Competency Mapping and SWOT Workshop
Competency Mapping and SWOT workshop is a way assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a individuals and teams. It is mainly about identifying individual’s job skills and strengths in areas like leadership, teamwork and decision-making. This workshop also assesses areas like emotional intelligence and behavior style. The outcome of this workshop can be used to understand how to best use individuals or how to form a diverse team by combining the strengths of different individuals to build high performing teams.
Experiential Learning Workshop
Every member in the organization has some “blind spots” in their own abilities. These are the opportunities to adjust their behaviors, improve their performance and get better results. The challenge for individuals is to identify these opportunities to act upon. The Experiential Learning Workshop we provide helps uncover these “blind spots”.
Experiential Learning is a journey, a process – that provides experience naturally, in right context, in right conditions and support. We believe that experiential learning is truly the most effective way to facilitate learning as it guides and supports the learner on their journey of self-discovery. The learner experiences it, sees the opportunity and identify potential action items to change their behaviors, enhance their performance and create different results. Experiential learning helps in nurturing collaborative and learning culture in your organization, engaging your people, improving performance and driving business impact.
Training and Certification
One of the important characteristics of an organization with Learning Culture is an environment where the team members are continuously and collectively seek improvements through new skills, new knowledge and new ways to achieve the organizational goals. Trainings and certifications lay path forward for individuals on their Learning Journey. In the process of transforming “People” to “Right People” trainings and certification are critical elements to move employees move from one stage to other during the Learning Journey. A high performing team is a good mix of people having different competencies at different levels. During Learning Journey, these team members go through four stages :
Training and Certification helps team members to reach to the 3rd level where start performing with consciousness to their competencies. Depending on the stage on Learning Journey and maturity members can choose the trainings we offer:

Coaching to build Evangelists
During the Learning Journey, once all the team members reach the 4th stage of Unconscious Competence, the team starts performing. At this time they need support to keep up the pace. They need help to reach their full potential. We believe this is best accomplished by someone within the team who is with the team always. These individuals are the leaders who are striving for the continuous improvements and high performance of the team. We provide one to one coaching to these handpicked individuals from your organization to transform them in to an “Evangelists”. The coaching may also including collaborating with other leaders to make the workspace a high performance environment – one that helps everyone to perform at their best. Typically this engagement starts with finding out people’s “Current State” – their own development plan, ambitions. Then, it moves on to explore and identify the actions required for the transformation in to an Evangelists.
Coaching to build Self-Organized Teams
People is critical driver for achieving success and people form teams who build products. Delivery team is the curtail link in the entire value chain of product development. It does not really matter if it is a functional team or project team or a delivery team, people active their goal when they work together effectively and efficiently. When this “team work” is missing, you will start observing hostility, conflicts, confusion within your team. These symptoms can pull the performance and productivity of an organization down injecting waste at various levels (e.g. too much of technical debt). You will have to “push” them toward the goal, “manage” their work, “command and control” their tasks.
A self-organized team on other hand, is a group of self-motivated individuals, who work together toward a common goal, have the ability and authority to take decisions and readily adapt to changes. They will use pull system to ensure sense of ownership. They collaborate to meet the commitment. They create Learning Culture around them by continuously enhancing their skills. They invest their time in innovation and improvements.
With our well evaluated coaching process, we can help you transform your teams in high performing self-organized teams. We engage ourselves with the team on daily basis to:
- Inspect and Adapt
- Help them get “clear directions” from the business to make right decisions
- Teach them the importance of “visual management” buy introducing information radiators alike story board or Kanban task board
