In an increasingly systematic, interdependent world with complex challenges, the way out is definitely to act collaboratively in the search for solutions. Teamwork is, at the same time, one of the most basic skills and one of the most challenging ones. It’s common, in the programs I carry out, to find teams that are actually a group of individuals, where each one defends their individual interests or those of their respective functional areas. Many times they do not even remember why, in fact, they are together.
This scenario generates an enormous waste in the organizational world. Waste of time, with countless unproductive meetings and, mainly, waste of energy and talent, as it often involves highly skilled professionals, literally wasting their potential.
In this context, and based on UBUNTU’s essence of collaboration, relationship, and interdependence, many organizations turn to me for support in developing teams to function more effectively and truly in order to achieve their goals.
Since 2009 I have carried out hundreds of works in the most diverse areas: marketing, commercial, legal, engineering, operations, human resources, etc. Taking advantage of the distinct edge of working in a network, I count on countless collaborators with the most varied competences and professional experiences. This contributes a lot to the effective and customized design for the specific needs of each team.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Generally, in most team building processes, I apply the following stages:
• Diagnosis: through in-depth interviews and analysis of strategic documents of the team, I try to raise the fundamental issues that we will work on in the development process. At this stage, I look for subtle issues, that is, what is discussed at “coffee time”, the roots that give rise to the challenges faced by the team, among others.
• Planning and Design: based on the issues raised, the organization representatives and me, the facilitator, together design and refine the development flow and stages. In this way, we jointly create the "reference guides" for the workshops we will implement.
• Purpose: creation of a team’s purpose or ways to reconnect it to an existing purpose.
• Roadmap: working fronts so that the teams walk towards the purpose. Inspired by the Integral Model, I try to define with the group the working fronts that will lead the group towards the purposes set.
• Development of Competencies: implementation of development interventions with the purpose of carrying out action plans. Inspired by the PURPOSE Model and the organization’s leadership competencies, development processes so that collaborators are able to face challenges ahead.
Development of Young People
WHAT IS IT?
The SELFtrepreneurship Programs applied to young people was the project that initiated, in fact, my journey towards my purpose. Reflections on the SELFtrepreneurship among people in the beginning of their professional journey make the journey of each individual easier, generating more alignment and coherence between their respective purposes and professional paths.
Organizations increasingly face gaps in their leadership pipeline. In critical moments, they lack leaders capable of facing the significant challenges of growth and also dealing with the doubts and the great and constant changes of the current market.
In this context, organizations noted the importance of investing in structured programs for young people, with the purpose of accelerating the growth and development of professionals with high potential, precisely to feed the succession process of leaders in the organization.
Since 2009, I have developed customized methodologies to support organizations and young people in this rapid development process. Inspired by the UBUNTU philosophy and the Integral Model, the Young Talents programs are based, in general, on the following cornerstones:
Reflection of Purpose and Mapping of Professional Paths: a process of collective learning that allows young people to reflect on their talents and areas of interest. They are encouraged to view and design potential career paths that match their personal interests and the purpose of the organization as a whole. It’s a learning process that makes young people mature individually and also in their most varied relationships.
Development of Competencies for Action: based on the PURPOSE Model of SELFtrepreneurship, young people are encouraged to reflect on and practice several skills, which will be fundamental in their day-to-day roles and also in the implementation of projects.
Individual Coaching: aiming at giving even more focus to development and speeding up the learning process, I also offer individual meetings to support young people in their particular issues. And counting on my networking, I have the support of a group of coaches with the most varied training and different professional backgrounds. That’s why I select the ideal coaches for each young person’s challenges.
Projects: I consider that learning is effectively achieved in practice, by doing it! That’s why I strongly support the idea of implementing projects during the youth program.
Whether with organizations that already have this structured process or with those in a phase prior to it, experience shows that, naturally, throughout the SELFtrepreneurship process, some projects arise and need support and technical and behavioral development to be carried out with maximum efficiency.
Development of Managers: observing the entire process of youth development, I conduct multiple workshops with managers to support them in their roles and in the challenges of dealing with young people in their early career. The programs include workshops to raise awareness of skills, exchange of experiences among managers, and development of skills of these professionals.
SPEAKER in Conferences
Considering this context, since 2009 I have held countless conferences and/or dynamic activities to work on specific topics or skills. In fact, I have already spoken in 3 different TEDx in Brazil. And, because I am part of a network, connected with several professionals in the Ubuntu Network ecosystem of SELFtrepreneurship, it is possible to develop short, specific but high-impact interventions.
What competencies or topics are addressed? Like everything I do, the intervention is designed according to the reality and the needs of the organization. From the initial interview with the applicant area, the content and format are defined. The topics usually revolve around the PURPOSE Model for the development of SELFtrepreneurship or even competencies related to it.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Contact me and arrange a meeting (face to face or virtually) for us to discuss specifically the need for development of your team and explore, together, how I can support your business process.
