Transforming Teams

Do you or your team have a challenge, project, initiative, new policy, or new program coming up in 2021? Would you like dedicated space and time to work through your project, in collaboration with other local leaders and with the support of expert consultants? Do you want to do that at an affordable price? If so, Transforming Teams is designed for you. 

You can apply as an individual or as a full team – the important thing is that you have a project or challenge you’re committed to working on through the program. As a participant, you will engage with our expert leadership development facilitators, business coaches, and DEI consultants. They will help support you in your project and give you perspective on your existing team dynamics and performance. Additionally, you will connect with, learn from and support the other local teams and organizations participating in the program.

 

So, how will the program work?

Individuals: 

  • Apply with a project/challenge/opportunity you’re facing in your workplace
  • Through the program, you’ll learn targeted skills, tools and frameworks for your specific challenge.
  • You’ll collaborate with other teams and individuals – seeing how they are addressing their organizational challenges, getting their feedback on what you’re working on, and learning from expert consultants and facilitators. 
  • Receive feedback on your leadership and work style through a facilitated peer coaching structure. 

Teams: 

  • Apply with a project/challenge/opportunity in mind.
  • Through the program, your team will learn targeted skills, tools and frameworks for your specific challenge.
  • You’ll collaborate with other teams and individuals – seeing how they are addressing their organizational challenges, getting their feedback on what you’re working on, and learning from expert consultants and facilitators. 
  • Receive feedback on your teams functionality and health, improving trust, communication and team effectiveness.
  • Learn and practice peer coaching within your team. 

Ultimately, Transforming Teams is for people who deeply care about outcomes and making a positive impact in collaboration with other experienced Triangle-based leaders. In your application, you’ll articulate the general challenge, project or opportunity you or your team would like to focus on throughout the program. 

The program is open exclusively to Leadership Triangle alumni and their teams. If you are participating as a team, at least one member of your team must be a LT alum. If you are participating as an individual, you must be a LT alum. 

Structure:

From February 17 – May 19, Transforming Teams will meet weekly, from 9am-11am on Wednesdays via Zoom. This is the “intensive” portion of the program, where we will engage new skills, tools and frameworks together.

After the three month intensive, we will meet 1x/mo as a cohort through the remainder of 2021. These 90 minute monthly gatherings will serve as accountability check-ins, support structures to continue working through challenges, and opportunities to peer coach. Timing of those meetings will be set by the cohort.

COVID-19 Measures: The safety of our participants is a top priority. In response to COVID-19, we are offering our 2021 program in a virtual format. While all learning will happen online, we will offer opportunities for the cohort to meet and network in person (outside, socially distanced, and with masks provided).

You may be the right fit for this program if:

  • You and your team want a fun, positive environment where you can work together to make an impact on a project or initiative you care about.
  • Your team is experiencing tension or the feeling of being stuck.
  • You’ve been considering hiring an Executive Coach to support you in moving a project forward or working through a business challenge.
  • You’re interested in applying a DEI lens to your work and want to engage DEI consultants to support you and your team in making that happen. 
  • You want to learn new leadership skills and tools, like peer coaching, design thinking, and strategic visioning. 
  • You are a LT alum who knows the power of our personal leadership development programs and wants to apply your personal learning into your organizational challenges. 

 

THIS ISN’T A FORMULAIC PROGRAM WITH A SET CURRICULUM.

This is about serving the needs of individuals and teams trying to make real improvements in their workplaces and in the Triangle. Ultimately, the choice of frameworks and tools will be responsive to what projects you, and other members of the cohort, bring to the application process. For instance, if multiple teams are working on an issue specific to HR/Culture, we will add a tool or framework to the program that meets that need. Our intention is to remain adaptive and responsive. 

Potential tools we may offer include:

  • Building our Learning Community – Authentic leadership & Equity
  • Design Thinking & Strategy – Scoping your challenge/opportunity
  • The Fundamentals of Peer Coaching – Training with a Certified Coach
  • Applying an Equity Lens – Equity Audit of your challenge/opportunity/project with DEI consultant
  • Organizational Change – Leading through Change & Complexity

Cost:

$5000 per team, up to 5 people ($1000pp for any additional team members).
Individuals apply on a sliding scale, $1500-$5000 per person. Limited partial scholarships available.

Early application deadline*: December 15, 2020

Final application deadline: January 26, 2021

Space in the program is limited. If you are interested in participating, please apply early

“The organizational insights and team leadership training I received through Leadership Triangle were of a higher caliber, and of more use to me, than those I received during two years of a highly rated, full-time, MBA program. This is a great program, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to increase their performance and satisfaction as a leader in the workplace, at any level, and in any industry.”
