Building a Winning Team

For Rising Tide, I developed and conducted two one-day workshops in the context of their annual Offsite meetings with 25-45 staff members. The goals included raising personal responsibility, substantially improving morale, and initiating a roadmap for the ongoing development towards a winning team culture. The participants left the workshops with high levels of inspiration and a set of tools and methods to change their attitude and routines sustainably.

Volkmar led our organization through a highly energized and well organized day, using proven tools Winning Teams use every single day to keep their focus and to change their mindset to winning attitudes. We had fun as a team and we have gone on to implement new programs that reinforce successful attitudes at Rising Tide.

For our past Offsite in March, we were looking for a strong partner to facillitate the topic “Scaling up Excellence” to engage our diverse group of top talent. Rising Tide is conducting strategic Offsites with our talent base on an bi-annual basis. We were looking to engage a strong partner to help us in offering our demanding talent base an innovative learning opportunity. At the same time, we were seeking to create organizational momentum and increase our own capabilities by making the transition from learning (input-basis) to performance (output-basis) swiftly.The partnership with Volkmar Völtzke did exceed our expectations. He is sharp and innovative in his approach while balancing and adapting to the unique cutomer environment. Volkmar’s partnership with us delivered a great impact on our culture and mindset, which we were able to transform by continous focus in the meanwhile thanks to the great partnership with Volkmar.
