DEVELOPMENT ETHOS AT MEON SPRINGS
"helping teams see things differently"
As well as being fun and enjoyable, our team building and training activities all focus on five areas of development and tie into the model, originally proposed by Patrick Lencioni in his best selling book "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team.
Although there is no magic wand to transform a dysfunctional team into a functional one, there are inputs that can help.
At Meon Springs, we focus on ensuring the right inputs are selected to make your Team Development as powerful and enjoyable as possible.
Using a combination of team building activities and training inputs, we can design a day that focuses entirely around this.
The aim being to help participants
There is nothing better than a team working on a shared problem that requires them to work together to get a result.
In this area we have and continue to design Treasure Hunts, Escape Rooms and a number of other challenges that are active, fun and engaging. Much of the development comes in reflecting on the challenge, looking at what happened, why that was significant and what to do next.
Visioning and Planning
Without a great vision and good organisation, teams cannot function properly.
Based on scenario planning, constraints management, scheduling systems and project management skills we have and are developing a number of training workshops, which help businesses fill the gaps in this crucial area. We also do this in a fun, interactive and experiential way.
The fourth area is Team Leadership. Without good leadership, teams simply cannot function. Our preferred style of leadership is one whereby those doing the work have as much responsibility and accountability as they want or are able to take. This requires very careful management and a lot of skill and trust of business owners. It does however produce the most functional and scalable type of business that you can have.
The final area is around perspective and awareness. Without a good sense of perspective and a healthy dose of self-awareness much of working life can become overwhelming, depressing or full of anxiety. For this we are developing a series of workshops around this area, with the aim (in thinking terms) of helping team members separate the chaff from the wheat.
