Leading and managing remote teams in a pandemic with facilitated conversations
Cultures are made of relationships and connections, but they are defined by our actions and behaviors especially amid challenges and adversity. To help support your culture, we've partnered with the experts at CampbellBarr to create three new Leader-Led Discussion toolkits.
These conversational ethics and compliance themed experiences are intentionally written and designed for virtual meetings with your teams.
Drawing from over 10 years of experience as a leading consultancy helping to facilitate purposeful E&C conversations, the CampbellBarr team has written more than 80 of these toolkits and created a series of new ones specifically to help you navigate the challenges of 2020 with empathy, resilience and care.
Each kit focuses on the heightened pressure we're experiencing. They are designed to bring your teams a little closer together despite our physical distance while we're working remotely and under stress during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
SAI Global's E&C team is proud to offer three curated choices from their collection. Each kit requires 10 to 15 minutes of preparation to enable a meaningful 20-minute team discussion, so pick one for free, try it in your next meeting, and let us know how it goes.
Toolkit: Van Halen and M&Ms
In the 1980s, the rock band Van Halen was at the height of their fame. Like many bands, they provided a list of extensive demands (riders) that concert promoters had to comply with – including bowls of M&Ms in their dressing rooms with all the brown ones removed.
The M&M request may seem like another story of Rock and Roll excess. However, it was in fact a vital element of the band's approach to managing safety at their events.
This short story illustrates how creative thinking and planning can help when managing safety and other key risks. It is also a light-hearted reminder that things are not always as they seem.

CampbellBarr has spent the past decade facilitating candid team reflections and conversations, help enhance the working cultures of leading Dow Jones, FTSE 100, and CAC40 companies.
The company has worked with and supported companies such as BP after their Gulf of Mexico disaster, GSK after challenges in China, and Serco following their corporate renewal program imposed by the UK government, plus many others.
Over this time, CampbellBarr has facilitated thousands of discussions. They've helped teams strengthen their self-awareness of the actions and habits that enhance or inhibit culture, build their judgment and abilities around team decision-making, and galvanize their commitment to staying focused on these efforts. Today, working with companies to promote conversations that enhance performance and compliance cultures remains the mainstay of what we love and do. In our experience, we've recognized that sustainable change and culture growth comes from small discussions that leaders and managers have with their teams when no-one else is watching.
