Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.

Henry Ford

 

Whether as a stand alone event or as part of a larger training initiative, Vast Sky Leadership can lead your group through an interactive session to facilitate improved communication and maximize team performance.


What We Do

Facilitated workshops are a powerful tool to bring your team together, enhance collaboration and bonding, and to establish the working rhythms and agreements needed to propel your team to their full potential.

Topics and the experience are customized to each unique group. Examples include:

  • Setting organizational / team vision

  • Defining team values

  • Structuring team goals and methods

    • Vision/Values/Methods/Obstacles/Metrics (V2MOM)

    • Objectives and Key Results (OKRs)

    • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

  • Learning about the neuroscience of leadership and teams

  • Interpret the level and impact of emotional intelligence on the group

  • Articulating cultural norms, goals, and action plans to shift

  • Exploring mindfulness and self-compassion in the workplace

  • Discussing team dynamics and change management

  • Giving and receiving feedback

  • Building team bonding and collaboration


How we do it

Our first order of business is to connect with the leader to determine the goals of the workshop itself, the definition of success, the obstacles the team is working through, and the most important areas of focus. With that in mind, we deep dive with a few people on the team to formulate a cohesive approach. The outcome is to get under the hood to see what’s working and what needs a bit of fine tuning.

The next step is the Vast Sky Magic: the customized assessment, approach, agenda, and exercises that meets the needs of your team. The outcome is an alignment on vision, strategy, and goals (“the what”) as well as team coaching on the processes, structures, and human factors that propel the team forward (“the how”).


Client Feedback

This workshop was 100% worth the time and investment. In an org that's predominately remote, it's critical to come together and share strategy. 60% of this org was onboarded within 6 months, so it's amazing for us to come together and learn each other's goals, aspirations, and job function.” 
-Lila, SVP of Technology Ecosystem

 

“Vast Sky did an amazing job of building a curriculum that allows us to collaborate. Holistically we identified goals and defined our organization.” 
-Megan, VP Product

 

“By bringing our entire team together to get to know each other better, while working as a team on our team and personal goals and metrics was extremely helpful, useful and productive. I feel more aligned, committed and motivated. Thanks for making this happen!”
-Kate, VP Marketing Executive

 

“I'm walking away with a clear vision of goals, what it takes to get there, and how to measure success!”
-Susan, Manager

 

“This allowed us to coordinate more effectively, reduce redundancy, better communicate the overall strategy internally/externally and think more critically about how each one of us can impact the greater good of the company in a positive way. Nothing replaces face time and especially uninterrupted, dedicated time to review ideas, share feedback and make joint decisions which we can all take ownership because we were a part of the process.”
-Mark, SVP Marketing


 

“We are a natural foods company committed to building a more efficient, highly effective management team.  We engaged Chris to lead our off-site after several failed attempts with other facilitators.  Chris’ approach of guiding the conversations and work sessions, while still allowing the flexibility for our group to work within our own personality dynamics was extremely effective.  Our entire management team has been thrilled with the results and look forward to continuing to work with Chris in the future.”
