Got Great Teams?

Do You Want High Performing Teams?

•    Do you wonder why your highly talented group doesn’t get more done?
•    Do you fear your teams may be pouring money down the drain?
•    Did you know – the way they interact with each other helps determine their productivity?

Putting a group of people together with a mission does not make them a team!

If it did, none of your projects would end up behind schedule or delivering only mediocre value. Creating a team clearly takes work, but more importantly, it takes knowing how to turn a ‘group’ into a ‘team’.

What if you could have reliable results and improved morale?

Do you want teams with much higher productivity? How about if they also enjoyed their work even more, rather than feeling they were on a death march?

Performing teams create both outrageous levels of business results AND enjoy each other and their process together.

So, how do you get there? Let’s begin with where you are now.

The Geek Factor

Let’s face it, engineers and other technical folks are not always the best at interpersonal dynamics! Nor does their training typically teach them conflict management or how to communicate with others. Perhaps that wasn’t in your job description as technical manager, either. You’re more focused on the team’s technical “chops” and the work breakdown structure.

Is it surprising, then, that your teams act more like people thrown together from various functions than a well-honed team? Even carefully chosen and cultivated teams may have simply reached a plateau, leaving money on the table.

Getting the Most out of Your Team

The best executives and developing leaders typically receive coaching, helping them achieve their full potential. If coaching does this for individuals, think how a whole team could benefit! Coach a team and the effect is multiplied, as members learn how to function as an interdependent, high performance unit.

At Collective Edge, we have coaches trained in the new art of coaching teams as an entity, not merely coaching individuals in a ‘team’ setting.

“I felt he really helped our team develop a strong bond and deliver amazing results to our business customers, in terms of project throughput…. Not alot of folks understand people and relationships at the micro and macro level. Less are able to effectively analyze an organization and its culture and influence positive change – especially lasting change. In my time working with him, Michael was able to do these things. He also made the journey fun.” -Chris Scimone
