Access Continuum’s COVID response toolkit for leaders, teams and organizations

Continuum Consulting Services LLC

Organizational success depends on stakeholders and partners coming to the table with enterprise mindsets and cross-functional collaboration skills.

But back-to-back meetings and deadlines take precedence over building the collaborative relationships so critical to solving today’s complex organizational challenges.

One Team of Leaders, a multi-faceted initiative ideal for matrixed organizations and cross-functional teams, empowers partners, departments, and stakeholders to coalesce into “one team” that operates with a leadership mindset.

The result is strategic alignment and a natural inclination to “reach across the silo” to leverage the talent required to overcome organizational challenges and deliver results together.

How It Works

Custom-designed One Team of Leaders engagements include options from a slate of features.

We start with a Continuum Climate Study using surveys and interviews to explore organizational dynamics, surface core needs and challenges, build trust and rapport, and collect information used to design a retreat and process that will deliver maximum impact.

We then design and facilitate a Continuum Retreat to build cross-functional team cohesion and leverage team strengths to surface solutions.

During the retreat, participants learn applicable leadership tools, rally around three to four organizational challenges; design action plans; and co-create partnering agreements needed to deliver the plan. Action planning teams often stay together following the retreat to ensure implementation.

Why It Works

Engagement, empowerment and a paradigm shift make One Team of Leaders work every time.

Gone are the days when problems and decisions could be pushed up to senior leaders to solve. Today, success requires a mental shift in how individual team members think and work together, from “It’s not my problem to solve” to “I own this problem to solve.”

Everyone is a leader in his/her/their area of influence, regardless of position.

When the team adopts a leadership mindset that drives every interaction every day, positive change results. Not only does a culture of proactive leadership emerge but new lines of communication are established, and alignment, trust and commitment are enhanced.
