Supporting Your Team
How do you ensure that your team is working as effectively as possible?
Some teams are effective, yet others lack the functionality required for efficient teamwork.
"It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage both because it is so powerful and so rare".
Pat Lencioni, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team
Effective teamwork is much more than assembling individuals with the requisite skills - we recognise that - yet, it is easy to underestimate the importance of relationships as a prerequisite for maximising teamwork potential.
But this is more than having the ability to 'talk' to each other.
Diverse experiences and diverse personalities will likely come together to form your team. Each with a preferred style of work which can compliment or conflict with other team members.
Once people are understood, you recognise and can adapt to their preferred style of communication.
You need to understand an individual's style of communication if you are to genuinely understand them.
Communication that can manage conflict ensuring that everyone is understood.
Workshops are available across a range of topics which include:

I work with Everything DiSC to guide people, helping them to understand, firstly themselves, and then others, better. Once you understand how an individual naturally approaches situations, you have the basis for improved communication, with greater individual and team effectiveness.
Build better teams & relationships
Use improved communication to harness abilities within the team to deliver the improvement & accountability you need.
Bespoke to your requirements, create sessions around a common goal to create meaningful change & improvement.
Team support is about COHESION. It focuses upon an agenda for improvement that can have both professional and personal elements. The group arrangement will help participants to connect with the aims and values of the team and to determine improvement that empowers, motivates and guides everyone within the process.
Vision and Mission statements, strategic planning and departmental change are all driven by a determination to improve - improvements that should be determined efficiently and enable effective, sustainable change.
This process needs every member of your team to be accepting of the challenge and prepared to push the boundaries. Better outcomes, requires fresh perspectives, cooperation, trust, motivation and a willingness to adapt and change.
It will help your team to gain clarity through key messages and approaches that every team member can embrace. Outcomes are team focussed and the approach is designed to ensure that everyone accepts responsibility for their role in the process.
I recognise that the team is best placed to determine and drive its development. What you seek is someone that can structure and support this process, enabling you to increase your levels of effectiveness, productivity & creativity.
