Team Emotional Intelligence coaching
Using the Team Emotional Intelligence Survey®, we help your team understand and craft strategies to improve interpersonal dynamics, leading to constructive interactions, collaborative work processes, and enhanced team effectiveness.
Research shows that teams are more creative and productive when they can achieve high levels of participation, cooperation, and collaboration among members. Such results require mutual trust among members, a sense of group identity - a feeling among members that they belong to a unique and worthwhile group, and a sense of group efficacy - the belief that the team can perform well and that group members are more effective working together than apart. Backed by 15 years of research, the Team Emotional Intelligence Survey® measures how effectively your team's culture manages emotion.
The Team Emotional Intelligence Coaching can help your team achieve powerful results:
Engagement and cooperation
Follow-through on commitments
High levels of creativity and innovation
Maximized activity and energy
Resilience and adaptability to change
Higher quality and performance
Burnout prevention and recovery - individuals & groups
Employee burnout has reached epidemic proportions with more than 50% of workers describing themselves as feeling burnt out and as much as 95% of corporate leaders indicating that employee burnout is sabotaging workforce retention. While research has significantly focused on burnout in the workplace, people can experience burnout in any aspect of their life.
There are six key components of that contribute to burnout: workload, control, reward, community, fairness, and values. Whether or not you experience burnout is related to the extent to which you feel that you have input into and a sense of control over what you do and how you do it; you have sufficient support and resources to do what is expected of you; there is alignment between your own values and those of the organization/social context; you receive appreciation, recognition, and reward, and/or feel secure in your role; your workload is manageable, not only in terms of the amount of work, but also in terms of the complexity and urgency that is expected; you or others are treated fairly and with transparency; there is a sense of community and collegiality, and that conflict and emotions are handled constructively; and you receive positive feedback.
Potential for burnout emerges when one or more of these six areas is chronically mismatched between an individual's expectations (which can often be self-imposed) and capabilities and his or her career and/or home situation. Over time, engagement and performance erode not only because people have too much to do, but because the demands being placed on them exceed the physical and emotional resources they have available to deal with the stressors.
We will help you to avoid or recover from burnout by helping you develop those resources. You will:
Get clear on your values and passions
Learn to practice self care and renewal
Reduce the time and energy you spend worrying
Identify areas of mis-match that lead to burnout
Identify where you want to make changes
Create and execute a plan to thrive
