If you want to be marginally better, be competitive. If you want to be exponentially better, be co-operative. (Unknown author)
Shared responsibility … the key to any successful team. In a team, your shared task is to deliver on the organisation’s mission and results. In a team where people enjoy working together and results are good, there is trust and optimum communication. This is conducive to enabling each team member individually as well as the team as a whole to develop to reach a higher performance level.
We shed light on how the team functions in 6 layers. This gives you a due understanding of (subconscious) patterns and processes, allowing for these to be turned into efficient action, passion and fun. These layers are:
- Joint task (targets and results)
- We (team/group)
- Team dynamic (interaction and patterns)
- The Story
It may a be good idea to have your (management) team coached if the questions below are pertinent:
- How do we promote an open communication spirit that is rooted in mutual trust?
- How do we put the sparkle (back) into our team?
- How do we deal with change as a team?
- How do we make our team more effective, more efficient and more vigorous?
- How do we get everybody involved to openly discuss the mutual working relationship between the team members and how do we make this workable, in a duly constructive manner?
- How do we deal with conflicts?
- How do we use the unique strengths of each team member to their full potential?
- How do we improve the atmosphere within the team and raise people’s job satisfaction in the process?
- How do we get 1+1 to work out as 3?
- As part of an intake interview we catalogue the wishes and the business or the organisation’s goals that are to be achieved.
- A plan of action for the coaching process details how we propose to tackle the organisation’s needs. Setting out from this plan of action, we put forward an investment proposal.
