Houston, Texas: Birkman International, an industry-leading provider of workplace behavioral and motivational assessment tools, designed the High-Performing Teams: Building the Foundation workshop to increase team effectiveness and can serve as a catalyst to overcome the many team challenges that arose during COVID-19.
“Team resilience is crucial for remote and in-person teams,” says Sharon Birkman, CEO of Birkman International. “After a disruptive year, organizations were forced to change how their teams collaborate. Our High-Performing Teams workshop helps team membersunderstand and leverageeach other’s personalities in order to succeed in this ever-changing environment.”
By pairing proprietary assessment data with industry-leading thought-leadership, individuals gain insights intoteam member expectations, expand emotional intelligence, and build deeper relationships, allowing them to collaborate more effectively and create a strong foundation for high-performance.
“We’ve narrowed it down to three critical pillars taught throughout the workshop that can help rebuild a virtual or in-person team’s sense of collaboration,” says Dan Perryman, General Manager at Birkman International. “Purpose, Clarity, and Psychological Safety help create the stability and strength needed for teams to conquer any challenge that comes their way. On top of that, Birkman data is used to expand the self-awareness individuals need to fuel personal resilience. In the absence of these critical insights and actions, teams will fail.”
The three pillars–Purpose, Clarity, and Psychological Safety–help teams recognize why stability is essential to long-term success as well as how to build this stability from the inside out. Individuals learn how to create alignment by defining goals, setting priorities, and using a common language to discuss the interpersonal-complexities teams face.
“After the pandemic, it’s even more clear that teams must build stability and resilience to maintain high-performance,” says Birkman. “This workshop gives teams the skills to foster environments that allow for taking risks, driving purpose, and learning to adapt in challenging times.“
