High Performance Teams
Teams are formed around the competencies and skills of its members. There is a strong reality that some skilled teams work better than other skilled teams. There is also the reality that some teams that are not as skilled as others can perform better simply because of the way members talk to each other, listen to each other, collaborate, and share information.
Using a combination of Psychology, Neuroscience, and over two decades of business experience, we know how to shape and strengthen your team to become high performance.
Go from high potential to high performance.
When all is said and done, there are two powerful characteristics of high performance teams.
1. They possess high levels of energy
2. Members are engaged with each other and with the team's purpose
Teams are comprised of two types of people: talent that shouts, and talent that whispers.
Talent that shouts are those who talk, engage and share great ideas with confidence. They generally find it easy to approach team meetings with high energy and engagement (although listening may sometimes be a challenge). Talent that whispers, however, are those who have great ideas and insight, but who don't feel easily able to say their piece in free-for-all team meetings.
One of the key strategies for High Performance Teams is to unlock the contributions of talent that whispers whilst also recognising and maintaining the contributions of talent that shouts in ways that are careful not to drown out quieter voices.
High performance teams unlock their inherent talent regardless of how confident or socially bold their members are.
Although we have a wealth of experience of working with teams, we know that your team is unlike any other and a one-size-fits-all approach to enhancing your team is likely to be highly ineffective. To successfully take your team from being high potential to high performance, we need to understand the challenges and strengths that are specific to your team and to your people.
Our approach to team diagnosis involves a thorough assessment of individual team members (through interviews and assessments) as well as a detailed examination of how members experience and interact with one other. From here, we are able to apply our industry knowledge in ways that are appropriate to your needs.
Learning from and building on your team diagnosis, we lead your team through a series of processes that align, focus and connect the team. This follows a three-part team development process according to What, So What, and Now What.
THREE-PART TEAM PROCESS:
Improve your team, improve your people.
At the end of the High Performance Team process, each member of the team is given four individual feedback activation sessions.
These sessions are designed to help team members digest what they've heard and learnt about themselves and the role they play in a team, and to support them to apply what they have learnt.
