Team Coach and Doctor
In a period of crisis or uncertainty increasing demands are placed on businesses and management teams. It is during these periods of uncertainty that a board may call upon the services of a trusted and skilled senior operator to help facilitate a clear route through to stability.
Is the pressure of the current market conditions or the constant drive for results fracturing the team rather than pulling it together? We help top teams to identify what they need to change to pull together and work as a unit to achieve targets and objectives. We create the opportunity for everyone to take a good hard look at what’s going on and where the solutions lie. We also give everyone space to be heard and considered.
Speaking the Unspoken
Teams become dysfunctional for a variety of reasons, but we often find that at the heart of the problem lies an inability to communicate freely, openly and honestly. We find ‘Elephants under the Table’ – issues that everyone is familiar with, but no-one wants to talk about. We also often see an inability to challenge others positively and with respect, or to have that awkward conversation. Sometimes real operational challenges are blamed by the failing team for its performance when the cause is the lack of creativity and energy required to adapt to change.
Whatever the underlying causes, our workshop will give your team the opportunity to gain the insight and understanding it needs to turn itself around and move forward. Moreover, because we focus on enabling the team itself to deal with its problems, the actions and outcomes belong to the team, giving them more impact and making them sustainable.
