When I work with you as a Team Guide, I help you and your team to understand and work with any interpersonal tensions that you may be encountering along the boundaries between your collective inner and outer worlds. The purpose of successfully navigating these interpersonal tensions is not simply to indulge in some touchy-feely group therapy but to actually connect the healthy and positive flow of ideas and imaginings from the inner world of the team members into consistently successful outcomes in the outer world. As I work with you as a Team Guide, I enable you and your team to become more aware of how you naturally disseminate yourselves into each other and how you can all use this awareness to connect far more powerfully and positively.
The conventional approach to working with teams is often to treat a team as a homogenous unit, with every team member’s perspectives and opinions being closely aligned. The reality is, however, that trying to build a team by ‘forming, storming, norming, performing’ usually results in a very normal team that produces very normal performances. When working with you as a Team Guide, rather than working with a team as a homogenised unit, I help you and your team to become more aware of the boundaries between each other as individuals and also between your inner and your outer worlds. Actively working with the connections between team members enables them to make much more sense of any tensions that you may be experiencing across interpersonal boundaries. Instead of just trying to avoid or endure these interpersonal tensions, I help you the individuals within the team to use them as a powerful source of healthy and positive insight. As you and your team become more aware of how to work with boundary tensions, your team naturally becomes far more effective in producing outcomes that consistently amplify individual contributions.
My value to you as a Team Guide is in helping all the members of your team to consistently and successfully navigate their interpersonal boundaries so that you can healthily connect as individuals within your team and successfully get to action. This includes showing you and your team how to work with the language and imagery that you all instinctively use to connect with each other, so that you can understand each other with greater clarity and trust. I also share how to work with the Self Connection Process, enabling you and your team to successfully navigate any challenging tensions that you may be encountering along your interpersonal boundaries.
