Building High-Performing Teams
Being part of a committed, winning team is motivating, inspiring and fun. On the other hand, dysfunctional teams, are a source of stress and anxiety, often leading to wasted effort and energy.
Our team development process encourages each member to commit and take responsibility to develop themselves and together define a compelling vision.
Greater collaboration, increased accountability, and organizational effectiveness will occur as team members develop and implement their individual behavioral change strategy and common vision.
Working with dozens of Executive Teams, we identified the following 5 key success factors making up high-performing teams.
|5 Key Success Factors of High-Performing Teams
|Clarity||They relentlessly focus on the future with a compelling vision
High-performing teams establish clarity for the vision of the organization, set strategic objectives and outline roles and responsibilities.
|Trust||They have each other’s back
Teamwork is built on mutual trust, transparency and sharing information because every team member has the team’s best interest in mind.
|Collaboration||They appreciate and integrate different skills and styles
High-performing teams are well rounded and balanced because each team member offers their own unique talents and expertise.
|Commitment||They disagree, decide, and commit
High-performing teams respect differences in viewpoints and are able to collectively come to an agreement. Then everyone commits to the course of action.
|Accountability||They bind to mutually agreed upon “Rules of Engagement”
There is a clear set of behavioral guidelines to which everyone adheres to. Team members hold each other to those standards.
