Truly united teams deliver unrivalled service both internally and externally. BREAKING DOWN SILOS: THE POWER OF ONE TEAM
In your business, you’ve got teams and inter-teams. The inter-team is the connections made with the other teams, departments, countries and businesses to keep your organisation running smoothly.
The most dynamic businesses in the world realise there are no problems, challenges, opportunities or innovations that can be delivered by one team. By seeing the value others can bring to you, you can help them succeed as well.
Don’t just focus on what your team’s goals are, focus on helping other teams, and your organisation also succeed.
No one is an island within any organisation—we’re all customers and suppliers within a larger service relationship. Working contrary to this is the reality that people tend to build borders; they can’t see beyond their own ‘job’ and immediate needs to their vital role within a greater whole. When this attitude spreads, the symptoms are obvious: distrust, self-serving behavior and broken commitments. The results of those trends are worse: compromised quality, minimal productivity and terrible customer service. Promises, Promises!™ promises and delivers a perception-shattering experience that creates a vision for a truly borderless organisation
The inaugural meeting of the United League of Nations is set to commence…and you’re elected! Empowered as the politicians of your own nation – one of 10 – you and your team must honour the promises made to your demanding constituents. Within a world of diplomatic intrigue, politics, scandals and lots of fun, you’ll have to overcome distrust, cultural barriers and flawed communications to make good on your commitments. But, with the clock ticking, the Promises, Promises! Experience breaks down these borders to show the importance of delivering on both ‘local’ and ‘global’ priorities. You will be surprised by the learning as you develop key skills based on productive collaboration, open communication and results-focused teamwork, all with an eye to achieving the ultimate goal-becoming a truly United League of Nations.
• Move from a ‘me’ mentality to a ‘we’ perspective
• Operate with more ease and efficiency by fostering an environment of trust
• Negotiate to generate mutually beneficial results and productive partnerships – everybody is a customer and supplier
• Optimise overall success by aligning your efforts to achieve individual, team and organisational goals
• Employ collaboration and widespread communication – focused on ‘big picture’ needs – to deliver exceptional internal and external service
“Promises Promises is a great programme for opening participants eyes to how easily we can lose sight of the big picture at work. We can become so transfixed with our own small piece of the jigsaw that we neglect to engage in wider scale activities required to make the organisation thrive. It’s great at shaking people out of the typical ‘that’s not my job’ attitude. It’s also great at focusing participants on who they’ll need to engage with in order to bring about change in an area they are responsible for. We’ve used it to drive an awareness of key stakeholders and how to engage with them when implementing operational excellence projects.”
Our leaders were struggling with collaboration. We knew as a good group of teams we are were not always at our best. What to prioritise and when always posed the usual internal challenges. Some teams ‘winning’ at the cost of others. The outcome we sought needed to ensure everyone understood clearly the role they played in our ability to be brilliant across all functions. It must help drive personal accountability, not only for our leaders, but also individuals within teams across our business.
Your Promises, Promises! experience allowed us to bring together 200 people to work through very real situations we face day in and day out and delivered 110% of our objectives. It was so energising seeing a room full of our people passionately working so well together to overcome the obstacles in the way of becoming a truly united team of teams.
What we achieved in half a day together with your support would have taken us a year in the business.
Highly recommend this to anyone looking to move their team culture from good to great!
