Leanup Value Continuum Intro
TRUST AND RESPECT FOR DIVERSITY
Mission critical behaviours for high performance teams
Mutual Trust is a foundational element of a healthy team. Trust is an important conversation because of the dependencies we have as a team in accomplishing our goals Trust is easily understood but hard to create as it is a consequence of attitude and actions that we need to demonstrate consistently towards each other.
And it is particularly difficult when we have a team of diverse individuals who all have different opinions, personalities, experiences and so on. And that is why a conversation about Trust is inherently bound to involve conversation around genuine Respect for such differences.
In this module we take a deep dive into foundational aspects of Trust and Respect as ‘Mission Critical’ behaviours for high performance teams and we do so with 2 very powerful and engaging activities- Lean Up and The Value Continuum.
- ACTIVITY CONNECT- LEAN UP + VALUE CONTINUUM
- LEARNING CONNECT
- MODULE INCLUSIONS
Lean Up is an activity where the teams must work together to place rings on a pole with hooks. There are points corresponding to each of the hooks which are positioned at a fair distance from the start line. Each member takes turns to place the rings as high as he/she can, with the support of the team. There are also certain rules and constrains that the teams have to work with in this activity.
Value Continuum is a powerful activity that highlights the contours of diversity that exist within a team. The members of the team must place themselves at various points of a ‘U‘-shaped layout - The Continuum, depending on the degree of agreement to statements placed at the 2 ends of the ‘U’. These statements are designed to be seemingly divergent and will be placed on either sides of the layout.
In LEAN UP as each member stretches out to do more and reach further, they realize that they are only as good as the rest of the team that enables them. How winning trust of the team-mates enables the person to stretch further is reverse engineered in conversation around specific behaviours that need to be demonstrated consistently to help win that trust.
VALUE CONTINUUM reveals the grey that is behaviour and personality and how differences affect opinions on everyday issues. This activity helps demonstrates the inherent diversity in a team that we may not acknowledge. And that people make opposing choices or have divergent opinions not because they want to but because they are just being themselves. The learning conversations help the team realize that by respecting our differences and interdependencies, this diversity can be a great advantage to the team.
• The Lean-Up Kit comprising a Pole with numbered hooks, a ribbon to mark the perimeter and rings.
• The Value Continuum Kit comprising 3 flags, 6 set of statements and 2 frames.
• Instruction manual on how to run the activity and the watch-out areas of the activity.
• A comprehensive Facilitator guide to help you conduct the sessions and draw the learnings from the observed behaviors.
• Tools that will help you complete the learning cycle by making the participants contextualize these behaviors to their own job roles and create commitments to change.
