THE ACHIEVEMENT ZONE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

BUILDING ACCOUNTABLE,
CONNECTED TEAMS 

Every team leader wants an energetic team that sits in the achievement zone: innovating, being accountable, achieving goals and solving complex problems. It feels great – to both the leader and their direct reports.

Yet, in today's fast-changing world, employees are increasingly feeling overwhelmed, disconnected or anxious about what will happen next.  And leaders are nervous about how to manage and inspire people in this uncertain environment.

But constant change and hybrid work environments aren’t the issue. They are here to stay.

The problem is that leaders are still leading relying on old techniques on how to lead a team - leading as through we all worked face-to-face in a stable world. And it's not their fault - the truth is few leaders have received training on how to lead in this new world.   

And the secret sauce is leaders who create a high trust team culture.

As human beings, we all want to be trusted. Our deepest need is to be visible, to feel heard and that we belong. It doesn’t matter where you work or how you work. If you have trust as the foundation for your team environment, you can put your team anywhere and under enormous pressure, and they will thrive. Adapting to uncontrollable situations, making fast decisions, continually improving and finding new market opportunities.

What team leaders require are easy techniques to improve their confidence in creating a team culture that thrives.  

The good news is that there is a proven time efficient system to help leaders not only reduce their frustration, but improve their team's productivity, health and job satisfaction.

"Marie-Claire is a knowledgeable and engaging presenter who provided a great understanding of our business and broader organisational context.  Marie-Claire ran a series of three “Achievement Zone” workshops with nearly 700 of our Executive Level leaders in the ATO.  The workshops empowered our leaders to look at how they build trust with their teams & stakeholders, and gave them the tools to make effective and lasting change.  By modelling trust and building connection, our leaders will be able to increase engagement and improve overall leadership capabilities."

INTRODUCING THE INTEGRATED TRUST BUILDING SYSTEM

Workplaces require leaders who reassure people that their emotional needs are being met through both verbal and nonverbal communication. 

This involves leaders communicating to the part of the brain that manages trust - the mammalian or limbic brain.  The part of the brain that doesn't understand language, but feelings.

The Integrated Trust Building System has been developed to make it easier for leaders to communicate one powerful ideal - that people are safe, connected and have a shared future together. 

Teams move up into the Achievement Zone when the leader sends the signal “we’re in this together.” 

This program has been designed to help leaders reduce their leadership effort, but double their team impact.

The Integrated Trust Building System forms the map of topics that highlight the path for leadership development programs or as part of an internal conference.

It equips your leaders to more efficiently gets teams out of the Anxiety Zone or Abatement Zone into the Achievement ZoneHelping managers more effectively lead accountable, connected teams that trust each other, in order to free up a leader's time to focus on other tasks.

Drawing on neuroscience to understand the brain’s response to building trust, THE ACHIEVEMENT ZONE program offers team leaders knowledge and tools for both themselves and their teams to thrive.

THE ACHIEVEMENT ZONE program will support your leaders and teams in situations where:

  • Leaders are anxious and overwhelmed with how to lead a hybrid team.
  • Leaders don’t have the skills to build trust across groups.
  • Leaders are getting frustrated with the time it takes to reassure and communicate with employees.
  • Leaders aren't ensuring their teams, and themselves, are accountable to results.

HOW I HELP

Every organisation is different.  And that's why the Achievement Zone Leadership Program is customised to your needs.

Working with your organisation may involve:

  • TRUSTED TO THRIVE keynote - A refreshing way to learn core curriculum and inspire your leaders.  This can be done online or in person.  It is a compulsory before attending the Achievement Zone Leadership Program.  It is based on my book TRUSTED TO THRIVE (launching March 2022).
  • SUCCEED Together® stakeholder interviews.  To really understand what employees need from leaders the best way is to ask them.  Things have changed so much.  These insights then feed into your HR, communication, leadership development and organisational strategies.  The responses provide effective guidance on what topics and tools leaders need to help employees.   
  • The Achievement Zone Leadership Program - This is flexible program where you can select the full three day program for your leaders or select masterclasses from the curriculum below.  It is based on the book TRUSTED TO THRIVE.  Each Masterclass is 90 minutes each which can be extended into half day or full days depending on people's schedules.  If you have opted for stakeholder interviews, tools and examples will be provided for your leaders based on your stakeholder interview results.  This ensures your training is effective and meet the needs of your people.
  • Executive coaching - In addition to training, supplementing it with coaching can vastly improve your leader's confidence in learning and implementing new leadership techniques.
