Unchanging, stable teams don’t exist any more. Teams these days evolve, grow, merge, divide, disappear. Teams that can respond to changing environments, can be flexible and adapt, can integrate new members and release departing ones, can start-up and wrap-up: these are the teams that will meet the demands of the complex world in which they operate.
Teams are complex systems with a shared purpose but ‘multiple realities’- each team member viewing events from their individual perspective. Our team development programmes help integrate these multiple realities into a high performance team with strong creative relationships and a unique identity which generates results far beyond the sum of individual efforts.
We enable all kinds of teams to optimise their performance. Executive teams translate vision into action. Functional teams boost productivity. Restructured teams rapidly regenerate. Project teams find a powerful shared identity and meet tight deadlines. Matrix teams optimise the full range of member experience and minimise territoriality. Merger teams build on best corporate practice and create a new culture. Virtual teams minimise communication obstacles and build rewarding relationships in a virtual environment.
Here are some of the issues and opportunities we address:
- How to transition a group of individuals to become a high performing team
- How to successfully build a cohesive virtual team
- How to develop an underperforming team
- How to build relationships and communication in teams
