Team Building in the Workplace

We all know how frustrating it can be to be a part of a team where there is dissention, lack of motivation, or inequality in workload or responsibility. Our employee team building programs are the solution to teambuilding in the workplace. Whether the focus is on service, quality, cost, value, speed, efficiency, or performance, effective teams are the building blocks of successful organizations.  Consequently, your success often depends on how well you and your team operate together.  How are your problem-solving skills?  Is the team enthusiastic and motivated to do its best?  Do you work well together?  This course can help you by offering the knowledge and tools needed to:

  • Understand the “life-cycle” of teams
  • Develop team norms, ground rules, and team contracts
  • Build trust between team members
  • Master communication strategies for building and maintaining a team atmosphere
  • Identify your team player “style” and how it can be used effectively with your own team
  • Recognize and reward team performance

Building Trust in the Workplace

The Skilz Group’s executive coaching staff is passionate about providing a relationship-centered business training approach. At the core of any healthy relationship is trust. Building trust in the workplace is the key to creating and maintain a positive work environment for your business. The nature of today’s leaner, flatter organizations demands that managers and employees work as interdependent teams. A growing body of research and best practice reveals that without trust there can be no interdependence.  Sadly, this same research also reveals that trust – particularly employees’ trust in management – is at an all-time low.

The goal of the Building Trust in the Workplace training program is to provide the knowledge and relationship-building tools you’ll need to:

  • Make the “business case” for building trusting relationships
  • Understand the nature of trust
  • Create and sustain trust with employees and colleagues
  • Repair trust when it’s been broken

“Managing Up” Employee Training

 Managing up is not “selling out,” “brown-nosing,” or “playing politics.”  It’s a conscious approach to working with your manager to achieve goals that are in the best interests of all concerned within your workplace.  Those who master managing up are able to achieve their goals faster. Upward management training can help your employees at all levels feel empowered, and that their voice is heard. Influencing upwards helps everyone realize their full potential and do so with less stress.

Our Managing Up training program is highly research-based and will help you master managing up by offering strategies and real-world recommendations for:

  • Building a positive, mutually-beneficial relationship with your manager
  • Communicating effectively with your manager
  • Negotiating with your manager to set realistic performance expectations and gain access to the resources you need to succeed
  • Coping with “bad boss” behaviors such as conflicting demands, micromanaging, etc.
