These days, words like team building and leadership development have become overused, superficial and diluted in the work place. Yet addressing outgrown and dying systems as well as relationship dynamics which have become dysfunctional due to neglect and conflict avoidance are real issues that need attention.
How can you trust that the consultants you hire will really support your team in making lasting change and creating workplace harmony within your organization? Change is a constant that we best embrace, and approach with a posture of curiosity and discovery. The potency of real culture change and leadership development is only as potent and in depth as the facilitators/consultants who guide the collective processes. A consultant who can create connection points and understanding with almost every kind of person is essential, as well as their ability to utilize leading edge facilitation tools and team development simulations.
However, the primary consideration when calling in consultants is to look for individuals who themselves are committed to excellence and who live their own lives with a high bar of relational harmony – it’s part of what they must help you create in your organization.
You can trust a facilitator that is experienced and comfortable with the territory of human complexity they are willing to explore, and help you make sense of. Further, you can trust that facilitators, who can tune into a group’s intelligence, are themselves living the ongoing practice it takes to lift human potential. As a result, they can walk your team through a challenge, a leap, and lead to amazingly beneficial shifts of your workplace culture and workplace harmony.
