Virtual Workshops to Develop High Performing Teams

Comprehensive team development can include individual and team diagnostic, development workshops with activities, one-to-one coaching supported by team observation, and high-quality feedback to ensure application in the workplace.

Our virtual workshops enable individuals and teams to grow and achieve measurable results for themselves and the company. We start with 'the end in mind' - what do you want to accomplish in 12 months time? What will you see and hear the delegates doing differently in the workplace? Our customised programmes utilise the proven 'Q-OPD sustainable development goals' model to ensure that positive change is embedded in the workplace. By using relevant diagnostics such as the Q-OPD Strengths and Gaps 360 feedback tool and personality assessments e.g. Lumina Spark linked to the workshops the delegates will feel their time, energy and effort is being spent wisely on areas that will benefit them as well as the team and organisation in the long term.
We run workshops for interdependent teams (i.e. those that share the same goals and work for the same leader) or for groups (e.g. leaders from a company, 'high potential talent' individuals, etc.



These are some of issues we address in our team development:

Trusted Leaders get better results...
Leaders and managers account for at least 70% of variance in Employee Engagement scores
Effective leaders get 40% better results, client satisfaction and reduced turnover of staff
Leaders need to have trusting relationships with their staff and colleagues in order to get things done. Low trust literally costs the company money.

Following our virtual workshops or coaching, individuals and team members will understand :
  1. How their unique behaviour profile impacts the results they achieve when working with others - the level of influence and trust they have within their team, the wider organisation and their clients
  2. How to increase their effectiveness by utilsing their hidden potential
  3. How to manage their 'go to' stress behaviours which can be derailing their career!

Lumina Spark provides an easy means of raising awareness and understanding of themselves and others. The Spark phone app acts as a reminder of their profile and is interactive with others' profiles - so a person can see how they are similar or different to their colleague and where they will have to flex their style inorder to understand each other better.

Opening dialogue for stronger teamwork and collaboration
Lumina for Coaching Leaders
Leaders need to form trusting relationships with their staff and colleagues in order to get things done.
  • how can they they gain better results from their teams?
  • what is holding them back?
  • what is the easiest way to maximise their impact?

In order to do this they need to understand themselves - their strengths, their potential and their derailing behaviour.

Lumina Spark Virtual Workshops for groups or teams

In 2020 we introduced a range of customised workshops which are engaging and interactive. These are interlinked modules each building on what was learned previously. workshops are of 2.5 to 3 hours duration. Using specialised virtual tools, comprehensive personal reports and workbooks, richly descriptive card decks and a smartphone app. One of the unique aspects of Lumina Spark assessment is the humanistic idea of embracing paradox. For example, in any team there can be members who seem to have diametrically opposed personality traits. When these team members are able to value each other’s differences, teamwork can flourish, rather than clash. Therefore Lumina’s tools can help solve issues that the organisation may be facing by resolving conflicts, helping teams work together harmoniously, valuing diversity and leading to increased production levels in the long term.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) workshops

The MBTI model is especially useful for providing individuals and teams with the tools to recognise how others behave differently to them and then to adapt their own behaviour to communicate more effectively. There are many applications for leaders, teamwork, decision-making and for introducing organisational change. Individuals will receive personalised MBTI profile reports and workbooks.

HPI (Hogan Personality Inventory) – This assesses the bright side of the personality, i.e. qualities that describe you when you are at your best and gives valuable insight into how you work and lead.
Hogan team report – This provides leaders with valuable information about their team's strengths, weaknesses, values and internal dynamics thus equipping them with the strategies they need to help their teams achieve their full potential. It greatly helps with the:

  • Management of conflict: Conflict, whether internal or external, is the greatest threat to team performance. The Hogan Team Report draws on the Hogan Development Survey to identify shared derailers that might affect the team's behaviour.
