Some suggestions for possible training sessions based on our library of introductory workshops.
The current combined results have highlighted these three areas as those most in need of attention. While the specific next actions taken by the team should arise from a shared review, here are some of our suggestions for the kind of training that can often be of benefit.
Improvement area 1:
The tools, resources and support needed to do the work that needs to be done.
Be able to identify and communicate what you need
Possible workshop: Recognising needs
Create working conditions that support mental and physical health
Possible workshop: Healthy working practices
Understand how to create your own digital tools
Possible workshop: Fundamental digital practices
Get to grips with the “data driven” headspace
Possible workshop: How to think in data
Improvement area 2:
The team’s ability to reach a goal together. Breaking work into smaller parts that can be effectively distributed according to ability - and then the ability to put all the pieces back together again and finish the job.
Avoid getting stuck waiting for agreement and approval.
