Introduction

Our CLARIFY & CONTRACT Online Team Workshops facilitate a leader and their team quickly reach shared understandings of their expectations and needs of each other and commit to how they are going to work together going forward. This session accelerates a team moving into a high-performance mode and sets the foundation for healthy team dynamics that will serve it well through challenges and times of celebration.
The CLARIFY & CONTRACT workshops run over a half-day and are designed so that they model healthy dialogue and collaboration for the team and produce a ‘contract’ for working together that each member of the team is happy to sign up to.

Our Approach

Our CLARIFY & CONTRACT process starts with a discovery session with the team leader where we get familiar with the history and context of the team and share the details of the process with them so that they are happy and confident engaging in it.
The CLARIFY & CONTRACT workshop itself is a carefully designed, structured facilitated conversation that guides the participants through the process of sharing their expectations and listening openly to the expectations of others. The facilitators, Betty and Miriam, are skilled at creating environments that are safe for individuals to speak openly and honestly in and to engage with their fellow participants in an atmosphere of trust and respect.
The outcomes of the workshop will be captured and shared in PDF format with the team by Mojo For Leaders.
