Planning Advising Growing

Team work remains the one sustainable advantage that has largely been untapped

Are you looking to take your team or Board on to the next level?

Perhaps you want to move them from underperforming to cohesive or from cohesive to high performing.

Using an online team assessment, we can help you to quickly identify your challenges and opportunities and take the heat away from you, as the individuals assess the team performance, rather than individual performances.

So, ask yourself:

Do your team members conceal their weaknesses and mistakes from one another?

Perhaps they hesitate to ask for help or fail to provide constructive feedback to colleagues?

Have your meetings lost their pizzazz?

Is the elephant in the room conveniently ignored and allowed to grow?

Maybe the team revisits discussions and decisions over and over again?

Or worse still they regularly miss deadlines and key deliverables?

By answering yes to any of the above, you could be working with a underperforming team that is not maximising its opportunities or delivering the results your business deserves.

Most organisations where we live and work are marked by underperforming, often dysfunctional teams.

The word teamwork has become overused and lost its purpose because office politics, personal objectives and poor operational performance get in the way of delivering the corporate goals.

The reality is, we over complicated teamwork, because as human beings we are messy, fallible creatures, and when you put enough of us in a room and ask us to work together, problems arise.

To overcome these problems, teams and their leaders must be willing to invest significant time, energy and discipline to achieve great results.

A functional team will consistently make higher quality decisions and accomplish more in less time, with less distraction, and frustration. They also avoid wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in.

That's where we can assist you and your team by:-

  • Carrying out a online team assessment - to provide a sense of its strengths and areas for improvement, not only providing you with quantitative data driven feedback, but also it provides qualitative information to start proactive conversations amongst the team.

  • Helping overcome concerns of showing their weaknesses, mistakes, fears and real behaviours, so they can be completely open with each other.

  • Encouraging passionate dialogue around the key issues and decisions that are critical to the success of the organisation.

  • Supporting genuine buy-in to all important decisions.

  • Promoting high standards of performance that enable the team to hold each other accountable, without them having to come to you to resolve the issues.

  • Developing a focus on team goals ahead of personal objectives and breaking down silos.

And say goodbye to boring, unproductive meetings that fail to deliver results.
