There is something magical about the performance of
effective teams–the way the members come together, align their talents and put aside their differences. Then, almost flawlessly, they execute to achieve a goal.
What so few leaders realize is that the ingredients for success are largely the same no matter the type of team.
Pick the right people with the right balance of interdependence amount them
Ensure they share enthusiasm for the objective
Give them well-defined parameters for success
Sadly, but also standing without debate, is the premise that although leaders desperately need effective, game-changing teams, few have been able to consistently develop cohesion among them.
Cohesive, Aggressive, and Targeted Teams
We identify the scope of the issues at hand and check the compatibility of the tasks to be solved with the team's talents available.
Individuals spend one to two hours in a structured interview with a consulting psychologist to understand current challenges and possible solutions for team cohesion and performance.
Our findings are compiled into a thematic report, where the individual stories unfold. As the linchpin for our process, the verbatim and unattributed responses are compiled highlighting different perspectives of the team.
Our consultants methodically comb through the Report together with the team to build consensus around the most important challenges and develop the outlines for solutions.
A collection of individuals with the desire to achieve a goal that they cannot achieve singly
Candor, respect, and trust developed while wrestling with intellectual conflicts to generate the best solutions
A team that is infatuated with reaching the goals set out
Clarity and exactness of the objectives and the definition of a "win" or "loss"
Corralled thinking such that few blind alleys are pursued
