We believe the best way to increase Team effectiveness is by engaging directly with a Team. Providing a Team with a clear framework for thoughtful self-evaluation and a shared language to describe common experiences starts a rich dialogue. By keeping the discussion focused and ensuring an inclusive process, Team members are equipped to drive improvements that matter and last.
WHY FOCUS ON TEAMS?
The research is clear: Team-based work has increased by 50% over the last two decades, but the effectiveness of team-based work has not. Our research indicates that even though people are often on multiple teams, they rate only 20% of those teams as effective and report feeling dismally under-supported in efforts to make teams operate better. The truth is...
Leaders don't fix teams.
Teams Fix Teams.
MANY LEADERS STRUGGLE WITH...
start with empathy - frustrated, don't know how to fix the team
leaders are often frustrated that they won't talk to each other, but bring them the problems. dont solve issues within themselves
I should be able to have a high-performing team, but no one taught me how
I tried to train my team / I tried individual coaching but it didn't get me where I needed to get to
I know the stakes are high (there's a lot at play if I can't figure out how to help this team improve it's effectiveness), but I don't know how to
FEAR / ASPIRE / SPEAK TO EXPERIENCE or HEART THAT OTHERS DONT SPEAK TO
Investing team/attention in the team - you want change that sticks, you don't want to have to fix it twice
develop your people - you want to help your team become better team members and leaders themselves
