  1. 1. Introduction of Unicorn
  2. 2. Table of Content • Mission Statement • The 4 Elements of Unicorn • Core Activities • Unicorn DNA • Track Record • Our Team
  3. 3. Mission Statement UNICORN GROUP, YOUR LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT PARTNER WE ENABLE YOU TO… • ... bridge the knowing-doing gap. “Understanding something" is one thing ... Actually "behaving accordingly" is another ! • ... increase the effectiveness of individuals, teams and organisations. “Effectiveness is obtaining your desired results, not once, but again and again and again…” - Stephen R. Covey
  4. 4. The 4 Elements of Unicorn
  5. 5. Core Activities Transformation: We transform your organisational culture, through our Cascading Methodology. We will get to the heart of the business and resolve it from the inside out leaving your organisation stronger, fitter and culturally transformed. E.g. Strategy Implementation, New Ways of Working, Installing Feedback Culture, … Leadership Pipeline: We help our clients to understand (1) what kind of leadership they need to deliver on their strategy for the future and (2) the (potential) leadership they have today. But moreover, we train the leaders to close the detected gap - and to keep it closed. E.g. High Potential Development Tracks, Leadership Seminars, New Hire Training Weeks, … Sr. Team Journey: We offer team journeys focused on developing the effectiveness of sr. teams and their leaders, often in high change/tension situations (e.g. new CEO, post merger, large change, new int.teams, teams in crisis …). E.g. Partner Camps, Strategy Development, Classical Team Training (team building, increasing team effectiveness…), Ambition Setting, … Research & Development | Project Management | Communication Strategy
  6. 6. Unicorn DNA
  7. 7. Unicorn DNA | No-nonsense Theory The gap between theory and practice is usually not as wide in theory as it is in practice. PRINCIPLE: Unicorn believes in the effectiveness of ‘no-nonsense theory’: simple concepts, to the point and powerful, which can impact the behaviour of the participants. We can rely on a backpack filled with useful models, such as the Unicorn 5F Model developed based on key ideas from scientific research and inspirational literature such as Covey, Collins, Ram Charan, Rens van Loon,… During preparation, we will select together with you the framework which offers the best fit with the objectives, company culture, concepts already embedded in the organisation, current use of language,… IMPLEMENTATION: Each building block during the seminar starts with a short & fresh presentation from the selected theoretical framework. Of course, we can also send pre-reading documents a few weeks before the start of the seminar, to allow participants to read & prepare. This way, we can limit the theoretical time investment during the seminar and focus optimally on concrete learning moments.
  8. 8. Unicorn DNA | Constructive Confrontation Life starts at the end of your comfort zone. PRINCIPLE: No learning without constructive confrontation! High performing individuals, teams and organisations do not stay safely within their zone of comfort, but actively seek confrontation. IMPLEMENTATION: After the theoretical presentation, the participants are divided into sub teams (max. 5 participants per coach) and are offered a challenging strategic outdoor workshop. Important note – this is not a survival exercise! During the workshop, nature does play a crucial role, not at all as a physical challenge, but offering a safe learning environment and opportunity to learn.
  9. 9. Unicorn DNA | Feedback The higher you get in an organization, the less likely people are to give you candid feedback. Feedback is your life-support system! PRINCIPLE: At the heart of Unicorn is professional & in-depth feedback. Experience tells us that open & honest feedback, with a clear translation towards daily practice, is essential to learn, develop & deliver sustainable results. IMPLEMENTATION: After each outdoor workshop comes the most important part of the seminar: the feedback session (integration of individual / peer / team coaching). All insights & experiences are discussed in the small sub teams together with the Unicorn coach. The participants give and receive open & constructive feedback. Unicorn holds up a mirror to confront them with their (in)effective habits, thinking patterns, competencies,… on individual, team and organisational level.
  10. 10. Unicorn DNA | Psychological Safety It takes both guts and a good parachute to jump out of an airplane. PRINCIPLE: An optimal learning process faces participants with a high-adrenaline situation and challenges them to leave their zone of comfort, while continuously guaranteeing psychological safety. IMPLEMENTATION: During the seminar, the loop of theory / workshop / feedback is repeated, offering the participants the chance to incorporate the feedback & insights and experiment with new behaviour during the next workshop… and receiving new feedback. Participants will be guided throughout this journey by a coach, pushing people out of their comfort zones and holding up a mirror to them, but always ensuring that all of this happens in a constructive way. This makes the seminar a safe learning environment & practice field.
  11. 11. Unicorn DNA | Mindset Picture your brain forming new connections as you meet the challenge and learn. PRINCIPLE: To achieve sustainable results, you need to push out the boundaries of your own behaviour, skills & competencies and dare to question the effectiveness of your mindset. IMPLEMENTATION: During the feedback session, the Unicorn coach will challenge & encourage the participants to discover which habits & behaviours drive their mindset, and also question the effectiveness of that mindset. This way, the coach facilitates a ‘mindset-shift’, enabling the participants to perceive reality in a new and more effective manner.
  12. 12. Unicorn DNA | Transfer of Learning The world does not pay for what a person knows, it pays for what a person does with what he knows. PRINCIPLE: We do not believe in ‘one-shot’ events. After the seminar, we need to set in motion a strict follow-up process to ensure the implementation of learning and action points and increase the effectiveness of the training track. IMPLEMENTATION: At the end of the seminar, we always include time to translate all learning points into a concrete action plan (individual / team level). We are also happy to share ideas and tools for follow-up initiatives, organised by the participants themselves, HR or supported by Unicorn.
