Resolving Resolutions: use science-led behavioural change for team success

Tuesday 9th February 2016
An interactive event with Chris Taylor, William Feeney, and Aileen Armstrong  

Would you be happy with an 88% failure rate?  

Probably not, and yet that's the reality for our New Year's Resolutions. Across the world, people, teams and organisations set goals and resolutions for the new year, and then fail miserably. Why? A 2007 study from the University of Bristol suggests it’s because…

·         35% of people make unrealistic goals,

·         33% of people don't keep track of their goals, and

·         23% of people forget about their goals

What's needed, therefore, is a system that ensures you and your team

a)    make smaller, manageable goals (that build on each other),

b)    track the progress of your goals, and

c)    remain accountable to your commitments.

Luckily, we've got just the solution for you. As one New Year (solar) passes into our memories, we'll be holding another New Year event (lunar/Chinese) that will demonstrate how you and your team can set measurable, trackable, and realistic commitments to change habits and drive performance. 

So, if you would like to get more from your available resources in 2016 and build a high performance and accountable culture, then you’ll want to register for the event now. You’ll walk away with:

  1. 1)     A greater understanding of the connection between neuroscience discoveries and best practice workplace learning and development

  2. 2)     A ‘taste-test’ of an Actionable Conversation, so you can experience their power and elegance

  3. 3)     A sneak-peek at some of the new learning and development technology being rolled out in 2016

  4. 4)     Some fantastic new connections (we only invite awesome people)

  5. 5)     A tummy full of yummy food

In addition, those who attend will be set up with an Actionable Conversation to run with their own team (valued at $440).

I approached achieving SYNERGY as my team had recently gone through some considerable challenges and I believed it would be useful for us to look at our communication and working styles in order to develop stronger working relationships. As a team of human service professionals, we presented a unique challenge for Aileen as we are trained counsellors and frequently facilitate groups ourselves. Aileen developed a focused program with the DISC profiling model as the foundation for activities that explored our interactions with each other and developed new understandings and tolerance. The program was developed in collaboration with me and I was very happy with the final training day which was very full, but was also delivered in a casual, friendly and fun way. Perfect for our organisation!

Since the training my staff have commented on feeling more connected to the team and the general improvement of morale in our office. I would have no hesitation in recommending achieving SYNERGY to other Managers in all sectors as well as the Not for Profit Sector.
