Maximizing Team Productivity: The Power of Liftoff

Transform your team's performance by starting right with the Liftoff Program. Bring cohesion to your team from day one and create a collaborative culture grounded in high-performance and value-based principles.

Gain a competitive edge by becoming a subject matter expert in Liftoff Program facilitation. Build a customized guide for future Liftoffs in your organization, and share your experiences with other participants.

The Benefits of Liftoff for Organizations

The Liftoff process is critical because it helps a team establish a shared alignment on the goals; working toward a common vision. This ensures that everyone is on the same page from the start and sets a strong foundation for success.

  • New Mindset: Shift your organization's perspective away from a slide-deck, one-hour kickoffs to a more cohesive, value-based Liftoff.
  • Immediate Impact: Liftoff helps teams maximize productivity and cohesiveness from day one, improving overall team efficiency.
  • Organizational Alignment - Define purpose, alignment, and context while promoting the value in team collaboration through Liftoffs.
  • Organizational Growth: Promote organizational success with purposeful, value-based strategies and improvements in team culture resulting from using Liftoffs.
  • Facilitation and Coordination: While learning how to facilitate Liftoff, participants create their own step-by-step guide and customizable white board template.

Who Should Attend the Program?

Team leads, project/program managers, product managers, coaches who want to change the dynamic of how programs, products, and services are jump-started so they can build cohesion from Day 1.

OR
