Virtual Team Sessions

As a leader, are you looking for ways to engage and support your team?  These interactive sessions were designed, created and evolved over time to meet the demands of today’s teams.  With topics such as Authentic Leadership, Influencing Others and Navigating Through Change, pick and choose the sessions to meet your team’s needs.

  • We are all leaders, regardless of title or position; you are a leader at home, in your community and at work.  Leadership is about the choices you make each and every day. 

    During this session, your team will learn about the foundational characteristics of authentic leadership.  We will explore how these characteristics shape an individual’s leadership approach and discuss strategies to support your team members grow into more confident and effective leaders.  

  • Discover the power of influence: your ability to positively impact others by being authentically you. Whether you’re building a sales plan for a client, or trying to express your opinion during a meeting, we all have moments where we need to harness our power of influence.  

    Have you ever dreamed up a great idea that didn’t gain traction?  Do you struggle to communicate your vision?  In this session, you will learn how to authentically and effectively communicate your ideas.  You will discover your ability to have a positive impact on others, and to inspire them to willingly take action and move things forward. 

  • We all adapt to change differently.  There is the change we choose - internal change - and then there is change that is thrust upon us. Change of any kind presents challenges and opportunities; growth and growing pains.  Change is an active process that requires awareness, choice and action to move forward.  In this session, participants will learn how to identify what is in, and out of, their control.  We will explore how to navigate change, and ways to support ourselves and others through times of transition.  We’ll focus on the process of making and accepting change, and how we can move through it effectively.

  • If your meetings are feeling flat and you’ve noticed that morale seems low, your team might be zoomed out.  In this session, participants will learn practical tips and strategies to stay motivated, engaged and productive.

    It is not about time management.  It is about how you choose to manage your energy through your daily activities.  Believing you have the choice, allows you to consciously manage your energy throughout the day, creating the momentum to not only survive, but thrive. 

  • How well are you and your teammates adapting to this brave new world?  Everyone has their own unique process for navigating through challenging times, and not all strategies are created equally.  This session will help bring awareness to your process, allowing you to more effectively navigate this rapidly changing world.   

    We’ll discuss the four keys to building a resilient mindset, identify individual strengths and stumbling blocks, and develop a roadmap that will allow your team to move through change quicker and have more agency in building your new unNormal. 

  • Have you ever struggled to see a colleague’s perspective?  Have you ever had a disagreement with someone because they didn’t understand your position?  We each have our own outlook which shapes our thoughts, values and beliefs.  And we can all benefit from learning to communicate better and consider other points of view.  

    In this session, your team will explore strategies for improving understanding. You’ll come to recognize how your perspective shapes your judgement, and how you can expand your understanding and tolerance, leading to stronger relationships and a healthier workplace. 

  • Believing in yourself is a truly powerful thing.  Anything is possible when you invest in the innate powers that make you you.  During this session, you and your team members will learn how to harness your strengths and unlock your true potential.

     

    You will be empowered to bring your most authentic self to work, confidently offering your talents and perspectives.  Each person will build their personalized toolkit, designed to support them in achieving success while doing meaningful work.

  • Do you feel confident leading in a virtual world?  Have you been able to adapt your leadership style effectively?  Leaders need to continually build trust and inspire others to reach their full potential, regardless of the circumstances.  Key characteristics of a great leader are empathy, fairness, and strong communication skills.  It’s essential that today’s leaders are able to engage effectively across any platform.  In this session, you and your team will learn simple and effective strategies to improve morale, increase productivity, and ensure effective communication when working within a virtual office environment.

Scala Connects - Nov 20, 2020

Have you ever struggled to see a colleague’s point of view? Have you ever had a disagreement with someone because they didn’t understand your position?

Perspective is defined as having a particular attitude or view of something. We each have our own perspective which shapes our thoughts, values and beliefs.

Mutual respect is possible when you are willing to experience something from another’s perspective. This insight increases your ability to understand and gain clarity on the situation which, in turn supports you in communicating your unique vision to others more effectively.
