Evidence from the field

Examples of how the CCS has been used by different facilitators to do the job they were brought in to do.

EXAMPLE

Create company values

Facilitator's brief:
Develop company values that are current and relevant. A selection of employees from different departments in the organisation brought together for 1 day to formulate the company values.

Client's response:
"This session absolutely nailed it. We went on a journey and came out the other side with fresh values that we 'own' and will commit to."

EXAMPLE

Team vision and strategy

Facilitator's brief:
A customer service team, 2 day retreat. Half the team knew each other already, half were relatively new. The challenge was to connect and plan for the busy year ahead.

Client's response:
"Stunning! The environment has settled. Here we are at our busiest time of year ... and this team is humming. They are more open and trust each other."

EXAMPLE

Merge two teams

Facilitator's brief:
Merging two teams after a restructure. 23 participants, finance industry.

Client's response:
"One of the best team building sessions ever! It has helped us to pinpoint our strengths and weaknesses and provoked a high level of involvement – especially from the quieter members of the teams."

Expert connection every time

"I have told you more in these 5 cards and these 5 minutes, than I have shared with friends I have known for years!"

Genuine engagement

"We wouldn't even think about running a program without the CCS. It just feels flat without it!"

Shared understanding

"Most importantly the CCS enables you to achieve an outcome of shared understanding more quickly than traditional dialogue."

Genuine engagement

"The level of disclosure and sharing we are able to get with the CCS cards in the first 90 minutes of our program used to take a day and half!"
