Enhancing Group Effectiveness
“Even when walking in a party of no more than three, I can always be certain of learning from those I am with. There will be good qualities that I can select for imitation and bad ones that will teach me what requires correction in myself.”
Team Alignment assists participants in understanding how personal attitudes, values and beliefs contribute to effective or ineffective group interaction. Most people interact with a group in accordance with the learned behavior of their family unit. These behaviors are often the result of dysfunctional family values and beliefs that are ineffective and inappropriate in the business environment. Participants learn how to identify and change attitudes and beliefs that may be limiting their effectiveness as a team member. Effective teams are based on trust, mutual respect and commitment to a common vision. To enhance these essential qualities and empower people to use them learn how to align the subconscious script with the consciously defined values and behaviors. The belief change process is simple, direct and verifiable.
THE KINDS OF BELIEFS THAT ARE IDENTIFIED AND CHANGED
Individuals are able to tap their full potential for increasing personal and professional effectiveness by changing self-limiting beliefs into Beliefs for Success.
|Self-Limiting Beliefs||Beliefs for Success|
|“Other people usually have better ideas than I do so I’ll just keep quiet.”||“My opinions and actions are important to the success of the team.”|
|“If I contribute more than others they’ll think I’m trying to make them look bad.”||“It’s OK for me to contribute more than others on the team when I am capable.”|
|“I can’t trust others because they’re just in it for themselves.”||“I naturally trust others and give them the benefit of the doubt.”|
|“I usually end up giving up what I believe,
in order to fit in with others.”
|“I usually stay true to my personal vision, even when others see things differently.”|
|“I have to protect my ideas because others will take credit for them.”||“I willingly share my ideas and experience a team win as a personal win.”|
These are just a few examples of the beliefs that affect team alignment. Participants receive additional example belief statements associated with this topic and learn how to write their own empowering beliefs. Detailed handouts are included to reduce the need for note taking and to enhance the individual’s ability to concentrate on the experience of aligning subconscious beliefs with conscious goals for sustainable success.
