Understanding these critical factors is the first step to discerning how a person will react in different environments.

Video lesson

Each behavioral style will be analyzed separately in this lesson to help you identify how each communicates and how you can respond to get the most out of the encounter.

Video lesson

We'll introduce what's most important to prioritize in approaching our objectives in this session. We focus on how there must be an alignment of priorities, especially regarding the team's objectives.

Video lesson

Understanding what motivates us is very personal but critical to success because it drives our actions. Fortunately, mindsets are fluid and can change with time and experience to determine how best to succeed.

Video lesson

While behaviors are instinctive, mindsets guide our personal and professional lives. They are the guiding "north star" or reasons behind the things we do. In this lesson, we'll discuss how mindsets are the one thing a team must have in common to succeed.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 4 – Origin of Mindsets

In this lesson, we'll introduce Spranger's Theory behind the Six Mindsets and how we can determine each's strength through graphical analysis. We then capture each mindset and separate them into the three groups affecting every aspect of our lives.

Video lesson

This lesson prepares you for identifying what is essential or the driving force behind the way an individual chooses to focus their attention. We'll pay attention to the national means and how that can help you "see" the individual's priorities.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll focus on the objective Theoretical mind and how that appears to us. Then we delve into how understanding the objective Theoretical can help a team identify what induces stress and achieve clear communication to maximize their potential.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll present multiple examples of team members' mindsets and how they will interact and work together. We'll pay attention to the subtleties and variances that can affect the team and its members.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 1 – Introduction

This lesson will explain why a team must have a mission, vision, and values that align with the organization. Additionally, we'll show how this alignment provides each team member with an understanding of how their role impacts the team and the organization.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll zero in on the importance of "what" a team is doing - their mission. By answering that question of "what is being done" from the consumer's perspective, you ensure you understand their needs and can meet them without the guesswork.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 3 – Mission (Exercise)

This lesson will present an example mission statement and team members' behaviors and mindsets to illustrate how diverse team players will react and respond to the team mission itself.

Video lesson

When developing a vision for your team, you must identify "who we are" as a team and quantify how we should embrace the future to make a difference in the lives of both employees and customers.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 5 – Vision Exercise

Each team member will need to buy in with the team's vision. Therefore, in this lesson, we'll consider a team member's profile and how they will react and respond to our example organization's vision.

Video lesson

When developing team values, you must define what you enjoy about what you do; by doing so, there will be alignment and congruency among the team members by answering how you carry out the mission.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 7 – Values (Exercise)

Each team member must embrace the same values and how they will impact the completed task. In this lesson, we identify individual team members and how they will approach the values embraced by our example organization.

Video lesson

This application exercise will provide you with the guidelines necessary for developing team M.V.V. statements. We'll prepare for applying these principles in your organization.

Video lesson

Understanding your team's M.V.V. is not enough on its own. We'll also help you identify why your unique role and personality must also have direction. We'll lay the foundation for finding your own M.V.V. in this session.

Video lesson

While wanting to fit in is our nature, we need the intellect of our other team members. Helping you identify where we are, in strengths and weaknesses, allows us to hold tremendous respect for each team member's unique skills and talents.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll lay the groundwork for understanding how to develop respect among team members with an example of a Law Firm. This session will prepare you for the upcoming exercises ahead in this course.

Video lesson

Different teams attract different personalities. Those personalities have strengths and, at times, weaknesses also. This session will help you understand why.

Video lesson

Knowing your team's personalities helps you choose a successful path during times of challenge. Identifying strengths allows team members to demonstrate knowledge that brings value; otherwise, the team relies solely on its leader.

We'll show you the four phases to building a successful team. While forming a successful team is critical, every phase presents its challenges. This lesson will help you identify and confidently address those four phases.

Video lesson

This lesson addresses the variables of team members and how their strengths also identify their weaknesses. We'll provide two group examples before going over how each will impact a team's functioning.

Video lesson

Having objective team members can positively impact the team's task completion. However, too much objectivity may negatively affect team interaction and sensitivity. Therefore, we'll focus on building the necessary trust and finding the objective balance needed for team success.

Video lesson

Having subjective team members can positively impact the team's communication and collaboration. However, too much subjectivity may negatively affect team focus and productivity. Therefore, we'll focus on building the necessary trust and finding the subjective balance needed for team success.

Video lesson

For Customers Only Part 1 – Introduction

Because 68% of change initiatives fail, according to Harvard Business Review, it is incumbent for a team leader to be ready to face the inevitable change during the team's existence. This lesson will kick off our session on change and culture.

Video lesson

We know that all change brings uncertainty, even positive change. This lesson will give you multiple questions to ask yourself (with examples) about the specifics that help team members adjust and adapt to change.

Video lesson

We'll introduce the key factors why change is difficult and why management, team leaders, and team members must commit for the long haul.

Video lesson

This lesson addresses the question posed by the Harvard statistic from earlier: why do two-thirds of the change initiatives fail? First, we'll break it down to learn how each leadership level, middle management, and line employee struggles with the process. Then we focus on how to overcome that.

Video lesson

This lesson will present the three critical elements of success during change and explain how each level of leadership, middle management, and line employees can succeed with these elements in mind.

Video lesson

We will address each aspect of change and its challenges, combined with how you can apply organizational and team knowledge base to your advantage. We'll give opportunities for you to consider what knowledge to use for your team.

Video lesson

Have you ever witnessed pushback in response to change? This lesson will teach how to handle resistance to change, deal with uncertainty, and navigate those challenges through powerful soft skills.

Video lesson

We'll guide you through applying soft skills amid change. Because everyone is different, we'll also go over which behavioral and mindset types respond by welcoming or resisting change.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll provide two very different behavioral and mindset examples to illustrate how you, as a leader, can navigate change with positive results.

Video lesson

The focus of this lesson will be to illustrate how behaviors can impact the change process. We'll use an example of how a strong introvert (opposed to change) can produce positive results based on recognizing and applying their strengths.

Video lesson

The focus of this lesson will be to illustrate how mindsets can impact the change process. We use an example of how an intensely subjective person (open to change despite struggling through the process) can produce positive results based on recognizing and adapting to their priorities.

Video lesson

We'll take everything we have learned during this session to a client example of how the team can prepare for change initiatives. You will use your psychometric results to identify how change impacts you individually and within a team environment.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll apply SMART goal-setting to develop team-based goals. While goal-setting appears to be very individualized, we must remember the team member's personalities to be successful. So, again, referring to your previous lesson, prepare to bring in your team's scores.

Video lesson

In this lesson, we'll point out our team scores: three strengths and three weaknesses. We'll illustrate how you can use your team scores to calculate the specific strong and weaker capacities, where we will overcome and capitalize on them later.

Video lesson

This lesson will ask you to recall your Essentials of Teamwork (from Session 6). We'll ask you to focus on the one you can improve, using our team's weakness as an example to give you direction in this process.

Video lesson

We'll provide an exercise to illustrate the SMART format for developing team-based goals. We will also provide you with links to the free resources on LifeThrive to further supplement your learning, helping you through this process.
