Team Development

…creating high performing, successful teams

Teams and effective teamwork are important for an organisation’s success. Increasingly, work is being delivered in organisations through teams:  functional teams, cross-functional teams, short-term project teams, self managing teams, management teams and virtual teams.

International research by Towers Watson, Gostick and Elton has shown that while teams of fully engaged staff have double the productivity of disengaged teams in terms of operating margin, the highest performing teams achieve three times the output.

The benefits for an organisation are huge if all teams operate at this level. Staff within these teams would not only be performing consistently at peak, they would also be enjoying the environment they are in, the work they do, and the organisation and leaders they work with.

Teams that consistently achieve the levels of synergy required to operate at peak, have members that are led to feel fully engaged, enabled and energised.

Other international research consistently shows the single biggest impact on a team’s performance, is the climate and morale generated within the team by the leadership styles and behaviours of the team leader, and the culture of belief and commitment that results. This is true of teams at all levels – from First Level Teams to Executive Leadership Teams.

Our work with teams and team leaders is aimed at lifting teams to these truly high performing levels, and to sustain this performance in a healthy manner. We work with teams at all levels, from Executive Leadership Teams to First Level Teams.
