Story Wise Team Trust Program
If your team is disconnected, with poor communication, poor collaboration, low grade tension, low productivity, and work is a slog for everyone… or
You have a pretty good team, but you know you could do better, as a workplace, to be more cohesive, fulfilling, purposeful, connected and effective…or
You want to create a story land, where stories are discovered, sensed, shaped and shared, for all the reasons that stories brilliant;
and you believe the means of work is as important as the ends, then the Team Trust program is for you.
This program enables teams to:
Build trust, connection, clarity & community
Amplify and embed purpose and values;
Create and share powerful stories; and
Create sustainable and simple practices and processes
that builds a powerfully bonded and effective team, with high levels of trust, able to have difficult conversations, hold each other accountable and keep their eye on the prize of effectiveness, impact and meaning. In other words an amazing team and organisational culture.
I work with groups who are struggling with morale and connection, as well as teams that are doing ok but want to evolve their organisation to become high performing AND an amazing place to work.
It takes time and commitment but the rewards are amazing. (And if you want to begin the journey to teal I’d be excited to assist.)
This is not a quick fix, one-off program. It runs over 6 months, a combination of fortnightly sessions and a couple of day long sessions, customised to suit your team.
The Program Sections
There are usually five parts to Team Trust, customised to suit your team and your purpose. They are:
Personal sharing in circle - a transformational process that enables people to be heard and listen - human to human.
Storytelling workshop to teach the power of storytelling
Facilitated sessions using story and circle to uncover, share, shape and choose organisationally relevant stories.
Three storytelling showcases sessions, for sharing stories, and create a storytelling practice and community.
Celebrate and review, and co-create ongoing processes and practices.
A group culture that listens and allows each other to be heard
A simple but powerful ongoing set of team practices, co-created by the group
A bunch of great stories, personal and organisational; and
An bonded, collaborative and purposeful team, able to achieve far more than the sum of its parts
I have put together my twenty-five plus years experience in law, community engagement, facilitation, coaching, speaking and of course storytelling …into the Story Wise Team Trust program.
It absolutely offers you and your organisation my best, in group and individual support and structured learning, to transform your team into a connected, trusting and more whole organisation.
The truth is that the most important work the team will do with story is to gain insight, to shift perspective, to see themselves, their purpose, story, group and life in a new way.
A trusting team culture doesn’t happen overnight, it requires time, repetition, carefully design process and facilitation, reflection, questioning, and exploration. This is why I work with groups on meaning making, through the art and craft of storytelling; success requires exploration and learning in both areas.
So if this sounds like something your team needs to make your organisational communications and relationships thrive, make an appointment to talk with me.
We’ll talk through your situation, and get really clear on the direction you need to go, and if it feels right I’ll create a customised program plan and you can decide from there. Even just talking to someone about your challenges can give you clarity, and there is never any obligation to go any further.
