Is your team struggling to achieve its goals?


01-01-2010

RiverRhee Consulting's Elisabeth Goodman, and new Associate John Riddell have been developing a new integrated framework that will help teams achieve their goals. It blends key components of project, change and knowledge management with process improvement techniques in a simple step-by-step approach that teams can learn in a 1-day workshop.

Do your teams struggle to achieve their goals? 
 
Do teams in your organisation have varying success rates?
 
Are you finding established methods for tackling goals too complex, time-consuming or costly?
 
Are the experts you call on focused on applying their own methodologies in too much detail? 
 
RiverRhee Consulting's Framework for Achieving Team Goals
is a simple and practical approach that you and your team can learn in one day and apply immediately within your organisation.
 
It blends key components of project, change and knowledge management with process improvement techniques in a step-by-step process that you can tailor to your needs.

The Framework combines the rigour and structure of project management, with attention to people and processes, the effectiveness and efficiency of process improvement techniques, and the engagement of an organisation’s knowledge and experience.
 
Who is the Framework aimed at?

 
The Framework is ideally suited to small and medium sized organisations, and can be applied in any business sector.  People who will particularly benefit from its use include:

 

  • Team leaders wanting a simple integrated approach to achieving team goals.
  • Individuals within teams who would like to influence the way they and their teams achieve goals, in a simple but effective way. 
  • Practitioners of knowledge, change, project management and process improvement techniques wanting a more holistic approach to meeting team goals.

How is the Framework taught?
 
Teams are taken through a 1-day interactive in-house workshop based on a simulated team goal.  There is a pre-workshop diagnostic to ensure that the training is tailored to the delegates’ requirements, and an optional follow-up health-check to review how the approach is being implemented.

When I started RiverRhee I knew that I wanted to make a difference to individuals, managers and teams in the workplace. I thought then it was about sharing the principles, methodologies and tools that would enable them to do their best thinking.

I soon realised that it’s all about people too: if we can understand ourselves and others better, we can learn to communicate and interact with each other better, be more productive and deal with change more effectively.

Both of the above are still part of the mix, but my focus now is on the inner brilliance that is within each of us: how we can choose and learn to express that more vividly and consistently in our work and in our everyday life. I look forward to exploring these three levels with you.
