CREATING RESILIENT WORKPLACES
Margaret J. Wheatley
We coach leaders and teams together to create teams that are better aligned, more collaborative, more efficient and more effective.
Successful organizations are purposeful in defining their values. They focus on creating alignment through strategy, processes and people.
Helping leaders develop their full potential contributes to the organisation’s success as well as leveraging the collective intelligence and creative powers of the team.
“I have learned many new tools and processes that I have been able to implement immediately with my client groups—helping them to get unstuck. Thank you!”
Experiencing the Relationship System Intelligence (RSI) tools selected by Lisa and Suzanne and using them to work through some of our own team challenges made our conversations even more powerful. The tools are refreshing - very clear and practical, and helped us get underneath the surface and discuss “undiscussables”. As such, we have developed a greater appreciation for each other’s worlds, enhanced our team communication and are well positioned for future tasks that we will be asked to lead.
“Expect greater depth, increased focus and superb ‘connecting power’ for your team!”
As Organizational Development (OD) practitioners, we know that conversations are essential for surfacing multiple perspectives at work. It was really nice to have two facilitators to work with our team - Suzanne and Lisa work well as a team; they have a very down to earth style and did a good job of balancing their commitment to get through an agenda with allowing the team the time to talk about what is most important to us.
Working with Lisa Cormier and Associates/Connection Matters has enabled the Management Team to take time away from their day-to-day file management and think strategically. The exercises completed have helped us be aware of our similarities and differences. The process has benefited our organisation - we now have a clearer sense of our organisation – both in terms of how we see ourselves and where we want to be. It has united us.
Lisa Cormier and Associates/Connection Matters brings many years of experience and excellent skills, insight and coaching. They are objective. They have access to many different tools or strategies to respond to client needs and circumstances and are very adaptive to the needs and changing circumstances. They listen to the needs of the client and will check their understanding of expectations, offer well considered and professional proposals, and regularly check-in with clients to ensure alignment of delivery with expectations. They are punctual and dependable, providing timely proposals, updates, plans and reports.
