Screenline: Team Alignment / Communication Workshop

Workshop Overview.

This workshop is focused on improving communication in the Strategic Leadership Team (SLT). We utilize two main tools in this workshop, namely the DISC Behavioural Assessments and Safe Communication to enable the SLT to create working relationships that will support open communication, productive collaboration and better results.

The workshop includes training on understanding various elements of the DISC profiling tool.

The primary objective of this workshop is to gain commitment from the SLT to work together as a team on organizational transformation. It will also assist in establishing transparency between the team members.

Goals / Tangible outcomes:

  • DISC reports for all participants. Online assessment (30 minutes) taken at least one week prior to the workshop.
  • Team communication matrix (personalised communication preferences)
  • Communication Commitment Charter. (Creating a safe place for communication to flow)
  • Recommendations on implementation of outcomes and continual reinforcement of these.

If you want your team to be on the same page, create honest and transparent communication amongst team members, then this workshop is for your company.

About me

Mr. Marco Petersen

Business Owner

I’m guessing that as a business owner, you don’t always sleep well at night. Even though you’re working hard and trying hard, sometimes you feel intimidated and overwhelmed trying to do the important and relevant work. You’re looking for (the right) someone to share your ideas and your problems with, who will give you candid feedback, and help you consistently get things over the finish line – whether it’s about your staff, your cashflow, your time management, developing a plan or figuring out how to successfully sell your business and what to do with your free time.

As a former CFO, COO and shareholder for a multi-million Rand international manufacturing business, I know what it means to unlock business value and ensure sustainability for the future. Responsible for Finance, HR, Payroll, SHEQ, IT and Operations, and an ability to lead in times of ambiguity, meant I was able to consolidate vision, culture and team alignment in a merger of three different organisations.

I’m also really good at strategy, with an ability to identify what’s important in any situation and understand how the changing landscape influences individuals and businesses. Put me in a room with an enthusiastic leadership team and I’ll take you through a strategic planning process that navigates to the potential, while avoiding the pitfalls. My years of playing competitive sport at international level have prepared me for this – never underestimate the competition, never take your eye off the ball, and never give up.

Thirteen years of board participation, membership on various business forums, being a shareholder in several companies, and a focus on leadership development, means I’m frequently consulted by senior management to help them positively impact their businesses. And I love it.

I also love leveraging my experience to help business owners achieve their version of success, whatever that looks like. I do this through peer advisory boards, private business coaching, strategic planning, business tools & software and financial services.

Get in touch if you are growth-minded, coachable, and want to build the value of your business.
