Create a Winning Team

This workshop is created to give a fresh boost to the motivation of your team. By making the objectives and responsibilities of the team clear members of the team know what they have to do to complete the transformation towards a winning team. This workshop gives everyone in your team an opportunity to voice frustration, to create a collaboration build on trust. Trust within a team is only possible if the underlying conflicts and irritations are of the table.

  • The workshop starts with naming the challenges and obstacles within your team. This will show the obstacles on the road, and will reveal what prevented the team to reach its fullest potential;
  • Through a clear and concrete roadmap you will work together to reach the desired aim;
  • After the workshop, your team has a clear goal and a joint vision, in which every member knows which steps need to be taken and what their individual responsibilities are.

At Bureau LAPOUTRE we believe in achieving sustainable results in a way that is based on trust and fun. We have no standard format, every team and situation is unique so we adjust the workshop to your team. We often give our workshop in an interesting and relaxing location.

  • "Michel has facilitated a team kick-of session for the Erasmus University Rotterdam as the start of a very ambitious SAP renewal project. His ability to connect with the team members from different project layers was great, he managed to keep them all involved and connect with each other. Michel also managed to create a suitable and fun day programme in a very short time frame (in terms of preparation), in line with our wishes and goals with a convincing result."

  • "I know Michel as a facilitator for various team trainings. In the session he supervised, his added value, was very well in connected with the participants and engaged them well. He was creating the right starting point of my team and being vulnerable himself he created the space for the participants to be vulnerable. In addition, he is result-oriented and has a good ear for what his client is looking for. The energy that the team put into the meeting more than paid off as a result."

  • "With Michel you bring in someone who can listen and analyze well. He initially comes across as quiet and modest, but you soon notice that he brings (and brings in) a wealth of experience and sharpness. Among other things, I experienced him as the organizer and facilitator of a so-called 'away day -sessions'. I've had a lot of them over the years. The ones he led were the best, thanks in part to the attractive working methods. Finally - not insignificant - Michel is just pleasant company."
