Tools of the trade

How do you ensure a growing, dispersed team are engaged with your vision and values? It’s a challenge facing organisations in every sector – and one The Hyde Group, one of the UK’s largest housing associations, asked us to help them solve.

We devised a toolbox for managers, full of genuinely intriguing exercises, that are designed to bring the values and vision to life. Some can be completed in just fifteen minutes, others take up to an hour. All the materials are provided: managers can simply open the box and start.

This interactive approach has already made a difference – according to feedback from both managers and their teams. The use of game play and exercises makes the values more real – and helps people understand how they can apply them in their own roles.
