How do your Management Teams work together?
BlogLeadership Development Posted: Tuesday 13th February 2018 by
How well do the management teams in your organisation work together to achieve an effective and sustained performance? Some teams naturally go through the ‘Forming, Norming, Storming, Performing’ (Dr Bruce Tuckman 1965) sequence whilst others need a helping hand to grow and develop.
A team can only become results-oriented when all team members place the team’s results first. When individuals aren’t held accountable, team members naturally tend to look out for their own interests, rather than the interests of the team. Teams can overcome this dysfunction by making the team results clear and rewarding the behaviors that contribute to the team’s results.
Let our Qualified Facilitators work with your teams to ensure optimal team performance for the future.
The facilitators will work through the personal development of each individual in the team using The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) which can help an individual to understand their personality type and gain an appreciation of other styles in the team.
As detailed above, the facilitation using the ‘Five Dysfunctions of a Team’ model will also build trust between the individuals in the team, remove the fear of conflict, and create an environment where healthy debate is a positive attribute of the team.
The team will then have the desire to commit to the actions the team creates having debated, discussed and eventually agreed on an objective to achieve. Every person will feel the need to take accountability for their own actions knowing there will be no ‘blame’ culture in the team.
Finally, the team will have positive and measurable collective and individual results to celebrate.
The Facilitator will spend an initial day with the team and then offer one-to-one individual coaching and finally follow up sessions to re-enforce the learning and further develop the behaviors of the team.
