Teamwork is your ultimate competitive advantage because it's so rare and because it's more powerful than strategy, finance and technology.
Your business could outperform any competition if you get all you people rowing in the same direction at the same time.
If this sounds simple you're probably thinking why is teamwork so elusive. The answer is that teams comprise of imperfect people with innate dysfunctions such as personal biases, politics and backstabbing. So building a strong and effective team may be difficult but it's very simple and is your ultimate competitive advantage. Achieve customer satisfaction and retention, revenue growth and profitability to beat your competition!
The goal of this programme is simply to achieve a cohesive and effective team. It's powered by Everything DiSC and is based on the model described in Patrick Lencioni's best-selling book, 'The Five Dysfunctions of a Team'.
It is suitable for use with teams at all levels of your organisation. Whether you're responsible for a multi-national business or a small department we can help you build a cohesive team.
The delegates learn (as a team) how they scored on each of the five components of the model: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results.
The results from the DiSC model help the delegates understand themselves and each other to create a stronger team.
Is this programme suitable for all teams?
No, it isn't and I do have alternatives if you'd like to give me a call.
There are two main criteria for suitability:
- Do you really have a team? I define a team as 3 - 10 people (up to 12 if necessary) who share the responsibility of achieving a common goal and meet regularly. If for example, you have a group of people reporting to the same manager who works with little interdependence the results may not meet your expectations.
- Your team must be 'intact'. By this I mean the members must have worked regularly together so they have a clear understanding of their collective goal and the other team members weaknesses, strengths and unproductive behaviours.
