Teams are the primary vehicle for achieving goals that are too big and too complex to attain through the efforts of a single individual. Organizations can use teams on an ongoing basis or can pull them together on a project basis. The simple fact of the matter is that putting a group of individuals together does not insure that they will become and function as a team. Most likely, they will function as individuals, with separate agendas and different ideas of how each can achieve benefit from the work product to advance in their career. In a management team, this can be highly detrimental to the organization. In a project based team, it can almost insure less than stellar results.
Management Mpowerment offers a strategic team building process designed to turn a group of individuals into a high performing team. This process is not a magic trick that creates change overnight. It is founded in well documented theory matched with cutting-edge facilitation techniques.
Through our process, groups partake in development sessions that focus on creating:
- Common purpose.
- Mutual trust.
- Mutual commitment.
- Clear leadership, roles and lines of authority.
- Solid relationships allowing for healthy conflict.
- Clear understanding of the substance and style of communication
- Clear process
- Clear common goals
- Mutual accountability
Development of all of the above elements leads to outstanding results.
Every successful team is made up of individuals who can among them fill each of the necessary roles so as to provide vision, leadership, management, attention to detail and execution. We work with assessment tools that clarify for which roles each individual is best suited. They also clearly show any gaps that exist in a team’s competencies. For instance, if everyone is an “idea person” and no one an “implementer”, there may be much good discussion, but nothing will be accomplished.
It is our role to help you and your teams achieve outstanding results.
