People PositiveTM Ltd is pleased to announce an expansion of its team capability in offering a further tool to enhance our expert collaborative working facilitation.
The Margerison-McCann Team Management Profile can be used with team members, managers and leaders either individually or as part of the development of high-performing teams. The personal profile looks at individual motivation, how you can best contribute to success, how you are likely to lead, and how you interact with others who are different to yourself.
It is a powerful tool that focuses on the real world of work and is written in positive language that emphasises strengths. Recent discussions between Andrew Thacker and Mark Gilroy, Managing Director of TMSDI, demonstrated a high degree of synergy between the suite of tools and the way in which People PositiveTM is supporting collaborative working with its clients.
We have three accredited coaches and can incorporate the tool into team development, individual coaching or leadership alignment sessions. More information will shortly be available on our website. If you’d like to know more about the Team Management Profile go to www.tmsdi.com
If you want to know more about how we can support you just drop me a line at email@example.com or give me a call on 07717 724765.
We welcome Andrew back from delivering a successful HSE alignment workshop for The Penguins Project in Qingdao last week…
People Positive was tasked with supporting the alignment of 5 companies around an HSE vision. To add to the diversity and challenge there were 37 people in the room and at least 8 different nationalities represented. The workshop was conducted in a language, which was for most, their second language at best. For others, simultaneous translation was provided. A number of attendees had made long flights to be there and for others this was a distraction from important operational work, especially as the workshop was taking place in their offices.
As part of the way we work in supporting clients we place a great emphasis in creating the conditions for success. The circumstances described above would not appear to meet those conditions. However the situation described is common across industries and organisations when planning events and workshops and seminars. There are always distractions, difficulties, logistical challenges and people who are not sure why they are in the room and what they can add.
It’s our job therefore to ensure that we create a room and an atmosphere that is conducive to great engagement and high productivity in delivering any kind of workshop or event.
Our methods are not secret and are centred around the adaptation of Pinpoint Facilitation using highly visual techniques to stimulate conversation and debate and to record outcomes. We add a philosophy of early engagement and diligent preparation so that we can relax and focus our attention on the needs of the people in the room rather than worrying about our own performance.
The alignment workshop in China was judged a great success by the participants. They were able to cover the ground they needed to and reached an agreed outcome which was visually represented and will be used during the project. This was not luck or a happy by-product, it was the result of weeks of planning, constant communication between People Positive and the client, focused preparation and deliver and, most importantly by the willingness and ability of the participants to engage with each other in setting the direction of the project.
