EXECUTIVE RETREATS

Are you looking to bring the executive team together to develop its Strategic Plan?

Maybe the current business results are good, but you believe that opportunity exists in challenging the team to think bigger and more broadly around future opportunities. Or, maybe the business results are not good, and you need to resolve that plus identify future opportunities. And, as with any team, opportunities for improvement likely exist in how the team works together.  

Executives Network runs Strategic Planning as well as Executive Retreat Facilitation to not only identify new and different ways of doing business, but also identify methods to enhance collaboration and performance, and thereby, further improve the team’s individual and collective performance and results.

Examples of Desired Outcomes

  • Increased Communication, collaboration and effectiveness among leadership team
  • Ensure leadership has clear understanding of goals and objectives
  • Understanding of organization’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Identification of external opportunities and threats
  • Development of 201x Strategic Plan
  • Identification of key processes that are hindering results
  • Identification of factors affecting team performance

While many companies do facilitation, very few are so skilled in not only understanding how people operate, but also in focusing on the relationship aspect that can help or hinder a team’s success. Executives Network has a very clear understanding of relationships and what it takes to ensure your team is on the same page. In addition to traditional assessments, we use innovative employee exercises that focus on team relationships and situational behaviors.

Keep in mind, not all tools are appropriate for every situation.  For each client, Executives Network customizes the right assortment of tools and workshops that will enable an organization to achieve its goals.

Here are some examples of the types of tools Executives Network utilizes:

  • Individual Intake Interview
  • Emergenetics Assessment
  • 1:1 Coaching
  • The Power of WE Team Workshop
  • Team Performance Assessment and Workshop
  • Trust Exercises
  • Software to Manage Team Performance 

 

Individual Intake Interview
The individual intake session provides the framework for what each person on the team is experiencing. Through this conversation, we expect to have a clear understanding of what’s working, what’s not working, and what improvements each person would like to see in oneself as well as the other team members. This interview also sets the groundwork for expectations of the team session.

Emergenetics Assessment
A perfect brain is a perfect team.  Does your team have a perfect brain?

After running organizations and experiencing many different assessment tools, the team at Executives Network narrowed down the field to what’s really useful on an on-going basis.  We’re all busy – and having a 15-30 page analysis on every employee makes it a little difficult to be actionable.  Plus, many assessment tools focus primarily on personality – and infer behavior based on this.  But personality can only tell you so much.  It can give you the what, but doesn’t necessarily give you a clear indication of why someone is behaving the way they are.  This is why we utilize the Emergenetics assessment tool.

Emergenetics is an innovative way of looking at behavior and thought.  The tool gives people a better understanding of themselves, their colleagues and clients.  Emergenetics helps people make better business decisions, build stronger, more creative and productive teams, and communicate more effectively.  This tool gives you greater insight and a thorough understanding of what to expect from team members, how to maximize their capabilities, and how they will work within the team.

1:1 Coaching
Let's just say it right now. Coaching for one rarely works. Too many times, organizations use coaching as code to find a reason to remove someone from an organization. But if someone "needs" coaching, it's rarely just one person on the team. If that's the kind of coaching you're looking for, Executives Network is not the right firm to work with.

If, however, you're looking for the type of coaching that can help good team members become great, and help great team members identify one or two areas that will aid in their advancement, then Executives Network is definitely the firm to work with.

We take coaching very seriously, but it does not happen in a vacuum. Effective coaching is typically combined with other organizational/team performance to ensure its effectiveness.

Leveraging the Power of WE Team Workshop
Building on the framework of Emergenetics, Leveraging The Power of the WE Team (WE=Whole Emergenetics) provides a new window into thinking, behavior, collaboration, and action. It is the building block to generate high performance, combining an understanding of how to utilize cognitively diverse teams with an awareness of how to perform tasks in more creative, effective ways. Organizations can tap into both individual potential and team capacity to maximize results and take performance to unprecedented levels.


Team Performance Assessment and Workshop
The Team Performance assessment is a diagnostic tool to determine team accountability and effectiveness. Used in conjunction with the Emergenetics assessment, this helps teams learn how to harness individual strengths and how to apply them collectively to improve overall team performance. Teams identify potential challenges that are unique to their group, and develop strategies to overcome then, creating the balance that is crucial for sustaining high performance. The outcome of the Team Performance assessment will be the basis for the Team Performance Workshop.

These workshop sessions will be a combination of hands-on exercises as well as facilitated discussion around what’s working, what’s not and how to improve the team both constructively and effectively.

Trust Exercises
Trust is tricky. Some say it's one thing that matters. Some say it's the only thing that matters! Very few teams can even think to perform at their best if there's not complete trust within and among the team members. Sometimes pockets of trust exist between a subset of team members. Sometimes trust is lacking throughout. However, you can't just tell everyone to trust each other. That won't work. What will work, however, is identifying the underlying factors that are contributing to distrust and educating the team on the importance of not only earning trust, but extending it as well.  

Executives Network has a series of exercises to help build trust in teams which desperately need it, and helps reinforce trust in those teams which have a foundation.

Quarterly Leadership Team Accountability
You come to your Executive Offsite with all these great visions and plans of what needs to be done to get your organization on track. Then, you walk out with an Excel file that, quite honestly, no one ever looks at again.

Well, times have changed, and so should your approach.

Executives Network is proud to offer Quarterly Leadership Team Accountability Sessions. These sessions take place each quarter following your offsite. During the session, we'll go through your action items and ensure everyone is delivering on their commitments. But it doesn't stop there. We work together on areas that were identified in the offsite - tools to help your team grow as leaders. Tools to help you with your organization. Tools to help everyone be better together!

What will work for you?
Again, not every tool is right for every situation.  Executives Network works with you to identify the team performance issues and creates the right assortment of tools and workshops that will enable you to achieve your goals.

Measuring Brain Fit - The Emergenetics Assessment

A perfect brain is a perfect team. Does your team have a perfect brain?

Because "fit” is so critical to the team, Executives Network utilizes the Emergenetics assessment tool. This assessment is taken by the Hiring Manager as well as the final candidates. It’s important to understand that no single profile is perfect for any specific position.

After running organizations and experiencing many different assessment tools, the team at Executives Network narrowed down the field to what’s really useful on an on-going basis. Oftentimes, tools focus primarily on personality – and surmise behavior based on this. But personality can only tell you so much. It can give you the what, but doesn’t necessarily give you a clear indication of why someone is behaving they way they are. This is why we utilize the Emergenetics assessment tool.

Emergenetics is an innovative way of looking at behavior and thought. The tool gives people a better understanding of themselves, their colleagues and clients. Emergenetics helps people make better business decisions, build stronger, more creative and productive teams, and communicate more effectively. We use this tool to give Hiring Managers a thorough understanding of what to expect from the candidates, how to maximize their capabilities, and how they will work with the team.In addition to using Emergenetics as a tool in the recruiting process, Executives Network has worked with organizations and their teams already in place to help increase performance within the team.

If you're interested in learning more about Emergenetics, give us a call at (720) 418-8180.

Team Performance

Are you looking to increase the performance levels your team? Often within the team, you have high potential employees and while the business results may be acceptable, it is believed that opportunity for improvement exists in how the team works.

If you're interested in methods to enhance the performance of your team, Executives Network will customize a program that will be enlightening, innovative and effective.

Examples of Desired Outcomes

Increased Communication, collaboration and effectiveness among the team
Discovery of employee's most preferred method of approaching work and relationships
An understanding of what his or her peers expect, and how we can close the gap
Awareness of the employee's thinking style versus others in the organization
Insights around what is working and what is not working
Identification of key processes that are hindering results
Identification of factors affecting team performance
While many companies assist with team performance, very few are so skilled in not only understanding how people operate, but also in focusing on the relationship aspect that can help or hinder a team’s success.
