Team Development Trainings
Decisions don’t get made; issues are revisited again and again; deadlines are missed; everyone is focused on their own priorities; drama, gossiping and hurt feelings. These are just a few of the symptoms of poor teamwork — and the cost to productivity and innovation is staggering.
Creating a Team Culture That Understands & Values Individual Strengths
What does it take for staff to be more committed, work together more effectively and feel good about contributing? A team that understands, appreciates and values the strengths of each member.
When a team moves from judging to valuing each individual contributor, a culture of problem-solving and innovation develops where the skills and ideas of each individual are fully utilized and potential is maximized.
From Conflict to Collaboration: Harnessing the Power of Disagreement on Your Team
Conflict, in and of itself, is not bad. In fact, it is inevitable and if managed productively it leads to new and better ways of doing things. Full potential is not realized in a serene environment – especially if the serenity is a result of artificial harmony. Leaders and team member alike have a responsibility to seek out conflict and assure that it is dealt with productively. The key to productive conflict is to focus it around ideas and issues – not people and personalities. Conflict is simply a disagreement between two or more people and when resolved it results in increased creativity, innovation and productivity.
