As the leader of a team or organization, there are times when the best course of action is to pause, assess and see how to move forward.
Some of these moments are planned.
Like an annual board or leadership retreat,
or a strategic planning event.
At other times, challenges, issues, changes or crises arise which need to be addressed ... for example:
Sometimes these issues or planned events can be handled directly by the leadership team or board.
But there are limitations to working "inside the system."
More often than not, an outside facilitator can bring many advantages.
At Basileia, we are experts in designing, planning, implementing and facilitating the process that leads to "conversations that matter."
We design and facilitate conversations that are critical for team or organizational success through a process that enhances unity and connection among the group while at the same time advances the group towards its strategic goals and initiatives.
When all voices can be heard and considered, your team will have collective clarity about what is working well, and what needs attention.
Further, when each member of the team sees the collective perspective of the "current reality" and the "desired future," then the wisdom of the group can be harnessed to chart the path ahead.
Our approach is not to solve current issues, but to acknowledge them, and bring full focus on how to create the "desired future."
By creating "whole-team" or "multi-stakeholder" conversations, you not only benefit from multiple perspectives and create greater unity, you also get "build-in" and support across the team or organization for the new initiatives that arise.
