Leadership and Management Team Development
At Natural Talent Bristol and South Wales we work with a broad range of global corporate clients and large public sector organizations to assess and develop their CEOs and Senior Management Teams. Our facilitated Senior Team Development days concentrate on identifying key individual and team development areas, often utilizing an online or Face to Face 360 Feedback Review and Talent Assessment Tools, as well as the highly effective Team Needs Questionnaire which provides feedback on the key behaviors needed by effective teams.
The Team Needs Questionnaire identifies the reality of how successful the team really is by asking all team members to score the normal observed behaviors; Natural Talent’s Leadership and Management Consultant then benchmarks the scores against high performing teams. Behaviors include: Confronting Issues, Driving for Results, Communication, Planning, Dealing with Strong Personalities, Decision Making, Meetings Management, Creating a Vision, Trusting each other, Openness, Inspiring Others. Often the scores are much lower than anticipated, which provides a solid platform for development.
The results of the assessments are then collated and fed back to the team with group discussion around what works well in the team and what can be improved on. The outcomes from the Senior Team Development days are a more open and honest culture, a Team contract, signed by all members to improve all interventions and working practices, an increased exchange of constructive Feedback, and an agreed SMART Action Plan for ongoing development.
‘The two exercises the senior management team took part in as part of the Leadership Development Centre were spot on; the scenarios were completely relevant and covered the key issues and challenges we have to deal with on a day to day basis. Thanks to you and Sue for your excellent facilitation of the day and valuable input to the team dynamics.’ CEO, Borough Council
