Develop High Performing Teams

Developing a High Performing Team Training/Workshop

Organizations that get their best and brightest working together tackling challenges and seizing opportunities have an amazing competitive advantage.  But the truth is, high performing teams are RARE in workplaces. Why?  Most teams lack the understanding, tools and methods to enable diverse people to work together collaboratively and creatively.  This training gives your team the tools they need to a) identify what’s broken and b) work towards evolving into a high performance team.

If you’re like most senior leaders, the #1 concern keeping you up at night is how to develop a high performing team.  Teams face many challenges such as lack of trust, inability to work through conflict, personal agendas and lack of accountability or commitment. Imagine what your team will accomplish when you get all your team members rowing in the same direction!

Training Outcomes from the Developing a High Performing Team Training/Workshop:

  • Identify areas the team needs to work on; left unaddressed “dysfunctional” teams equate to time and $ wasted
  • Increase trust and understanding of each other; without trust, all the great benefits you should be getting from teams (synergy, creativity, better decisions, increase problem solving) won’t happen
  • Understand normal team development stages so you and your team realize whatever stage you are in is “normal” and how to move on.
  • Learn the characteristics of high performing work teams; you can’t hit what you don’t aim for!
  • Learn new tools and ways to increase team performance including feedback, SMART goals, debriefs.  These are the tools to take your team from frustration or mediocre to best in class.
  • Team members will receive valuable feedback from each other learning what behaviors individuals do that help or hinder the team.  This gets the elephants in the room out on the table and can be a huge wake up call for those who are in denial.  Having everyone participate also creates safety to voice one’s truth to other team members.
  • Identify new team norms and a collective team goal to increase performance.  To increase accountability team members need to hold each other responsible for productive team behaviors, having clear team standards and goals to benchmark against allows this to happen.

Team members will leave this training understanding what their greatest behavioral strengths and weaknesses are to the team effort. Thus, team members will understand what behaviors they need to change for the good of the team and will have the support of their fellow team members in making the behavioral changes.
