Best Strategies for Team Performance
What questions do you have about getting the most from your team? Do you wonder about how to keep everyone aligned and focused? Do you think about the best approaches to leading a team of high performing individuals? Chances are, we’ve been thinking about your question too. And, chances are, we have a solution for you. If we don’t, we’ll help you find someone who does.
We have a passion for helping organizations and teams achieve their business goals. We have researched teams. We have spoken with leaders of teams, with team members, with suppliers and with clients of teams. They told us that team success rests on four pillars:
- Having a clear common purpose and formal ways to track their progress
- Team leaders who have precise approaches to making their team great
- Team tools, processes and approaches that are fine-tuned for performance
- A team culture that encourages and reinforces performance
We have built a comprehensive set of tools and approaches around these four pillars.
Our work with teams is not ‘team building’ – we don’t climb rock walls or conduct trust falls. We take teams and help them learn by doing work that is important to them – clarifying performance goals, planning, focusing and holding themselves accountable.
We customize our approach your team. Team members use our Team 360 Assessment to agree on what the team needs to do to boost its performance. They then plan the work and execute it in a disciplined manner. They assess and report on progress on their plans.
We’ve worked with companies in the oil and gas industry, mining, financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing, high tech, healthcare, education, government, and professional services.
