So much of what we do and how we do it today depends on teams of people collaborating and working with each other in various ways and modes to bring about results and outcomes. And there is certainly much that has been published and studied about the wisdom of teams.
At On Purpose Leadership we have been working with a large number of teams to understand what drives success, what inhibits success and what fosters success. In response we have built our Building and Sustaining High Performing Teams Program.
In our experience essential elements include: Clarity with regard to:
Mission and Objectives
Beliefs, Values and Behaviours
Roles and Accountabilities
Policies, Structures and Supports
We make use of our basic Approach of analyze; Optimize and Implement in this realm as well. We have a unique T.E.A.M.S Assessment which can guide the process and identify issues requiring priority attention. And this tool in tandem with our suite of Assessment tools have produced spectacular results for the teams we work with.
Contact us today to explore our Build and Sustaining High performing teams program and bring it to your workplace teams.
Leaders maintain a Strategic Mindset - This means they are asking the questions:
What is the business trying to accomplish?
How must it position itself in the market? and relative to its competitors?
Has the Strategy changed or is it likely to soon?
What forces might affect/impact it most (likelihood and significance)?
How does my role (unit or function) contribute to our company’s competitive advantage?
What must each of my people contribute to our competitive advantage?
How does my unit impact or affect the company’s strategy?
Are we on the appropriate gates of focus sequence: (Profit; People; Process)?
Am I applying the appropriate leadership modality to propel my team forward?
Do I and my team access and maximize use of our greatest talents continually and bringing out the best in ourselves and others?
