Bridging the Gap 
Believe in a better way


We are moving swiftly towards the end of 2020 and what a year it's been! With hope and optimism in our hearts we may be thinking of next year and what we are going to focus on. 

Coming back to the present, as I write this we are witnessing another change in the seasons from Autumn to Winter and as the tree dies back and nourishes its roots, this is the perfect time to do work with your team.  


By measuring  where you are and discovering the best of what your roots bring. Taking this time to reflect on the year and asking , what do you want to take away from it, and what do you want to let go of?  There is a balance to be found between thinking about the future but also reconnecting your team or organisation as a group. 
 
If you are unsure as to how you will come back better in 2021, I invite you to join me to realign your purpose and uncover the courage to practice in a better more connected way. 

Throughout December, January and February I will be offering practical solutions which will help you develop a strategy that will be inclusive, engaging, and can reduce frustration and friction in teams. These solutions will be delivered in 2 ways: 

Strategy Camp 

A facilitated, online or in person, winter camp for your team over one or two days.  

Outcomes will include 

  • Renewing your connection with others in your team - it’s been a tough old year for relationships
  • Developing your 12 months priorities for the year ahead, both for the business and team development to unlock potential.
  • It will give you a clear idea of what to work on in the first quarter and a  process that you can run yourself to navigate successfully through the year.  
What is included: 
  • Preparation and follow on support via my online platform to help hold you and your team accountable for the actions you commit to in the workshop and gentle prompts and reminders to stimulate learning if you need to deviate (just look how 2020 panned out on the deviation front)
  • Bespoke care throughout starting with a consultation call to build a shared understanding of what you want to gain
  • Workshop length and any materials required
  • A team here to help ensure you succeed and learn
  • Flexible payment options 
Why would we need to do this now, I hear you say? 

The simple answer is doing this work will make sure that you are ready to start your financial year strong and hit the ground running. You will be  learning, developing and adapting as a team for whatever opportunities 2021 is ready to throw at us! 

“Ed quickly builds rapport with a team to gain the trust that is needed to explore difficult topics safely. He took the time to get to know us and cares deeply about what we are trying to do and isn’t afraid to check in that we have moved forward between sessions”
Andrew North, Coop Engagement Manager

Winter Strategy Camp options: 

2 half days day online: £1100 
1 day in person at a UK venue** you book: £1600*

Refresh and renew your commitment to the longer term vision as a group and gain clarity on how to get going. 

If you are ready to take a step towards coming back stronger in 2021, book a get together HERE and we can explore your curiosity together over a zoom coffee.

 

Strategy Kit

The Strategy Kit is something we have recently been working on as part of our commitment to ensure we are providing upskilling opportunities and making powerful ways to understand your culture, powerful, meaningful and easier to practice. The kit is like a backpack of tools ready to guide you and your team and aims to deliver the same outcome as the Strategy Camp however it is you that facilitate the process. You will get all the resources and support to lead your team towards a successful year. 

What’s included: 

  • This will include  online resources 
  • Chat support with Ed and the team, 
  • Regular check in’s  with me. 
  • A virtual group that will offer you support throughout this journey, and have the opportunity to network and connect with like minded peers. 
  • Access to our January 2021 cohort, online facilitators training programme, which comes highly recommended (see below) 

Let me answer some of the doubts that may be creeping in...

This kit is designed to lead your team through a trusted inclusive process. And is also a fantastic self development opportunity to expand your horizons and maybe even learn a few new skills. 

The kit is yours for life for £250

Last but not least, I would like to remind you all about my brand new training:
Evolve your Facilitation online

Earlier this year I recognised the need to help my clients navigate through cultural change and the challenges we all face to working remotely.

The aim of the course is to help organisations who are having to adapt and move towards working remotely. It will suit those who are either running programmes or are looking to improve the way they run meetings. 

Who can take part? 
Calling all Facilitators, Managers and Leaders. If your organisation is having to adapt and innovate a lot more, but delivering  that through an online platform is proving to be much more challenging, then this is the course for you . 

How is it going to work?
It will include 6 live sessions on zoom. These sessions will allow you to take part interactively, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, work with peers on the same learning journey, and of course test the new methods and techniques you have gained along the way. Alongside this you will have access to a library of online resources to use with your teams. 

To join there is a one of fee of £180 or flexible payment options available. 

"I liked the excellent training approach, it was incredibly helpful and
supportive in boosting my confidence.
I learnt about new techniques and skills that has equipped me to deliver
more effective and positive digital engagement
The impact of the course has greatly improved my confidence,
skills and abilities to be an engaging on-line facilitator."

Join the January cohort HERE, up-skill yourself to serve your team remotely building connection and authenticity in 2021.

Until next time. 

Stay safe, 
Ed
