Why choose us to bring you these benefits?

Reason #1 Ė Our Team Development Diagnoses and Interventions are Data-Driven and Results-Oriented. Our team development assignments typically originate with a client request for team development assistance and the drafting of an agreement between us and the client. This agreement details the respective roles we and they will play in gathering and analyzing relevant diagnostic data and developing conclusions and recommendations; determining jointly whether, when and how team development intervention(s) should be designed and delivered; and (when there is joint agreement) proceeding with the implementation of one or more team development intervention(s) focused on real organizational issues and specific operating results required of the team.

Reason #2 Ė We Help Your Team Leaders Produce Better Results. Our team development process includes intense, hands-on teamwork on real organizational issues and required operational results that provide valuable skill-building opportunities for your team leaders. As a consequence, they learn how to leverage team strengths and manage team morale and productivity for required results.

Reason #3 Ė Our Team Development Interventions Address All the Drivers of Your Teamís Operating Results. We use a comprehensive model of team functioning to ensure that our team development interventions address all the factors that influence team performance and results:

    Selecting and orienting team members

    Defining and clarifying team member roles

    Setting the teamís mission, vision, goals and action plans

    Getting motivated for team tasks and executing them

    Allocating and managing team membersí time and talents

    Surfacing team membersí values, beliefs, interests and skills

    Clarifying team membersí expectations and preferences

    Solving problems and making and implementing decisions

    Managing differences and resolving disputes and disagreements

    Managing boundaries between the team and the larger organization

    Communicating interpersonally and with the teamís stakeholders

    Identifying and addressing the teamís self-improvement opportunities

Reason #4 Ė Your Team Members Learn How Their Actions Affect the Teamís Operating Results. Our interventions are designed to help individual members identify and discuss behavioral issues limiting the teamís operating results so that they can decide what changes are needed in their own or others behavior and what to do about making needed changes.

Reason #5 Ė Your Teams Learn How to Engage in Regular and Effective Self Improvement. This enables them to become self assessing and self renewing by periodically identifying any team inhibitors to results-focused teamwork and then working to overcome or minimize them.
