Developing High Performance Teams – Tangible demonstrations of the culture you want
We work with existing and new team leaders and teams to develop clear and challenging goals, work plans that hold people accountable and efficient and effective follow up processes. The disciplines we impart strengthen alignment and cohesion, and increase the likelihood of success. Often we use DiSC profiles to help team members better understand each others’ communication and collaboration styles. We facilitate deeper conversations so they learn new ways to listen and learn together. We then help the team select and tackle a stretch "breakthrough project" that results in both rapid learning and measurable improvements in the organization.
