Team Building Session using the Type Verifier
This session lets the participant, in a highly interactive fashion, experience the ways in which people are different in how they interact with others, take in information, make decisions with that information, and organize their work.
This information will be used to evaluate:
the impact these differences have on a team
why the team needs each other's strengths
how to capitalize on their different strengths.
This is also an excellent workshop to prepare leaders, managers and employees to deal with the increased diversity, including generational diversity, in the workplace.
Best-in-Class organizations are leaving less to chance by using assessments to help them ensure that both new and longer-term employees are given the right roles, developed in the right way and prepared for leadership challenges as effectively and efficiently as possible. Type tools are used across the globe to improve individual and team performance, retain top talent, develop leadership at every level of an organization and reduce workplace conflict.

Evaluate how the dominant and least preferred aspects of each individual on the team influences the team, positively and negatively.
Identify strengths and blind spots of the team and how the team can compensate for the blind spots.

This module takes the concepts explored in the Type and Organizations class and applies them to the team. This includes information about how individuals, of each type, typically lead, influence others and contribute to a team. How each person can maximize team effectiveness, will be studied.

Participants will receive:
Introduction to Type and Teams The booklet includes information on how individuals can maximize team effectiveness.

This booklet focuses on workplace issues and the effects of long-term stress on employees at all levels, within an organization, based on research and the reported experiences of a stratified national sample of working adults.
Side by Side An in-depth analysis of the team members personality and working style compared to two others, they interact with on a regular basis.
Type and Stress Management: Building Resilience
Problem: Deep breathing doesn’t work. Journaling is minimally helpful. Meditating or a good night’s rest is practically impossible because of the stressful thoughts crowding your mind. You’ve tried exercising but you can’t outrun the anxiety. In short, you are stressed.
Solution: No one is suggesting these stress relievers are not good ideas but are they good enough? The reality is each personality handles stress differently with a wide variety of stress reactions. Tailored strategies help us and help us to support others work through serious stress that is threatening everyone’s mental and physical health on a day in day out basis.
Sharon Lovoy will conduct a highly interactive session using your TypeCoach® results:
To identify the impact of stress on yourself and others and replace judgment with a culture of grace and space.
To build strategies for helping yourself and others recover from stress and build resiliency.
To recognize the differences between you and others and identify how to make those differences result in better ways of supporting one another.
As a framework for positively influencing others.
As a tool for better identification of the gifts and strengths of yourself and others.
Sharon Lovoy, is a Master Coach in the Type community.
BUILDING A HEALTHY TEAM CULTURE
Tools to build the essential capacity of the team to trust one another
Problem: Teams that engage in unhealthy behavior and have damaged relationships always have little or no trust. Morale takes a hit and there’s a sense that it is never going to get better.
Solution: Trust and connection are critical to building a culture where team members respect one another and are committed to performing excellent work together.
Sharon Lovoy, a former HR director and certified coach, has just completed a book describing her own failures at trying to be a good team member. She describes her journey from failure to success as she built a dream team that was the envy of the rest of the organization. Sharon knows how to build a transformative experience for individuals and cohorts to challenge team members and leaders, to connect and collaborate.
Building a culture of trust includes:
Work on me, first. Being self-aware means managing the stories and judgments in our heads and being conscious of our impact on others.
Work on us, second. A strong culture promotes collaboration with a foundation of trust and ensures the ability to build and maintain social capital.
Included in this session will be a study of organizations that fiercely protect their healthy culture from internal threats (the team’s behavior) and external threats (unhealthy behaviors from other parts of the organization). Participants will examine success stories and create a game plan for incorporating these ideas into their team mission.
