Are you looking for ways to nurture team innovation and problem-solving, while building strategic leadership competencies?
A Courageous Cultures “Fishbowl” competition is a fast and fun way to reinforce your strategic initiatives. And, tap into the best ideas of every team member. Think “Shark Tank”, only friendlier. Before the session, we’ll work with your leadership team to identify three or four strategic business priorities for which you could use some great ideas. We will start by giving your team a foundation of our strategic leadership and team innovation research, processes, and tools. Next, your employees will work in a friendly team competition to identify and vet a great idea. Then, your teams will pitch their ideas to friendly senior leadership “judges” in rounds, who will offer feedback and select the best ideas to move forward.
Note: All ideas are captured for future consideration. So everyone’s a winner.
During the Fishbowl Your Team Will
- Learn Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving skills they can easily apply with their teams.
- Practice pitching their ideas for greater influence and impact.
- Contribute ideas to strategically improve the business right away.
