We design and facilitate Team Events; we can help your team to solve a problem, be creative or develop a strategy. We can also assist you and your team in improving awareness of why individuals in teams operate as they do and how different roles are needed in the creation of an effective team. Red Door's experienced facilitators can also support your event with a range of psychometric instruments including KAI and Myers Briggs as well as Belbins to help bring further clarity and insight into team behaviour.
It all starts with a phone call to discuss your goals and challenges and how we can help get you there.
Despite arriving to a meeting with lots of energy and enthusiasm we have all had the experience of sitting in unproductive meetings with disappointing outcomes. We can guide you through the steps needed to resolve this unsuccessful deadlock. We agree a plan with you, work out which points are already agreed upon and which are the cause of conflict, then devise a strategy to help you achieve your outcome.
A skilled external facilitator will help the team to clarify what is important, identify where there is energy for change and encourage decisions to be made collaboratively. We also facilitate the writing of Team and Customers Service Charters, helping to plot the course and expectations of staff and customers:
"A huge thank you to Red Door (Tracy and Linda) for facilitating our Business Partner day and helping us to reach conclusion on our shared Customer Charter. The day was great fun but with some good group work facilitation and ideas generated. Definitely took the pressure off myself and my team."
Thanks Linda and Tracy
Head of Terminal and Customer Operations
"Linda and Tracy delivered a customer skills session at the University of Exeter which enabled employees to share best practice and learn from their peers. The interactive customer skills session encouraged open discussions among employees that were carefully structured and resulted in tangible outcomes which we have developed further after the event. Staff commented that they found the sessions “brilliant – really engaging” and “that it had generated lots of good ideas to take away”.

Red Door assisted us during our recent Away Day which involved the whole Practice including GPs. Linda was very professional and an expert Facilitator. She spent time with our Practice Team before the event and worked hard to relate to our issues and understand our challenges.

Comments following a Team Day for a large Doctor's Practice in Bristol.
The outcomes (of the day) far exceeded expectations.
It has given us the building blocks and the change of attitude I was looking for to now start to develop a raft of other initiatives.
None of this would have happened without...
NHS Practice Manager
In 2017 the University of Bristol started moving office-based staff to agile working. This involved managing teams by outcomes and we commissioned Red Door to deliver training to our managers on this. We have had very positive feedback from delegates, who reported that the training helped them plan for this...
