TIGERS® Manager As Facilitator Training

Improve Cooperation Among Employees and Departments for High Performance Results

Proven Process

Facilitating High Performance Teams does not happen by chance. There is a proven process for organization leaders to facilitate high performance outcomes. When the manager facilitates to bring people together to work toward solutions, their teams accomplish more with higher levels of commitment and accountability.

Facilitating group dynamics the right way creates team buy-in. In our training the manager will learn to:

  • Facilitate in the correct order, the order in which diverse people think.
  • Reduce group conflict and restore positive behavior.
  • Remove closely held positions so that good decision making is achieved with the highest levels of agreement, commitment and accountability.

 Participants of TIGERS Manager as Facilitator learn and apply expert group dynamic facilitation methods for decision-making, problem-solving and planning that rolls out and executes successfully.

The commonsense facilitation methods and best practices you learn create high levels of commitment and accountability. You will receive re-usable resources that produce successful measurable results. The resources are compatible with other assessments and training you already use such as:  DISC, diversity training and conflict resolution training.

 Systemic Approach

There are 3 levels of training to advance managers to become facilitators of highly effective teams. Any employee who is managing in-person or remote workers can benefit and so will their teams. 

All Training Provides:

  • A successful, research-based team development and facilitation system that is sustainable and grows with your departments and organization
  • A reliable, systematic approach to team facilitation that continuously improves upon the way teams work.
  • A system that provides a foundation learning structure for your other work group and team development efforts.
  • Training outcomes that keep work groups engaged in goal achievement.
  • Leaders who effectively facilitate high commitment team decision-making and problem-solving.

 When you have a group of five or more employees to enroll in any one of our training levels, we can bring the event to you. In this case, we will customize this training for you and use your own goals within the training design. We can also hold most of these training sessions virtually.

In addition to remote teams this training is appropriate for any agile team or team working on a project or change initiative such as:

  • Remote Teams
  • Project planning
  • Program launches

  • Instill accountability from the inside out
  • Garner a greater level of commitment
  • Teach teams the behaviors that build strong teams and behaviors that cause problems.
  • Create team understanding for behavior categories and terms
  • Help teams identify their next steps.
  • Quickly generate creativity and focus

  • Catalyze integrated thinking

  • Managing change 

Manager-as-Project-Leader

Teach managers to shift from the traditional manager-as-supervisor to manager-as-project-leader. This is a shift from time-based management to results and outcome-based management. This requires different levels of communication, levels which are more in line with a project plan. Also, the supervisor needs to move to using more planning tools to track that the employee is working on something that needs to get done.

When moving to a manager-as-project-leader model, you need to incorporate the human piece into your plan design. You will learn to incorporate the dynamics of the team including mitigating the already formed unproductive habits and behaviors that exist in the organization.

Plan for Humans

Teach others to incorporate the human piece in to their project plan design and how to manage change. Your plan has to incorporate the human and behavior dynamics of the team that takes into account their already formed habits and behaviors in the organization. TIGERS brings the human aspect into project management.

Be Agile

For teams needing to adapt to rapid change and pivot on a dime. There could be a sudden change in budget, a new audience, change in direction or sudden change in workplace. This AGILE activity-based-training helps your team develop the behaviors needed to be flexible and have buy-in so you can realign instantly.     

Improve Team Communication

Helps project teams that have a breakdown in communication. Within the project there is a communication piece so that people are kept in the loop. How do you influence the workforce behavior pattern? Do you have the language to engage others and measure if your change initiative has no traction? This workshop will address this. 

Prepare for Change

Teach leaders to identify when your team does not have the capacity to change and what to do about it. Does your team have the behavior to be interdependent? Are you still stuck with silo’s with groups competing? Teach them to identify what prework your team may need before they are able to move to be an effective AGILE team.

You will facilitate this activity-based workshop appropriate for leaders of remote teams, agile teams or teams that require an actionable timeline from vision to implementation.

  • TIGERS Team Wheel Game
