All workplaces, regardless of how harmonious they are, encounter difficult and highly charged situations. They crucially demand the ability to communicate effectively and compassionately. Organisations regularly face restructuring, leadership change and demographic shifts. Therefore, they need to learn how to deftly navigate these situations to flourish as a team. Through a series of carefully facilitated activities we train staff in how best to:
- Establish and connect with collective purpose
- Develop awareness of behavioural patterns
- Communicate dissenting perspectives
- Creatively use and respond to feedback
This is ideal for teams looking for facilitation around communication, culture change and conflict resolution.
CITY OF YARRA
Working with the City of Yarra’s Youth Services team, we conducted Professional Development training to assist and enhance their capacity to effectively engage marginalised young people. These staff training sessions further consolidated our work with Yarra’s Youth Ambassadors Program.
GLOBAL POVERTY PROJECT
Polykala delivered a Team Building workshop for an Interstate volunteer training weekend. 40 volunteers for the Global Poverty Project participated in a series of exercises and activities designed to maximise group work and encourage creative participation.
Polykala was engaged by the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards to train the facilitation team and develop group resilience amongst the team's members. Polykala employed the case-in-point approach to provide challenges for the team to navigate and reflect upon.
Polykala delivered the first session of Farmer Incubator's pilot program, working with the team to establish a collective purpose as well as introduce a range of tools for navigating team dynamics.
