Are you a collective of individuals or are you a team?
How do you develop and sustain high performance for teams in your organization?
We can all recall an experience when we’ve been part of an amazing team. There are moments of magic and flow and everyone seems to be firing on all cylinders together. These exceptional team experiences are what we strive for on each new team.
Much research has been done on what makes teams successful and high performing. Most recently Google gathered data on what the key contributors to successful teams were. In a nutshell, this is what they found.:
The five key dynamics for success in teams:
- Psychological safety: Can we take risks on this team without feeling insecure or embarrassed?
- Dependability: Can we count on each other to do high quality work on time?
- Structure & clarity: Are goals, roles, and execution plans on our team clear?
- Meaning of work: Are we working on something that is personally important for each of us?
- Impact of work: Do we fundamentally believe that the work we’re doing matters?
When we work with your team we assess where you are as a team along a continuum of success. And we focus on the skills, tools, and experiences you need to develop high performance qualities in your team.
We develop team off sites that use creative techniques to engage everyone in a holistic way.
Grounded in team development theory we offer practical tools and applications to develop trust, more skillful communication, conflict management, and alignment on vision, values and goals.
To learn more about introducing a unique and highly engaging approach in your next off site, check out my offerings under Leadership Embodiment.
