LEADERSHIP TEAM-BONDING WORKSHOP
Dear Shangri-La Leaders,
“Teamwork begins by building trust. And the only way to do that is to overcome our need for invulnerability.” – Patrick Lencioni
Warm greetings from SLIM Dubai.
Congratulations on being selected to attend the upcoming session of the Leadership Team-Bonding Workshop in your hotel.
During the 2 Days workshop, we will be focusing on:
• Identifying your natural strengths and how they effect your leadership persona. • Recognising behavioural patterns demonstrated by functional versus dysfunctional teams. • Reflecting on the key capabilities that are demonstrated by successful teams around collaboration and synergy. • Utilising ethnographic theory to identify guests’ attitudes towards travel and service and the role of teams in the facilitation of these expectations. • Overviewing the role of communication in the formation of teams’ dynamics. In preparation for the workshop, please take some time to review and complete the pre-work activities contained in this document. Other logistical requirements are also described in this document for your consideration. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you, and looking forward to 2 days of collective success!

PREWORK ACTIVITY NO. 1:
STRENGTHS’ FINDER ASSESSMENT
American Psychologist Donald CLIFTON introduced the concept of Strengths Psychology which inspired a whole new approach to the study of human performance; today called: Positive Psychology.
Clifton developed the StrengthsFinder Assessment under the notion:
INTRODUCTION TO STRENGTHS’ FINDER BY GALLUP
“ What will happen when we think about what is right with people rather than fixating on what is wrong with them? (Clifton, 1924 – 2003).
