You've noticed organization charts are getting flatter, global and more matrixed. You’re feeling the pressure on already reduced headcounts. You sense the need for greater cross-functional team collaboration and you know teams drive results in most organizations now more than ever. Yet, you’ve seen when members of a team don't work well together, especially under pressure, performance and productivity can suffer.
Some of your teams are challenged by:
- a lack of purpose and focus
- people pulling in different directions
- time wasting meetings
- insufficient follow through
- a lack of open and honest communication
- fear of conflict
- and, unhealthy relationships
It’s time to address this dysfunction.
"I honestly believe that in this day and age of informational ubiquity and nanosecond change, teamwork remains the one sustainable competitive advantage that has been largely untapped". -Patrick Lencioni
Team Coaching can help take your team to the next level of performance.
Team Coaching helps people understand how to work better with each other. It's an effective method for showing teams how to reduce conflict and improve their working relationships. With less energy devoted to interpersonal challenges, the team can focus on its real work, and achieve its objectives.
The goal is to create a learning environment for the team to work more efficiently and effectively together, and to professionalize themselves as individuals and as a team in relation to leadership, managerial and structural issues. Team Coaching will develop members’ interpersonal skills, define members’ roles and expectations, deal with conflict and interpersonal frictions, and help a team achieve a level of “maturity” that lessens the team’s dependence on its leader.
The focus is on the development of the Team...
How it performs tasks, how members relate and behave with each other and how they learn together as a team. The way people act with their teammates and the way they communicate with one another are important drivers of effective team performance. After all, you can put a lot of high-performing individuals on a team and still have performance problems.
