Has this been an usually stressful year for you? Have you had to deal with one round of layoffs after another? Has the departure of employees required those of you remaining to do more and more, with less and less — increasing everyone’s stress exponentially?
How do you manage a team or a department when faced with such a firefight?
When your group is buried under a mountain of emails, how do you keep your people motivated; how do you get them to buy into your vision?
How do you ignite the same passion people possessed when they were last promoted, last hired or, for that matter, last acknowledged and recognized?
First and foremost, you need to enhance communication and reduce the stress! Luckily, there IS a viable solution to your problem, one that will significantly increase satisfaction and result in enhanced trust and productivity.
As a manager, you must inspire respect, not demand it. It’s up to you to communicate the insights of the group, so great ideas are generated, shared and embraced.
We Provide the Clue!
Dr. Clue has spent over 25 years improving compassion, caring, communication and trust for hundreds of Fortune 500 companies.
We know what works long term (and what is doomed to failure).
A band-aid approach (like bowling, mini-golf or escape rooms), will not get you there! Short-term “teambuilding” programs may increase the competitive spirit within the department or company you are managing, but competition needs to be diverted outward, to the marketplace.
The last thing you need is a frustrating escape room-like experience that INCREASES STRESS levels while reducing communication, not enhancing it.
Nor does the quarterly “happy hour” deliver long-lasting benefits. Unstructured, non-facilitated social events may provide a small amount of immediate escape and pleasure, but the benefits, if any, are short-lived, and gone in the wink of an eye.
At Dr. Clue, our objective is to secure a long-term win-win for you, tearing down barriers, encouraging open communication (without fear of recrimination) and achieving success that stretches without stressing.
We facilitate a safe, stimulating environment that nurtures innovation, encourages communication and boosts understanding.
We teach new work skills that participants learn, practice and master.
The Clue for your success is a structured, facilitated problem-solving framework that encourages:
- Connections, bonds and compassion for each other
- Speaking without fear of recrimination
- Lateral thinking
- The sharing of individual strengths and weaknesses
- The creation of mini groups that collaborate, (not compete) and promote cross-team competition
- The time honored business principal that … you cannot do it all alone!
“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts”
