these questions.
I shared one teambuilding game that I used with this group that created the opening to allow the group to shift from win-lose and lose-lose consciousness (or "scarcity" mentality) to win-win (or "abundance" mentality) - - you can see a photo of this above.
Michael shared an amazingly simple and powerful 5-step facilitation process that he’s used to move a group from win-lose behaviors to action planning win-win behaviors.
We wrapped it all up with a question and answer period. How about those callers from Switzerland and South Africa?!
This is an exciting collaboration between Michael Goldman and myself as we bring you the best of both worlds: teambuilding games and facilitation skills.
