Leadership and Team Coaching Building Cohesive Teams Team Alignment Program Finding CLARITY
Team Alignment Every year, leaders need to ensure their teams have clar-ity about the purpose of their department within the organi-zation. Traditionally, this is ac-complished with one or two day planning and team building ses-sions. This year due to the pan-demic, it is not adviable to bring people together in one room, however today, team alignment is more important than ever be-fore. The virtual work situations spawned during the pandemic have some benets, like reduced commute times, increased pro-ductivity, decreased time-wast-ing small talk, increased exibil-ity and for some, a real work life balance. While collaborative tools and video conferencing help teams communicate, it has been increasingly difcult to ensure teams are cohesive and have a clear understanding of objec-tives, expectations, and their results for the organization. Due to the amount of dis-ruption your team has experi-enced this year, they need to
Discover the Team Alignment Processreect back to understand what worked, what didn’t work, what could have been done differ-ently, and to nd solutions to their unique personal challeng-es. In the past, you brought team members together in a ca-sual social environment to fos-ter connections and build closer bonds. Today, your team mem-bers need to develop these personal connections more than ever before, to overcome feel-ings of isolation. In the past, a facilitator used interactive exercises to connect, discover new ideas, uncover problems and develop new solutions. This year calls for a virtual approach because teams cannot physically be to-gether to complete exercises. Trying to simply replicate past formats in a virtual setting to facilitate team alignment will not be effective due to how people interact virtually and ex-perience screen fatigue. OceanBlue Strategic de-signed a virtual solution to an-nual team alignment sessions, by understanding how people interact with virtual tools.
